Logging & Debugging

HTTP Request Logging

FoalTS uses morgan to log the HTTP requests. You can specify the output format using the environment variable SETTINGS_LOGGER_FORMAT or the config/default.json file:

{
  ...
  "settings": {
    "loggerFormat": "tiny"
  }
}

Logging Hook

FoalTS provides a convenient hook for logging debug messages: Log(message: string, options: LogOptions = {}).

interface LogOptions {
  body?: boolean;
  params?: boolean;
  headers?: string[]|boolean;
  query?: boolean;
}

Example:

import { Get, HttpResponseOK, Log } from '@foal/core';

@Log('AppController', {
  body: true,
  headers: [ 'X-CSRF-Token' ],
  params: true,
  query: true
})
export class AppController {
  @Get()
  index() {
    return new HttpResponseOK();
  }
}

Advanced Logging

If you need advanced logging, you might be interested in using winston, a popular logger in the Node.js ecosystem.

Here's an example on how to use it with Foal:

LoggerService

import * as winston from 'winston';

export class LoggerService {
  private logger;

  constructor() {
    this.logger = winston.createLogger({
      transports: [
        new winston.transports.Console(),
        new winston.transports.File({
          filename: 'logs.txt'
        })
      ]
    });
  }

  info(msg) {
    this.logger.info(msg);
  }

  warn(msg) {
    this.logger.warn(msg);
  }

  error(msg) {
    this.logger.error(msg);
  }

}

LogUserId hook

import { Hook } from '@foal/core';
// LoggerService import.

export function LogUserId() {
  return Hook((ctx, services) => {
    const logger = services.get(LoggerService);
    logger.info(`UserId is: ${ctx.user.id}`);
  });
}

ProductController

import { Get } from '@foal/core';
// LogUserId import.

export class ProductController {

  @Get('/')
  @LogUserId()
  readProducts() {
    ...
  }

}

AuthController

import { dependency, Post } from '@foal/core';
// LoggerService import.

export class AuthController {
  @dependency
  logger: LoggerService;

  @Post('/signup')
  signup() {
    ...
    this.logger.info('Someone signed up!');
  }

}
You can’t perform that action at this time.
