CodeIgniter Log Viewer

Latest Stable Version Total Downloads License

This is a simple Log Viewer for viewing CodeIgniter logs in the browser or via API calls (that returns a JSON response)

This project is inspired by the laravel-log-viewer project.

A typical log view looks like this:

Usage

Requirement

  • PHP >= 7.1

Composer Installation

Execute:

composer require seunmatt/codeigniter-log-viewer

Controller Integration for Browser Display

All that is required is to execute the showLogs() method in a Controller that is mapped to a route:

A typical Controller (LogViewerController.php) will have the following content:

private $logViewer;

public function __construct() {
    parent::__construct(); 
    $this->logViewer = new \CILogViewer\CILogViewer();
    //...
}

public function index() {
    echo $this->logViewer->showLogs();
    return;
}

Then the route (application/config/routes.php) can be configured thus:

$route['logs'] = "logViewerController/index";

And that's all! If you visit /logs on your browser you should see all the logs that are in application/logs folder and their content

Configuration

  • The folder path for log files can be configured by adding clv_log_folder_path to CodeIgniter's config.php file e.g.

$config["clv_log_folder_path"] = APPPATH . "logs";

  • The file pattern for matching all the log files in the log folder can be configured by adding clv_log_file_pattern to CodeIgniter's config.php file e.g.

$config["clv_log_file_pattern"] = "log-*.php";

Viewing Log Files via API Calls

If you're developing an API Service, powered by CodeIgniter, this library can still be used to view your log files.

Controller Setup

The setup is the same as that mentioned above:

  • Create a Controller e.g. ApiLogViewerController.php,
  • Create a function e.g. index()
  • In the function, call echo $this->logViewer->showLogs();
  • Finally, map your controller function to a route.

API Commands

The API is implemented via a set of query params that can be appended to the /logs path.

Query:

  • /logs?api=list will list all the log files available in the configured folder

Response:

{
   "status": true,
   "log_files": [
       {
           "file_b64": "bG9nLTIwMTgtMDEtMTkucGhw",
           "file_name": "log-2018-01-19.php"
       },
       {
           "file_b64": "bG9nLTIwMTgtMDEtMTcucGhw",
           "file_name": "log-2018-01-17.php"
       }
   ]
}

file_b64 is the base64 encoded name of the file that will be used in further operations and API calls

Query:

  • /logs?api=view&f=bG9nLTIwMTgtMDEtMTcucGhw will return the logs contained in the log file specified by the f parameter.

The value of the f (f stands for file) is the base64 encoded format of the log file name. It is obtained from the /logs?api=list API call. A list of all available log files is also returned.

Response:

{
    "log_files": [
        {
            "file_b64": "bG9nLTIwMTgtMDEtMTkucGhw",
            "file_name": "log-2018-01-19.php"
        },
        {
            "file_b64": "bG9nLTIwMTgtMDEtMTcucGhw",
            "file_name": "log-2018-01-17.php"
        }
    ],
    "status": true,
    "logs": [
        "ERROR - 2018-01-23 07:12:31 --> 404 Page Not Found: admin/Logs/index",
        "ERROR - 2018-01-23 07:12:37 --> 404 Page Not Found: admin//index",
        "ERROR - 2018-01-23 15:23:02 --> 404 Page Not Found: Faviconico/index"
    ]
}

The API Query can also take one last parameter, sline that will determine how the logs are returned When it's true the logs are returned in a single line:

Query:

/logs?api=view&f=bG9nLTIwMTgtMDEtMTkucGhw&sline=true

Response:

{
   "log_files": [
       {
           "file_b64": "bG9nLTIwMTgtMDEtMTkucGhw",
           "file_name": "log-2018-01-19.php"
       },
       {
           "file_b64": "bG9nLTIwMTgtMDEtMTcucGhw",
           "file_name": "log-2018-01-17.php"
       }
   ],
   "status": true,
   "logs": "ERROR - 2018-01-23 07:12:31 --> 404 Page Not Found: admin/Logs/index\r\nERROR - 2018-01-23 07:12:37 --> 404 Page Not Found: admin//index\r\nERROR - 2018-01-23 15:23:02 --> 404 Page Not Found: Faviconico/index\r\n"
}

When it's false (Default), the logs are returned in as an array, where each element is a line in the log file:

Query:

/logs?api=view&f=bG9nLTIwMTgtMDEtMTkucGhw&sline=false OR logs?api=view&f=bG9nLTIwMTgtMDEtMTkucGhw

Response:

{
   
   "logs": [
       "ERROR - 2018-01-23 07:12:31 --> 404 Page Not Found: admin/Logs/index",
       "ERROR - 2018-01-23 07:12:37 --> 404 Page Not Found: admin//index",
       "ERROR - 2018-01-23 15:23:02 --> 404 Page Not Found: Faviconico/index"
   ]
}

Query:

/logs?api=delete&f=bG9nLTIwMTgtMDEtMTkucGhw will delete a single log file. The f parameter is the base64 encoded name of the file and can be obtained from the view api above.

Query:

/logs?api=delete&f=all will delete all log files in the configured folder path. Take note of the value for f which is the literal 'all'.

IF A FILE IS TOO LARGE (> 50MB), YOU CAN DOWNLOAD IT WITH THIS API QUERY /logs?dl=bG9nLTIwMTgtMDEtMTcucGhw

SECURITY NOTE

It is Highly Recommended that you protect/secure the route for your logs. It should not be an open resource!
