AngularJS LogX

LogX provides an extended version to AngularJS $log utilities to deliver logging output similar to:

nglog-ouptut


Originally published as a set of classes that must be manually cloned and intergrated into each project, this repository has evolved and now has multiple purposes:

  1. Configured as the GitHub source for the Bower component angular-logX
  2. Provides source code, build scripts for the angluar-logX library/component
  3. Provides examples of manually using the $log decorator classes: Demos #1 - #4
  4. Provides an example of using the Bower angular-logX component with its mindspace.logX angular module. See the custom SPA: Demo #5

Using/Installing the Bower Component

Simple use the Bower command to install this component (angular-logX module/library) within your AMD SPA application

bower install angular-logX --save

Which will install the release library code as a Bower package.

Afterwards, developers can use the following AngularJS plugins (for logging) within their own AngularJS SPAs:

  1. Concatenated : /angular-logX/release/amd/angular-logX.js
  2. Minified : /angular-logX/release/amd/angular-logX.min.js

It is important to note that currently only an AMD library is available for use within AngularJS Browser SPA applications.
This means that custom SPA(s) using /release/amd/angular-logx.js must use RequireJS.
Future releases will provide CommonJS versions [for NodeJS apps] and UMD versions of the library.

Developers should be aware that when the component is installed with Bower (as shown above), the pre-build source is not available. Full source is available within the Git repository; so clone it and play.


Use the Source Code and build the AMD Library (locally)

The angular-logX library is deployed as a concatenated AMD library. To build the library (and its minified version), clone the repository locally and open a Terminal window to execute the following commands.

  1. Install the Grunt libraries npm update
  2. Build the libraries using Grunt

The new compiled libraries are deployed to:

  1. ./release/amd/*.js
  2. ./demos/webroot/assets/vendor/angular-logX/release/amd

Future versions for deploying as CommonJS libraries will be available soon...


Repository and Demos

If you clone the repository, the demos/build directory has its own Bower scripts to install all Bower vendor libraries needed to run the demo SPAs. These libraries will be installed within demos/webroot/assets/vendor/.

If you run a webserver with its webroot set to ./demos/webroot you can explore the Demos and their console output.

Demo Snapshot

See the Demo(s) ReadMe for details.


Demo #5 - Using the AngularJS Enhanced Logging Plugin

Demo #5 (bootstrap.js) shows an example of how to use the Logging classes within your own SPA.

  • First we load the script using head.js( ).
  • Then simply include the Enhanced Logging module dependency mindspace.logX when we configure the AngularJS SPA.


    var pluginURL = "/assets/vendor/angular-logX/release/amd/" ;
    head.js(

      { angular      : "/assets/vendor/angular/angular.js"  },
      { require      : "/assets/vendor/requirejs/require.js" },
      { logX :  pluginURL + "angular-logX.min.js"  }

    )
    .ready( "ALL", function() {

        // Dynamically load the application files...

        require.config (
        {
            appDir  : '',
            baseUrl : '/src/demo/5',
            paths   :
            {
                'utils'        : 'myApp/utils',
                 'mindspace.utils' : '/assets/vendor/angular-logX/release/amd/angular-logX.min'
            },
            bundles: {
                'mindspace.utils': [
                    // List external AMDs that are known
                    'mindspace/logger/ExternalLogger',
                    'mindspace/utils/supplant',
                    'mindspace/utils/makeTryCatch'
                ]
            }
        });


        /**
         * Specify main application dependencies...
         * one of which is the Authentication module.
         */
        var dependencies = [
                'myApp/services/Authenticator',
                'myApp/controllers/LoginController'
            ],
            appName = 'myApp.Application';

        /**
         * Now let's start our AngularJS app...
         * which uses RequireJS to load the sxm packages and code
         */
        require( dependencies, function ( $log, Authenticator, LoginController )
        {
            /**
             * Start the main application; include dependency on the Enhanced Logging plugin
             * `mindspace.logX`
             */

            angular.module(     appName,           [ 'mindspace.logX' ]   )
                   .value(      "session",         { sessionID : null }    )
                   .factory(    "authenticator",   Authenticator           )
                   .controller( "LoginController", LoginController         );
        });

    });
