grape_logging

Code Climate Build Status

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'grape_logging'

And then execute:

$ bundle install

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install grape_logging

Basic Usage

In your api file (somewhere on the top)

require 'grape_logging'
logger.formatter = GrapeLogging::Formatters::Default.new
use GrapeLogging::Middleware::RequestLogger, { logger: logger }

ProTip: If your logger doesn't support setting formatter you can remove this line - it's optional

Features

Log Format

There are formatters provided for you, or you can provide your own.

GrapeLogging::Formatters::Default

[2015-04-16 12:52:12 +0200] INFO -- 200 -- total=2.06 db=0.36 -- PATCH /api/endpoint params={"some_param"=>{"value_1"=>"123", "value_2"=>"456"}}

GrapeLogging::Formatters::Json

{
  "date": "2015-04-16 12:52:12+0200",
  "severity": "INFO",
  "data": {
    "status": 200,
    "time": {
      "total": 2.06,
      "db": 0.36,
      "view": 1.70
    },
    "method": "PATCH",
    "path": "/api/endpoint",
    "params": {
      "value_1": "123",
      "value_2": "456"
    },
    "host": "localhost"
  }
}

GrapeLogging::Formatters::Lograge

severity="INFO", duration=2.06, db=0.36, view=1.70, datetime="2015-04-16 12:52:12+0200", status=200, method="PATCH", path="/api/endpoint", params={}, host="localhost"

GrapeLogging::Formatters::Logstash

{
  "@timestamp": "2015-04-16 12:52:12+0200",
  "severity": "INFO",
  "status": 200,
  "time": {
    "total": 2.06,
    "db": 0.36,
    "view": 1.70
  },
  "method": "PATCH",
  "path": "/api/endpoint",
  "params": {
    "value_1": "123",
    "value_2": "456"
  },
  "host": "localhost"
}

GrapeLogging::Formatters::Rails

Rails will print the "Started..." line:

Started GET "/api/endpoint" for ::1 at 2015-04-16 12:52:12 +0200
  User Load (0.7ms)  SELECT "users".* FROM "users" WHERE  "users"."id" = $1
  ...

The Rails formatter adds the last line of the request, like a standard Rails request:

Completed 200 OK in 349ms (Views: 250.1ms | DB: 98.63ms)

Custom

You can provide your own class that implements the call method returning a String:

def call(severity, datetime, _, data)
   ...
end

You can change the formatter like so

class MyAPI < Grape::API
  use GrapeLogging::Middleware::RequestLogger, logger: logger, formatter: MyFormatter.new
end

If you prefer some other format I strongly encourage you to do pull request with new formatter class ;)

Customising What Is Logged

You can include logging of other parts of the request / response cycle by including subclasses of GrapeLogging::Loggers::Base

class MyAPI < Grape::API
  use GrapeLogging::Middleware::RequestLogger,
    logger: logger,
    include: [ GrapeLogging::Loggers::Response.new,
               GrapeLogging::Loggers::FilterParameters.new,
               GrapeLogging::Loggers::ClientEnv.new,
               GrapeLogging::Loggers::RequestHeaders.new ]
end

FilterParameters

The FilterParameters logger will filter out sensitive parameters from your logs. If mounted inside rails, will use the Rails.application.config.filter_parameters by default. Otherwise, you must specify a list of keys to filter out.

ClientEnv

The ClientEnv logger will add ip and user agent ua in your log.

RequestHeaders

The RequestHeaders logger will add request headers in your log.

Logging to file and STDOUT

You can log to file and STDOUT at the same time, you just need to assign new logger

log_file = File.open('path/to/your/logfile.log', 'a')
log_file.sync = true
logger Logger.new GrapeLogging::MultiIO.new(STDOUT, log_file)

Set the log level

You can control the level used to log. The default is info.

class MyAPI < Grape::API
  use GrapeLogging::Middleware::RequestLogger,
    logger: logger,
    log_level: 'debug'
end

Logging via Rails instrumentation

You can choose to not pass the logger to grape_logging but instead send logs to Rails instrumentation in order to let Rails and its configured Logger do the log job, for example. First, config grape_logging, like that:

class MyAPI < Grape::API
  use GrapeLogging::Middleware::RequestLogger,
    instrumentation_key: 'grape_key',
    include: [ GrapeLogging::Loggers::Response.new,
               GrapeLogging::Loggers::FilterParameters.new ]
end

and then add an initializer in your Rails project:

# config/initializers/instrumentation.rb

# Subscribe to grape request and log with Rails.logger
ActiveSupport::Notifications.subscribe('grape_key') do |name, starts, ends, notification_id, payload|
  Rails.logger.info payload
end

The idea come from here: https://gist.github.com/teamon/e8ae16ffb0cb447e5b49

Logging exceptions

If you want to log exceptions you can do it like this

class MyAPI < Grape::API
  rescue_from :all do |e|
    MyAPI.logger.error e
    #do here whatever you originally planned to do :)
  end
end

Development

After checking out the repo, run bin/setup to install dependencies. Then, run bin/console for an interactive prompt that will allow you to experiment.

To install this gem onto your local machine, run bundle exec rake install. To release a new version, update the version number in version.rb, and then run bundle exec rake release to create a git tag for the version, push git commits and tags, and push the .gem file to rubygems.org.
