Pupergrep - have fun with log files, you nerds!

Screenshots & Features

Everybody loves screenshots!

screenshot

  • Grep only lines you like (skip non-fatal errors, stack traces, INFO lines).
  • Highlight only lines you dislike (FATAL errors, long responses).
  • Group highlight and grep conditions with AND/OR;
  • Limit output buffer to keep the whole log area on the screen or make it large to see everthing.
  • Pause log to take a look for fun facts in your error log.
  • Fast switching between many logs with handsome list with search box.
  • Font-size switching for eagles.
  • Send your colleagues links to your favorite logs with your settings and bookmark them.
  • Link activation in logs - just click on it to open.
  • Whole system and current log activity state indication.
  • Support for plain text and html logs.
  • Open-source. Can you imagine that?

Demo

Yes, we have it, right here: http://home.bobrik.name/. Feel free to touch it before using!

Select log you like and try to push some buttons.

Installation

This is pretty simple, believe me!

mkdir ~/mypupergrep
cd ~/mypupergrep
mkdir node_modules
npm install pupergrep

Now you have pupergrep module installed.

PuperGrep needs to know what to monitor. Simple server to make you understand what I mean:

(function() {
    var PuperGrep = require("pupergrep"),
        puper     = new PuperGrep(),
        manager   = puper.getLogReaderManager();

    manager.addLog("my_cool_log", "/var/log/my_cool_log", function(error) {
        if (error) {
            console.log("Error adding test log", error);
            return;
        }

        // if your log may be interpreted as html:
        // manager.setLogType("my_cool_log", "html");

        puper.listen(8080, "127.0.0.1");
    });
})();

Save it to ~/mypupergrep/server.js. Run it right after that:

node server.js

Now cross your fingers and open http://127.0.0.1:8080/ in your favorite browser. This is it!

Nginx configuration (optional)

If you want nginx in front of your logs for security or whatever, this is example config:

server {
    listen 80;
    server_name localhost;

    location / {
        index index.html;
        root /home/user/mypupergrep/node_modules/pupergrep/public;
    }

    location /socket.io/ {
        proxy_http_version 1.1;
        proxy_pass http://127.0.0.1:8080/socket.io/;
    }
}

This way you may open http://127.0.0.1/ and enjoy your logs. Note that nginx does not support websockets yet and you'll need to wait for 2 seconds to switch from ws to xhr-polling.

Troubles

Let me guess, you tried to monitor access log of nginx server that proxy your PuperGrep? You bastard! Stop it right now!

Another trouble? Hm. Post an issue!
