It would be great to have a forever logs my/program with an output in line, separated by space, so you could do :
$>forever start my/program && tail -fforever logs my/program`` and get all the logs from your program all at once.

I guess I can make a pullrequest if you lack of time to do this.

a one-liner that does the job:

require('forever').list(false, function(err, list) {console.log(list.filter(function(e){return e.file == arg || e.uid == arg}).map(function(e){return e.logFile}).join(' '))})

Duplicate of #93. One-liner looks good, might try that

Maybe I'm misinterpreting it, but shouldn't it keep tail running?

When I run forever logs my_currently_running_script.js it dumps the log contents then exits.
I was expecting it to keep the log file open and piping into stdout just like tail -f does.

@indexzero if you prefer, I can create a new issue if this is a bug and not the intended functionality.


The current implementation is the intended functionality. I could probably do what you wanted via

  $ forever logs file myscript.js

That would be beautiful :)
