🥇 Features

  • Focus on high performance and agile perspective of things
  • Easy API and a default package-level instance, i.e golog#Fatalf/Errorf/Warnf/Infof/Debugf
  • Fully compatible with the standard library
  • Thanks to the pio library it supports any type of structure, gives you the ability to Hijack and Handle or Intercept the on-going logs too
  • Set or even Add unlimited number of output targets, io.Writer
  • Scan from any io.Reader and log to the defined output target(s)
  • Levels such as fatal,error, warn, info, debug, or disable
  • Beautiful (customizable) colors for leveled logs, automatically omit colors when output does not support colors (i.e files)
  • Incredible high-performant, 3 times faster than your favourite logger
  • Never-Panics

module your_project_name

go 1.13

require ( v0.0.10

$ go build

$ go get -u

golog is fairly built on top of the pio library, it has no more external dependencies.

package main

import (

func main() {
    // Default Output is `os.Stdout`,
    // but you can change it:
    // golog.SetOutput(os.Stderr)

    // Time Format defaults to: "2006/01/02 15:04"
    // you can change it to something else or disable it with:

    // Level defaults to "info",
    // but you can change it:

    golog.Println("This is a raw message, no levels, no colors.")
    golog.Info("This is an info message, with colors (if the output is terminal)")
    golog.Warn("This is a warning message")
    golog.Error("This is an error message")
    golog.Debug("This is a debug message")
    golog.Fatal("Fatal will exit no matter what, but it will also print the log message if logger's Level is >=FatalLevel")
