KLogger: A Simple Logging Class For PHP
A project written by Kenny Katzgrau and originally hosted at CodeFury.net. This marks the development of a newer version of KLogger.
KLogger is an easy-to-use logging class for PHP. It supports standard log levels like debug, info, warn, error, and fatal. Additionally, it isn't naive about file permissions (which is expected). It was meant to be a class that you could quickly include into a project and have working right away.
The class was written in 2008, but I have since received a number of emails both saying 'thanks' and asking me to add features.
This github project will host the development of the next version of KLogger. The original version of KLogger is tagged as version 0.1, and is available for download here.
KLogger's API will change for the better for it's 1.0 release. Expected changes include:
- Adherence to the Zend Coding Standards for PHP (right now, KLogger has a .NET-ish member and method naming convention). The names of private methods will be prefixed with '_' and camel-cased, for example.
- The implementation of a singleton pattern. A logger is likely needed in
many parts of an application — there should be no need to instantiate
multiple instances. You'll probably see:
$log = KLogger::instance();in the near future.
- Implementation of rolling log files. I've debated whether log files should based on simply the date, or both the date size of the log file. I'm thinking just the date will be sufficient to start.
- Put KLogger under a specific license (which will happen below)
- Have a bit more encapsulation of class members (and erase my cheeky comments about not having encapsulation)
Why use KLogger?
Why not? Just drop it in and go. If it saves you time and does what you need,
go for it! Take a line from the book of our C-code fathers: "
build upon the
work of others".
Who uses KLogger?
Klogger has been used in projects at:
* The University of Iowa * The University of Laverne * The New Jersey Institute of Technology * Middlesex Hospital in NJ
Additionally, it's been used in numerous projects, both commercial and personal.
