Logster

Build Status Hex version Hex downloads Deps Status License

An easy to parse, one line logger for Elixir Plug.Conn and Phoenix, inspired by lograge.

With the default Plug.Logger, the log output for a request looks like:

[info] GET /articles/some-article
[info] Sent 200 in 21ms

With Logster, we've got logging that's much easier to parse and search through, such as:

[info] method=GET path=/articles/some-article format=html controller=HelloPhoenix.ArticleController action=show params={"id":"some-article"} status=200 duration=0.402 state=set

This becomes handy specially when integrating with log management services such as Logentries or Papertrail.

Installation

First, add Logster to your mix.exs dependencies:

def deps do
  [{:logster, "~> 0.1.4"}]
end

Then, update your dependencies:

$ mix deps.get

Usage

To use with a Phoenix application, replace Plug.Logger in the projects endpoint.ex file with Logster.Plugs.Logger:

# plug Plug.Logger
plug Logster.Plugs.Logger

To use it in as a plug, just add plug Logster.Plugs.Logger into the relevant module.

Filtering parameters

By default, Logster filters parameters named password, and replaces the content with [FILTERED].

You can update the list of parameters that are filtered by adding the following to your configuration file:

config :logster, :filter_parameters, ["password", "secret", "token"]

Changing the log level for a specific controller/action

To change the Logster log level for a specific controller and/or action, you use the Logster.Plugs.ChangeLogLevel plug.

For example, to change the logging of all requests in a controller to debug, add the following to that controller:

plug Logster.Plugs.ChangeLogLevel, to: :debug

And to change it only for index and show actions:

plug Logster.Plugs.ChangeLogLevel, to: :debug when action in [:index, :show]

This is specially useful for cases such as when you want to lower the log level for a healthcheck endpoint that gets hit every few seconds.
