Hodel 3000 Compliant Logger

The Hodel 3000 Compliant Logger outputs like SyslogLogger (seattlerb.rubyforge.org/SyslogLogger/), except it doesn't need a syslog daemon running, such that your log come out exactly like syslog logs.

Mostly, this is intended to let you use tools that assume your log are in this syslog format, including:

See initial announcement here: nubyonrails.com/articles/a-hodel-3000-compliant-logger-for-the-rest-of-us

Installation and congiguration

gem install hodel_3000_compliant_logger

The main thing hodel_3000_complaint_logger provides is the Hodel3000ComplaintLogger class. It's a subclass of Logger (ruby-doc.org/core/classes/Logger.html), so you can use it as you would any Logger, really, except it outputs slightly different.

require 'hodel_3000_compliant_logger'
log = Hodel3000ComplaintLogger.new(STDOUT)
log.level = Logger::WARN

log.debug("Created logger")
log.info("Program started")
log.warn("Nothing to do!")

To use hodel_3000_complaint_logger in Rails 3 as a replacement for the default logger, place the following line in your application.rb:

config.logger = Hodel3000CompliantLogger.new(config.paths.log.first)

In Rails 2, instead use the following in your environment.rb file:

config.logger = Hodel3000CompliantLogger.new(config.paths.log.first)

NOTE

If you are using FastCGI, you may need to hard-code the hostname instead of using Socket.gethostname
