CBFLog

TRY

  • Build/Run the CBFLogDemo project. Play with the settings in CBFLog.h to see how it affects logging.

USE

  • Add CBFLog.h and CBFLog.m to your project.
  • Add CBFLog.h to the files where you will be logging.
  • Define _CBFLOG_ENABLED. You can uncomment the first config line in CBFLog.h or you can add it in your project settings.

  • Optional: Add cbflog.xctxtmacros to your Text Macros directory. (~/Library/Application Support/Developer/Shared/Xcode/Specifications)

TIP

I added `-D_CBFLOG_ENABLED` to my Project Settings `Other C Flags` for 
my DEBUG project setting profile only. This means that my release and 
distro project profiles don't log anything, which is what I want. 
Logging is a fairly expensive process, so this should improve 
performance for your users.

CONFIGURE

  • Open CBFLog.h and edit settings in the CONFIGURATION area. All of the settings should be well documented.

NOTES

cbfLog can accept a couple arguments: level and override. Debug levels are 1-5 (DEBUG, INFO, NOTIFY, WARNING, ERROR, CRITICAL). Override is nice, so you can turn the GLOBAL_SOFT_ENABLE setting to NO (off) and still log a few important things without commenting out all your logging statements.

I have included a few convenience functions that you can use: cbfDebug, cbfInfo, cbfNotify, cbfWarning, cbfError, cbfCritical are mapped to a non-forced level-specific cbfLog call.

For even more convenient use, you can use the text macros. (<message> indicates the arg bubbles that you can jump to & change)

dlog expands to cbfDebug(@"<message>");
ilog expands to cbfInfo(@"<message>");
nlog expands to cbfNotify(@"<message>");
wlog expands to cbfWarning(@"<message>");
elog expands to cbfError(@"<message>");
clog expands to cbfCritical(@"<message>");
