A Mysql transport for winston.


Installing winston-mysql-transport via npm

  $ npm install winston
  $ npm install winston-mysql-transport

(or add it to your package.json)


First you must generate your log table

/*file : extras/schema.sql*/
CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS `my_database`.`log_table` (
    `id` int(10) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
    `level` varchar(45) NOT NULL,
    `message` text NOT NULL,
    `timestamp` datetime NOT NULL,
    `meta` varchar(255),
  `meta_stack` text NOT NULL,
    `hostname` varchar(255),
    PRIMARY KEY (`id`)

And in your code...

  var winston = require('winston');

  // Requiring `winston-mysql-transport` will expose
  // `winston.transports.Mysql`

  options = {
    database : "my_database",
    table : "log_table",
    user : "root"

  winston.add(winston.transports.Mysql, options);

You can find a list of options that you can pass here :



This transport does not support (yet) :

  • streaming
  • querying
  • Saving of metadata (implement stack saving only)
