Currently libraries are only compiled for Visual Studio 2012, Linux64, and OSX
Enable production-ready logging in oF apps, notably including configuration via file and rolling logs.
The logger needs to be initialized by calling
logger.init() before use. If you have a file log4cpp.properties in your data/ directory, then this will be used to configure Log4Cpp. There is an example properties file in exampleConfigFile. Keep in mind that the log levels specified in that file are Log4Cpp log levels, not oF log levels.
In order to use the Log4Cpp functionality while still calling
ofLog____ methods, you need to set Log4Cpp as a channel:
shared_ptr<ofxLog4CppChannel> log(new ofxLog4CppChannel()); ofSetLoggerChannel(log);
If you intend to use ofxLog4Cpp this way, then you don't need to call
init() explicitly, since
new ofxLog4CppChannel() initializes the logger for you.
This is the mapping from oF log levels to Log4Cpp log levels:
ofLogLevel::OF_LOG_FATAL_ERROR <-> log4cpp::Priority::FATAL ofLogLevel::OF_LOG_ERROR <-> log4cpp::Priority::ERROR ofLogLevel::OF_LOG_WARNING <-> log4cpp::Priority::WARN ofLogLevel::OF_LOG_NOTICE <-> log4cpp::Priority::INFO ofLogLevel::OF_LOG_VERBOSE <-> log4cpp::Priority::DEBUG ofLogLevel::OF_LOG_SILENT <-> log4cpp::Priority::EMERG

Version 0.1 (Date):
Building Log4Cpp lib
This is built on top of Log4Cpp 1.1.1. This section roughly outlines what to do if you want to add static libraries for other platforms. Currently there are static libraries for Linux64 and Visual Studio 2012.
The source for Log4Cpp is hosted on sourceforge
Once downloaded and unzipped:
$cd /PATH/TO/UNZIPPED/LIB4CPP/ $./configure --prefix=/PATH/TO/UNZIPPED/LIB4CPP/install_prefix $./make $./make install
$cd /PATH/TO/UNZIPPED/LIB4CPP/ $./configure CFLAGS="-arch i386 -arch x86_64" CXXFLAGS="-arch i386 -arch x86_64" LDFLAGS="-arch i386 -arch x86_64" --prefix=/Users/brettrenfer/Dropbox/Code/Native/log4cpp/install_prefix $./make $./make install
That conveniently places the libs in a directory called install_prefix. You can grab the static lib from install_prefix/lib and drop it in the appropriate lib directory for this addon.
