logutils - Another Logger in Ruby

Usage

Logging levels:

[ALL] < DEBUG < INFO < WARN < ERROR < FATAL < [OFF]

Start by getting a logger e.g.:

logger = LogUtils::Logger.new

or

include LogUtils

logger = Logger.new

now you're ready to log using the methods #debug, #info, #warn, etc.

logger.debug "msg"
logger.info "another msg"
logger.warn "another msg"
logger.error "another msg"
logger.fatal "another msg"

To get a Logger use

logger = Logger[ self ]  # pass in object reference

or

logger = Logger[ SportDb::Reader ]    # pass in class reference

or

logger = Logger[ 'SportDb::Reader' ]  # pass in class name (as string)

Logging Mixin

Note: In a class for convenience you can include the logging machinery with a single line using the Logging mixin e.g.

include LogUtils::Logging

This will add/mixin the logger attribute reader e.g.

def logger
  @logger ||= Logger[ self ]
end

plus the constants for all logging levels, that is, FATAL, ERROR, WARN, etc.

Example:

class SampleClass
  include Logging

  def initialize
    logger.info 'hello SampleClass'
  end
end
