itslog is a log formatter designed to aid rails development.

The formatting will prepend all log statements with a colored header and additional information about the statement.

[timestamp] [rails namespace]: [normal log], example:

15:16:32 action_view: Rendered layouts/_head.haml (8.5ms)

In addition to more readable logs you can tail and grep specific parts of your application. example:

tail -f log/development.log | grep active_record

Use itslog in conjunction with axe for faster access to your logs.


Add to your Gemfile in Rails:

group :development, :test do
  gem 'itslog'
