README.md

node-systemd

Node.js module for native access to the journald facilities in recent versions of systemd. In particular, this capability includes passing key/value pairs as fields that journald can use for filtering.

This should normally be installed using npm

Also includes a plugin for winston

Usage

Very basic (see test.js for more detailed example):

  var journald = require('journald').Log;
  journald.log('MESSAGE=hello world', 'ARG1=first_argument', 'ARG2=second_argument');

Developing

Install node-gyp to build the extension:

sudo npm install -g node-gyp

Use npm to build the extension:

npm install

Or, build the C++ extension manually:

node-gyp configure && node-gyp build

Run test app:

node test.js

Viewing Output

Quick way to view output with all fields as it comes in:

sudo journalctl -f -p7 --output=json-pretty
