ArduinoLog - C++ Log library for Arduino devices
An minimalistic Logging framework for Arduino-compatible embedded systems.
ArduinoLog is a minimalistic framework to help the programmer output log statements to an output of choice, fashioned after extensive logging libraries such as log4cpp ,log4j and log4net. In case of problems with an application, it is helpful to enable logging so that the problem can be located. ArduinoLog is designed so that log statements can remain in the code with minimal performance cost. In order to facilitate this the loglevel can be adjusted, and (if your code is completely tested) all logging code can be compiled out.
- Different log levels (Error, Info, Warn, Debug, Verbose )
- Supports multiple variables
- Supports formatted strings
- Supports formatted strings from flash memory
- Fixed memory allocation (zero malloc)
- MIT License
- All Arduino boards (Uno, Due, Mini, Micro, Yun...)
This package has been published to the Arduino & PlatformIO package managers, but you can also download it from GitHub.
- By directly loading fetching the Archive from GitHub:
- Go to https://github.com/thijse/Arduino-Log
- Click the DOWNLOAD ZIP button in the panel on the
- Rename the uncompressed folder Arduino-Log-master to Arduino-Log.
- You may need to create the libraries subfolder if its your first library.
- Place the Arduino-Log library folder in your /libraries/ folder.
- Restart the IDE.
- For more information, read this extended manual
Serial.begin(9600); // Initialize with log level and log output. Log.begin (LOG_LEVEL_VERBOSE, &Serial); // Start logging text and formatted values Log.error ( "Log as Error with binary values : %b, %B"CR , 23 , 345808); Log.warning (F("Log as Warning with integer values from Flash : %d, %d"CR) , 34 , 799870);
The log library needs to be initialized with the log level of messages to show and the log output. The latter will often be the Serial interface. Optionally, you can indicate whether to show the log type (error, debug, etc) for each line.
begin(int level, Print* logOutput, bool showLevel) begin(int level, Print* logOutput)
The loglevels available are
* 0 - LOG_LEVEL_SILENT no output * 1 - LOG_LEVEL_FATAL fatal errors * 2 - LOG_LEVEL_ERROR all errors * 3 - LOG_LEVEL_WARNING errors, and warnings * 4 - LOG_LEVEL_NOTICE errors, warnings and notices * 5 - LOG_LEVEL_TRACE errors, warnings, notices & traces * 6 - LOG_LEVEL_VERBOSE all
Log.begin(LOG_LEVEL_ERROR, &Serial, true);
if you want to fully remove all logging code, uncomment
#define DISABLE_LOGGING in
ArduinoLog.h, this may significantly reduce your sketch/library size.
The library allows you to log on different levels by the following functions
void fatal (const char *format, va_list logVariables); void error (const char *format, va_list logVariables); void warning (const char *format, va_list logVariables); void notice (const char *format, va_list logVariables); void trace (const char *format, va_list logVariables); void verbose (const char *format, va_list logVariables);
where the format string can be used to format the log variables
* %s display as string (char*) * %c display as single character * %d display as integer value * %l display as long value * %x display as hexadecimal value * %X display as hexadecimal value prefixed by `0x` * %b display as binary number * %B display as binary number, prefixed by `0b' * %t display as boolean value "t" or "f" * %T display as boolean value "true" or "false" * %D,%F display as double value
The format string may come from flash memory.
Log.fatal (F("Log as Fatal with string value from Flash : %s"CR ) , "value" ); Log.error ( "Log as Error with binary values : %b, %B"CR , 23 , 345808); Log.warning (F("Log as Warning with integer values from Flash : %d, %d"CR) , 34 , 799870); Log.notice ( "Log as Notice with hexadecimal values : %x, %X"CR , 21 , 348972); Log.verbose (F("Log as Verbose with bool value from Flash : %t, %T"CR) , true, false );
(if your code is completely tested) all logging code can be compiled out. Do this by uncommenting
Logging.h. This may significantly reduce your project size.
