Picking up from the discussion at #6 (took me some time!)

Checks if attrs.error is an Error instance, and replaces it with the stacktrace as a string or the message if there is no stack attached.

Also there's a test case.

might be nice to also support log.error('request', err) directly, expanding to { message: m, stack: s }, both would be nice then you could just --type error --map message and get a nice list

How would --type error work with log.error('request', err)? (type equals request)

oops sorry --level error


And you can do -s error --map error.message
