Check if EncodeLevel is set to avoid nil pointer dereference #1058



Copy link

@aerosol aerosol commented Feb 4, 2022


Apologies in advance, this is my first go PR.

This PR checks if EncodeLevel is set before calling it on final encoder clone. This prevents panic on nil pointer dereference in case it hasn't been supplied by the user. For an untrained eye, the stacktrace wasn't making it super clear that EncodeLevel must be provided along with LevelKey, so hopefully an explicit check hints at it for someone reading the source code.

I wasn't sure if maybe providing a sensible default here would've been better, but looking at the console logger, a similar check is made.
