re: What JS Logging library / tool do you use? VIEW POST


I have, a long time ago, registered the NPM package name anylogger, because basically logging in JS is a royal mess. If you build an app out of a few dozen packages, chances are you end up including 5 different logging libraries because every module chooses it's own logger.

Wouldn't it be much better if libraries would use a facade to log and leave the choice of the actual logger (and it's config) to the final app? A bit like what SLF4J is doing in Java land, but much simpler of course ;)

This is what anylogger is supposed to be... a Facade that libs can use and that can be replaced by a real logger like Winston, Bunyan, Loglevel, Debug, or, of course, Ulog.

If you are interested in this, please check it out. It's mostly in pipe-dream stage at the moment though. But I would love to hear feedback on this.
