LoggerAPI

A logger protocol that provides a common logging interface for different kinds of loggers. In addition, a class with a set of static functions for logging within your code is provided.

Kitura uses this API throughout its implementation when logging.

Usage

Add dependencies

Add the LoggerAPI package to the dependencies within your application’s Package.swift file. Substitute "x.x.x" with the latest LoggerAPI release:

.package(url: "https://github.com/IBM-Swift/LoggerAPI.git", from: "x.x.x")

Add LoggerAPI to your target's dependencies:

.target(name: "example", dependencies: ["LoggerAPI"]),

Import package

import LoggerAPI

Log messages

Add log messages to your application:

Log.warning("This is a warning.")
Log.error("This is an error.")

Define a logger

You need to define a logger in order to output these messages:

Log.logger = ...

You can write your own logger implementation. In the case of Kitura, it defines HeliumLogger as the logger used by LoggerAPI. You can find out more about HeliumLogger here.
