SwiftyBeaver Logging Provider for Vapor

Swift Vapor 3.x SwiftyBeaver 1.x Slack

Adds the powerful logging of SwiftyBeaver to Vapor for server-side Swift on Linux and Mac.


Add this to the Package.swift of your Vapor project:

dependencies: [
    .package(url: "https://github.com/SwiftyBeaver/SwiftyBeaver-Vapor.git", from: "1.1.0")),
	//...other packages here


In configure.swift:

/// Called before your application initializes.
public func configure(_ config: inout Config, _ env: inout Environment, _ services: inout Services) throws {
    // ...

    let loggingDestination = ConsoleDestination()
    try services.register(SwiftyBeaverProvider(destinations: [loggingDestination]))

    config.prefer(SwiftyBeaverVapor.self, for: Logger.self)

    // ...

Add the SwiftyBeaver logging destinations you want to use, optionally adjust their defaults like format, color, filter or minimum log level and you are ready to log 🙌


For example, you can log requests as they come in.

func index(_ req: Request) throws -> Future<[Foo]> {

    let logger = try? req.sharedContainer.make(Logger.self)
    logger?.log(req.description, at: .verbose, file: #file, function: #function, line: #line, column: #column)

    return Foo.query(on: req).all()

For more information see the SwiftyBeaver destination docs and how to set a custom logging format.
