Swift Library for better prints and to log prints.


The source code is well documented, for some help here is some example usage:

(See also the playground included with the project)

import Foundation
import SwiftLoggedPrint

//The usage of a subclass is recommended sice it allows for a shorter name in the code and to customize the prefix
class Log: LoggedPrinter{
    override class var prefix: String{
        return "[My App]"
    override class var debugPrefix: String{
        return "[Debug]"

for i in 0...1{
Log.displayPrintTime = i == 1 //The first time the log should display without the date, the second time with the date
Log.trackPrintTime = i == 1 //The first time the log will not keep track of the time, the second time it will
Log.debug("This should print and be visible in the log")
Log.print("Hello this is my app!") //this will print and show up in the log

Log.allowsLogging = false

Log.debug("This should print and not be visible in the log")
Log.print("Hello this is my app!") //This will print and not show up in the log

Log.enabled = false

Log.print("This should not print and not be visible in the log")

Log.enabled = true
Log.allowsLogging = true


Log.readLoggedDebugLines = false

print(" ----- Here is the log so far [excluding debug lines]: \n\n\(Log.readAllLog() ?? "")")

Log.readLoggedDebugLines = true

print(" ---- Here is the log so far [with debug lines]: \n\n\(Log.readAllLog() ?? "")")

print(" ---- Here is the RAW log so far: \n\n\(Log.getCompleteLog().json(prettyPrinted: true) ?? "")")

Who should use this Library?

This library should be used by Swift apps/programs that needs better printing management compared to what Swift's Foundation library provvides and that needs some logs to provvide.


This code should work for almost any platform/target that has the Swift Foundation library or any equivalent one that's named the same, and that provvides the same basic types and functionalities.

About the project

This code was created as part of my TINU project (https://github.com/ITzTravelInTime/TINU) and has been separated and made into it's own library to make the main project's source less complex and more focused on it's aim.

Also having this as it's own library allows for code to be updated separately and so various versions of the main TINU app will be able to be compiled all with the latest version of this library.
