Loggerithm

CI Status CocoaPods Version Carthage compatible License Platform

A lightweight Swift logger, uses print in Debug and NSLog in Production with colourful output.

Why

In Swift, we usually use print to log information into console. However, it doesn't log anything in production version.

Thus we want to use NSLog in production but still want the efficiency of print in development. (print is faster than NSLog).

This project started more than half a year ago, named ZHSwiftLogger. At that time, no other Swift loggers provided this functionality. So I developped this logger for my personal usage.

Nowadays, we have more and more great Swift loggers. While, Loggerithm is lightweight, pretty straightforward and handy to use.

Features

  • [x] Use print in Debug and NSLog in Production.
  • [x] Formatted output, just like NSLog.
  • [x] Log level Support.
  • [x] Colorful output and color customization.
  • [x] Comprehensive Unit Test Coverage.

Requirements

  • iOS 8.0+ / Mac OS X 10.9+
  • Xcode 7.0

Installation

CocoaPods

CocoaPods is a dependency manager for Cocoa projects.

To integrate Loggerithm into your Xcode project using CocoaPods, specify it in your Podfile:

source 'https://github.com/CocoaPods/Specs.git'
use_frameworks!

pod 'Loggerithm', '~> 1.5'

Then, run the following command:

$ pod install

Carthage

Carthage is a decentralized dependency manager that builds your dependencies and provides you with binary frameworks.

You can install Carthage with Homebrew using the following command:

$ brew update
$ brew install carthage

To integrate Loggerithm into your Xcode project using Carthage, specify it in your Cartfile:

github "honghaoz/Loggerithm" ~> 1.5

Run carthage update to build the framework and drag the built Loggerithm.framework into your Xcode project.

Swift Package Manager

The Swift Package Manager is a tool for automating the distribution of Swift code and is integrated into the swift compiler. It is in early development, but Loggerithm does support its use on supported platforms.

Once you have your Swift package set up, adding Loggerithm as a dependency is as easy as adding it to the dependencies value of your Package.swift.

dependencies: [
    .Package(url: "https://github.com/honghaoz/Loggerithm.git", majorVersion: 1)
]

Manually

  • Add Swift files in Source folder into your project

  • Add DEBUG flag to Swift Compiler:

    • Open project setting
    • Select your target
    • Go to Build Settings
    • Search Swift
    • Under Swift Compiler - Custom Flags section, in Other Swift Flags line, add -D DEBUG

Colorful Output Support

Need XcodeColors plugin installed.

XcodeColors Installation

Setup Environment Variable

Once XcodeColors is installed and loaded properly. To let logger automatically turn on, you need to add "XcodeColors" = "YES" environment variable to your build scheme.

This can be done in following way:

  • Under target selection, click Edit Scheme...
  • Under Arguments tab, in Environment Variables, hit + to add a new environment variable with name "XcodeColors" and value "YES".

You can also manually force to turn on/off colorful output by modifying useColorfulLog property

Usage

Basic

If you are using CocoaPods to integrate Loggerithm. Import Loggerithm first:

import Loggerithm
var log = Loggerithm()

// Usage example
log.verbose("Verbose message...")
log.debug("Debug message...")
log.info("Info message...")
log.warning("Warning message...")
log.error("Error message...")

Results:

Log Levels

By default, logLevel is .Verbose for development and .Warning for Production.

LogLevel from low to high is

.All

.Verbose

.Debug

.Info

.Warning

.Error

.Off

Logging with level lower than logLevel will be ignored.

Advanced

Fields

Log string containts 5 fields, format is:

y-MM-dd HH:mm:ss.SSS [LogLevel] [FileName:LineNumber] functionName: message

All logging fields can be turned on/off:

var log = Loggerithm()

log.showDateTime = false
log.info("date time is turned off.")

log.showLineNumber = false
log.info("Line number is turned off.")

log.showFileName = false
log.info("File name is turned off.")

log.showFunctionName = false
log.info("Function name is turned off.")

log.showLogLevel = false
log.info("Log level is turned off.")

log.emptyLine()
log.info("Restoring to full format...")

Results:

Formatted Output

var log = Loggerithm()
log.verbose("I can use format: %d + %d = %d", args: 1, 1, 2)

Results:

Color Output

Switch On/Off

See Installation/Colorful Output Support for more detail.

You can modify useColorfulLog to turn on/off colorful output.

log.useColorfulLog = false
log.info("Color is turned off.")
log.useColorfulLog = true
log.info("Color is turned on.")

Note, If you don't have XcodeColors plugin installed but leaving useColorfulLog turned on, this will result in hidden color setting code to be visible:

g190,190,190;2015-08-14 16:55:34.075 [Verbose] [ViewController.swift:34] viewDidLoad(): Verbose message...[;
g60,161,202;2015-08-14 16:55:34.076 [Debug] [ViewController.swift:35] viewDidLoad(): Debug message...[;

Color Customization

var log = Loggerithm()

log.verboseColor = UIColor.grayColor()
log.debugColor = UIColor.greenColor()
log.infoColor = UIColor.yellowColor()
log.warningColor = UIColor.orangeColor()
log.errorColor = UIColor.redColor()

log.verbose("Verbose message...")
log.debug("Debug message...")
log.info("Info message...")
log.warning("Warning message...")
log.error("Error message...")
