Integrate logging framework
What do you think about using a logging framework like winston (the fork in the link seems to work with electron)?
I don’t know if my debugging methods are wrong, but currently I’m debugging with a ssh session, having
tail -ffor error and out logs (or
pm2 log) and via web browser console to my mirror’s IP on port 8080 to catch logs from the main application, the
node_helperand a fetcher class.
In my opinion this method kinda inconvenient. I’d like to have all logs (even the ones from fetcher modules and
node_helpermodules) in one place.
If anyone has a better debugging method I’d appreciate any help and advice.
If all of you are doing it like me, I’d start integrating a logging framework for the whole node.js application, which covers global logging over modules and make a PR when ready (and of course if @MichMich wants this).
What do you think? Or do you have any advices for me?
I agree this should be improved. In the front end I already used a placeholder/proxy which we can simply adjust. (See the Log object).
In the backend such a proxy is not yet available. I think the best approach is adding a similar proxy so that we easily can swap out any 3rd party framework.
