NAME ^

Log::Contextual::WarnLogger - Simple logger for libraries using Log::Contextual

SYNOPSIS ^

 package My::Package;
 use Log::Contextual::WarnLogger;
 use Log::Contextual qw( :log ),
   -default_logger => Log::Contextual::WarnLogger->new({
      env_prefix => 'MY_PACKAGE',
      levels => [ qw(debug info notice warning error critical alert emergency) ],
   });

 # warns '[info] program started' if $ENV{MY_PACKAGE_TRACE} is set
 log_info { 'program started' }; # no-op because info is not in levels
 sub foo {
   # warns '[debug] entered foo' if $ENV{MY_PACKAGE_DEBUG} is set
   log_debug { 'entered foo' };
   ...
 }

DESCRIPTION ^

This module is a simple logger made for libraries using Log::Contextual. We recommend the use of this logger as your default logger as it is simple and useful for most users, yet users can use "set_logger" in Log::Contextual to override your choice of logger in their own code thanks to the way Log::Contextual works.

METHODS ^

new

Arguments: Dict[ env_prefix => Str, levels => List ] $conf

 my $l = Log::Contextual::WarnLogger->new({
   env_prefix => 'BAR'
 });

or:

 my $l = Log::Contextual::WarnLogger->new({
   env_prefix => 'BAR',
   levels => [ 'level1', 'level2' ]

 });

Creates a new logger object where env_prefix defines what the prefix is for the environment variables that will be checked for the log levels.

The log levels may be customized, but if not defined, these are used:

trace
debug
info
warn
error
fatal

For example, if env_prefix is set to FREWS_PACKAGE the following environment variables will be used:

 FREWS_PACKAGE_UPTO

 FREWS_PACKAGE_TRACE
 FREWS_PACKAGE_DEBUG
 FREWS_PACKAGE_INFO
 FREWS_PACKAGE_WARN
 FREWS_PACKAGE_ERROR
 FREWS_PACKAGE_FATAL

Note that UPTO is a convenience variable. If you set FOO_UPTO=TRACE it will enable all log levels. Similarly, if you set it to FATAL only fatal will be enabled.

$level

Arguments: @anything

All of the following six methods work the same. The basic pattern is:

 sub $level {
   my $self = shift;

   warn "[$level] " . join qq{\n}, @_;
      if $self->is_$level;
 }

trace

 $l->trace( 'entered method foo with args ' join q{,}, @args );

debug

 $l->debug( 'entered method foo' );

info

 $l->info( 'started process foo' );

warn

 $l->warn( 'possible misconfiguration at line 10' );

error

 $l->error( 'non-numeric user input!' );

fatal

 $l->fatal( '1 is never equal to 0!' );

If different levels are specified, appropriate functions named for your custom levels work as you expect.

is_$level

All of the following six functions just return true if their respective environment variable is enabled.

is_trace

 say 'tracing' if $l->is_trace;

is_debug

 say 'debuging' if $l->is_debug;

is_info

 say q{info'ing} if $l->is_info;

is_warn

 say 'warning' if $l->is_warn;

is_error

 say 'erroring' if $l->is_error;

is_fatal

 say q{fatal'ing} if $l->is_fatal;

If different levels are specified, appropriate is_$level functions work as you would expect.
