NAME ^

Log::Structured - Log events in a structured manner

VERSION ^

version 0.001002

SYNOPSIS ^

 use Log::Structured;

 my $structured_log = Log::Structured->new({
   category            => 'Web Server',
   log_category        => 1,
   priority            => 'trace',
   log_priority        => 1,
   log_file            => 1,
   log_line            => 1,
   log_date            => 1,
   log_event_listeners => [sub {
      my ($self, $e) = @_;
      my @date = @{$e->{date}};

      my $ymd_hms  = "$date[5]-$date[4]-$date[3] $date[2]:$date[1]:$date[0]";
      my $location = "$e->{file}:$e->{line}";
      warn "[$ymd_hms][$location][$e->{priority}][$e->{category}] $e->{message}"
   }, sub {
      open my $fh, '>>', 'log';
      print {$fh} encode_json($_[1]) . "\n";
   }],
 });

 $structured_log->log_event({ message => 'Starting web server' });

 $structured_log->log_event({
   message => 'Oh no!  The database melted!',
   priority => 'fatal',
   category => 'Core',
 });

DESCRIPTION ^

This module is meant to produce logging data flexibly and powerfully. All of the data that it produces can easilly be serialized or put into a database or printed on the top of a cake or whatever else you may want to do with it.

ATTRIBUTES ^

log_event_listeners

ArrayRef[CodeRef], coderefs get called in order, as methods, with log events as an argument

caller_clan

A stringified regex matching packages to use when getting any caller information (including stacktrace.) Typically this will be used to exclude things from the caller information. So to exclue DBIx::Class and SQL::Abstract from your caller information:

 caller_clan => '^DBIx::Class|^SQL::Abstract',

category

String representing the category of the log event

priority

String representing the priority of the log event. Should be debug, trace, info, warn, error, or fatal.

start_time

Returns an ArrayRef containing the time the object was instantiated

last_event

Returns an ArrayRefh containing the last time a log event occurred

caller_depth

An integer caller levels to skip when getting any caller information (not including stacktrace.)

ATTRIBUTES TO ENABLE LOG DATA ^

All of the following attributes will enable their respective data in the log event:

METHODS ^

add_log_event_listener

Takes a coderef to be added to the "log_event_listeners"

log_event

Takes a hashref of the data to be passed to the event listeners. All of the data except for message, category, and priority will be automatically populated by the methods below, unless they are passed in.

milliseconds_since_start

Returns milliseconds since object has been instantiated

milliseconds_since_last_log

Returns milliseconds since previous log event

line

Returns the line at the correct depth

file

Returns the file at the correct depth

package

Returns the package at the correct depth

subroutine

Returns the subroutine at the correct depth

date

Returns an arrayref containing the results from localtime

host

Returns the host of the machine being logged on

pid

Returns the pid of the process being logged

stacktrace

Returns the a stacktrace ending at the correct depth. The stacktrace is an arrayref of arrayrefs, where the inner arrayrefs match the return values of caller in list context

SEE ALSO ^

During initial development all the code from this module was part of Log::Sprintf. This module continues to work with Log::Sprintf. For example the "SYNOPSIS"' example of instantiation could be rewritten as:

 use Log::Structured;
 use Log::Sprintf;

 my $formatter = Log::Sprintf->new({ format => "[%d][%F:%L][%p][%c] %m" });

 my $structured_log = Log::Structured->new({
   category            => 'Web Server',
   log_category        => 1,
   priority            => 'trace',
   log_priority        => 1,
   log_file            => 1,
   log_line            => 1,
   log_date            => 1,
   log_event_listeners => [sub {
      warn $formatter->sprintf($_[1])
   }, sub {
      open my $fh, '>>', 'log';
      print {$fh} encode_json($_[1]) . "\n";
   }],
 });
