easy_logging_yojson

Configuration loader for easy_logging with yojson backend
IN THIS PACKAGE

Easy logging yojson

This package provides the same features as Easy_logging, but is extended with configuration loader from the json format, using ppx_deriving_yojson as a deserializer.

Logging modules created by MakeLogging are enriched with the three following functions to instantiate loggers and allow easy external configuration :

  • val load_config : Yojson.Safe.json -> unit
  • val load_config_str : string -> unit
  • val load_config_file : string -> unit

Configuration example

{
    "handlers": {
        "file_handlers": {
             "logs_folder" : "logs",
             "truncate" : false
        }
    },
    "loggers": 
        [
            {
                "name": "Main",
                "level": "debug",
                "handlers": [ {"cli": {"level" : "debug"}} ] },
            {
                "name": "Main.A",
                "level": "info"},
