Introduction

Sample output while using better-logging with default configuration
Out of the box Javascript comes five different standardized logging types. However, as it stands only browsers are taking advantage of these different methods of logging. better-logging aims to improve the default logging experience of any node application, it is designed to be a drop in replacement for the default logging methods. Since better-logging only decorates the default logging methods you won't lose any functionality provided by other tooling. better-logging is not meant to be the be all and end all of node.js logging. It is just supposed to increase the usefulness of the default logging methods.
// Default in node.js
console.debug('foo'); // foo
console.log('foo'); // foo
console.info('foo'); // foo
console.warn('foo'); // foo
console.error('foo'); // foo
// With better-logging
require('better-logging')(console);
console.debug('foo'); // [11:46:35.294] [debug] foo
console.log('foo'); // [11:46:35.296] [log] foo
console.info('foo'); // [11:46:35.296] [info] foo
console.warn('foo'); // [11:46:35.298] [warn] foo
console.error('foo'); // [11:46:35.298] [error] foo
console.line('foo'); // foo
Better-logging calls the default implementation in the background.
require('better-logging')(console);
console.info('Hello World');
// Is the same as
console.info('[11:46:35.294] [info] Hello World')
