4.x to 5.x

Message formatting

With version 5.x better-logging now adheres to the ISO8601 standard for dates and time stamps. This brings with it some changes to the message formatting context object.
  • The string format of ctx.date has changed from DD/MM/YYYY to YYYY-MM-DD.
  • The introduction of a unified ctx.time has rendered ctx.time12 and ctx.time24 redundant, and they have there for been removed. The string format of the new unified ctx.time is as follows hh:mm:ss.mmm where the additional mmm at the end stands for milliseconds.
// IN 4.x
betterLogging(console, {
format: (ctx) => `${ctx.date} ${ctx.time24} ${ctx.msg}`,
});
console.log('Hi'); // [25/05/2022] [20:54:58] Hi
// IN 5.x
betterLogging(console, {
format: (ctx) => `${ctx.date} ${ctx.time} ${ctx.msg}`,
});
console.log('Hi'); // [2022-05-25] [20:54:58.298] Hi
