dyn.log 0.4.0

CRAN release: 2022-03-14

What’s Changed

  • New Features
    • Ground-up rewrite of the dynamic log dispatch mechanics, to make them:
      • Simpler. There were areas of the old implementation that were incredibly hard to follow (log levels and log messages, in particular).
      • Consistent. Every format object that needs contextual information now gets it injected via the context list in the dispatch function.
      • Cleaner. Now leverages even more awesomeness from rlang, specifically ‘rlang::new_function’ to dynamically create the log dispatch routines & ‘rlang::pairlist2’ to handle completely dynamic & non-defaulted parameters (msg).
      • Testable. The new mechanics are much more unit testable, and once the code is cleaned up more (and simplified further), will focus on this area.
  • Enhancements
    • updated the to be more reflective of the overall goal of the package.
    • streamlined the configuration (in init_logger) to have clear separation of concerns.
    • added a ‘default’ logger method that is based on the attached level with the highest severity, so in areas where you always want the lowest possible information logged (even if configurations change) then you can just use ‘Logger$default.’ Useful for packages that might be attached by multiple downstream packages with different level definitions.

dyn.log 0.3.3

What’s Changed

  • New Features
    • N/A
  • Enhancements
    • additional linters:
      • T_and_F_symbol_linter
      • equals_na_linter
      • nonportable_path_linter
    • resolved all warnings produced by including the new lintrs.
    • updated the to be more reflective of the overall goal of the package.
  • Other
    • vscode support
      • moved the development configuration that supports vscode into a separate branch and cleaned up all the additional dependencies.

dyn.log 0.3.2

What’s Changed

  • New Features
    • added a default logging function that uses the level with the highest severity.
    • changed how loggers are instantiated, you must now call init_logging() or specify the logging configuration with the dyn.log.config option.
  • Enhancements
    • cleaned up the entire configuration module and streamlined the process of initialization.
    • updated configuration vignette to reflect these changes.
    • added withr suggestion package to isolate all logging unit tests to their initialized environment.
    • added a configuration setting to change the variable name of the global logging instance. “Logger” is still the default, but now you can specify any legal R variable name by default.

dyn.log 0.3.1

What’s Changed

  • New Features
    • None
  • Enhancements
    • refactored the entire configuration module to streamline the process of attaching a logger to the global environment.
  • Bug-fixes
    • added an event handler to ‘.onAttach’ that monitors for the logger’s existence on every load; the annoying behavior of wiping local environment vars and the logger disappearing is now fully resolved.

    • object_name_lintr (R6 Class names have explicit excludes)
    • commas_lintr
    • assignment_lintr
    • object_useage_lintr

dyn.log 0.1.3-alpha

What’s Changed

  • New Features
    • Log layouts are now fully configuration driven, w/ some reasonable defaults.
  • Enhancements
    • cleaned up log level/layout active bindings so they don’t need separate accessor methods to get instantiated objects in the bindings (by name).
    • updated the README to use fansi package to display clean logging output like you would see in the terminal.
    • refactored log layouts to have a formats parameter that specify how to render the log layout.

dyn.log v0.1.1-alpha

Initial Version

  • New Features
  • baseline logging components are fully functional: levels, formats, layouts and the dispatcher.
  • pkg instantiates a singleton instance of the log dispatcher, and the default configuration will give you a fully functional logging environment.
  • cls level customization options are working as expected; you can create a log layout associated with an R6 type, and the have the logger spit out variables from the enclosing class. Example added to README.
