Version 1.0 of log4js-ext, my logging library for ExtJs, is out!
It adds some extra functionality over 0.9 (which was almost a 1.0 candidate), but the main attraction is that it’s been polished to the point of being a product. You know: documentation, multiple file consolidation into a single file, minification, etc.
Here is the new features and improvements list:
Detail view for individual log entries:
The built-in log viewer can show log details in an expanded view.
That’s great for complex logged objects that will be happier formatted as multiple line JSON.
The wiki provides information for users to be proficient with log4js-ext in no time.
This makes using log4js-ext easier as now all that’s needed is to add a single .js and a single .css to use all of log4js-ext.
Besides, minification has reduced size to less than a third of the original size.
Refactored formatters to layouts:
This is to follow log4j naming, a good thing because there is a thousand pages about log4j out there that might be useful in one way or other to log4js-ext users.
Should have zero impact, as I doubt there is anybody out there creating custom formatters/layouts as of version 0.9
Besides, the library passes almost thirty unit tests in the latest Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer, Safari and even Opera versions.
