It's better than bad, it's good!
I work in environments with heaps of console spam, making it annoying to find my own logs in the haystack. This package lets you prefix all your logs with a stylish identifying string without changing the function signature of your console methods.
CD into your project folder and install the package.
npm install itslog --save
Require the Package
Now that you've installed the package, you've got to require it in your code. You can do that like this:
import itslog from 'itslog';
const itslog = require('itslog');
For browser people with no build system, this package creates a global variable called ItsLog if no other module loading system is available. Oh, you can also use AMD. I'm not gonna put an example here, you get the point. It's a UMD module with a global as a backup.
const console = itslog('test'); // Simple methods. console.count('count'); console.log('log'); console.info('error'); console.info('info'); console.warn('warn'); // Complex methods. console.assert(someVar === someOtherVar, 'log'); console.dir(obj); console.dirxml(obj); console.group(someVar); console.groupCollapsed(someVar); console.groupEnd(someVar); console.table(["let's", "make", "a", "table"]); console.trace(someVar);
Simple methods will prepend your prefix to the arguments. Complex methods will log your prefix and then invoke whatever function you really wanted to call. This is because a random string at the beginning of, say, a table doesn't make any sense.
