Dancer::Logger - common interface for logging in Dancer


version 1.3202


This module is the wrapper that provides support for different logger engines.


Default engine

The setting logger defines which logger engine to use. If this setting is not set, logging will not be available in the application code.
Dancer comes with the logger engines Dancer::Logger::File and Dancer::Logger::Console, but more are available on the CPAN.


The logger configuration variable tells Dancer which engine to use.
You can change it either in your config.yml file:
    # logging to console
    logger: "console"
Or in the application code:
    # logging to file 
    set logger => 'file';
The log format can also be configured, please see "logger_format" in Dancer::Logger::Abstract for details.


The loggers allow auto-serializing of all inputs:
    debug( 'User credentials: ', \%creds );
Will provide you with an output in a single log message of the string and the reference dump.


This module has been written by Alexis Sukrieh. See the AUTHORS file that comes with this distribution for details.


This module is free software and is released under the same terms as Perl itself.


See Dancer for details about the complete framework.
You can also search the CPAN for existing engines in the Dancer::Logger namespace : <>.
