DVFloatingLumberjack is a bridge between DVFloatingWindow and CocoaLumberjack.


To use DVFloatingLumberjack you have to install DVFloatingWindow and CocoaLumberjack first.

There are two possible methods to include DVFloatingWindow in your project:

  1. Using CocoaPods:

    • Add pod entry for DVFloatingLumberjack to your Podfile pod 'DVFloatingLumberjack'
    • Install the pod by running pod install
  2. Manually:

    • Get the latest version
    • Drag files from DVFLoatingLumberjack folder to your project (Check Add to target and Copy items into destination group's folder checkboxes)

Initialize DVLumberjackLogger (perhaps in your AppDelegate file).

#import "DVLumberjackLogger.h"


DVLumberjackLogger *dvLogger = [DVLumberjackLogger new];

// logging all logs to Default logger
[dvLogger attachFloatingLogger:@"Default" toLumberjackLogLevel:LOG_LEVEL_VERBOSE];

[DDLog addLogger:dvLogger];


You can log all errors to separate logger.

// logging all errors to Errors logger
[dvLogger attachFloatingLogger:@"Errors" toLumberjackLogLevel:LOG_LEVEL_ERROR];

CocoaLumberjack's logLevel is a bitmask, created from log flags (there are five of them by default):


You can add any combination of flags and attach log to it.

// only warn logs go here
[dvLogger attachFloatingLogger:@"Warn" toLumberjackLogLevel:LOG_FLAG_WARN];

// this is non-errors logger
[dvLogger attachFloatingLogger:@"Non errors"
          toLumberjackLogLevel:LOG_FLAG_INFO | LOG_FLAG_DEBUG | LOG_FLAG_VERBOSE];

If you want you can dynamically attach and remove log levels to DVFloatingWindow.

- (void)viewWillAppear:(BOOL)animated
    [super viewWillAppear:animated];

    // all logs are related to GalleryController while it's visible
    [dvLogger attachFloatingLogger:@"GalleryController" toLumberjackLogLevel:LOG_LEVEL_INFO];

- (void)viewWillDisappear:(BOOL)animated
    [super viewWillDisappear:animated];

    [dvLogger removeFloatingLogger:@"GalleryController" fromLumberjackLogLevel:LOG_LEVEL_INFO];

Or even attach/remove logs directly from window.

DVButtonAdd(@"Start showing logs", ^{
    [dvLogger attachFloatingLogger:@"Default" toLumberjackLogLevel:LOG_FLAG_VERBOSE];

DVButtonAdd(@"Stop showing logs", ^{
    [dvLogger removeFloatingLogger:@"Default" fromLumberjackLogLevel:LOG_FLAG_VERBOSE];
