NoveLogger uses CocoaPods. It is a dependency manager for Cocoa projects.

To integrate NoveLogger into your Xcode project using CocoaPods, specify it in your Podfile:

source ''

pod 'NoveLogger', '~> 1.0'

Then, run the following command:

$ pod install



Import NoveLogger first:

import NoveLogger

You have 3 ways to log:

// Using static functions (it will use the default logger)
NoveLogger.verbose("Your log message")

// Using the default logger
NoveLogger.defaultLogger.verbose("Your log message")

// Using an instanciated logger
let logger = NoveLogger()
logger.verbose("Your log message")

Here is an exemple of an output:

2019-12-02 15:25:41.031 [VERBOSE] [NoveLoggerTests.swift:42] testSimpleMessage(): Your log message

Log levels

NoveLogger allows 5 log levels:

NoveLogger.verbose("Verbose log.")
NoveLogger.debug("Debug log.")"Info log.")
NoveLogger.warning("Warning log.")
NoveLogger.error("Error log.")

A log will not be outputted if its level is lower than the log level defined in the logger.

let logger = NoveLogger()
logger.logLevel = .info
logger.verbose("This message will not be printed.")
logger.error("This message will be printed.")

When you set the log level of your logger, you can set, from low to high:

.all // Everything will be printed.
.off // Nothing will be printed.

By default, log levels are set as .all in Debug and .warning in Production.

You can override the default logger level by calling (for example):

NoveLogger.defaultLogger.logLevel = .debug


You can use format to include contents into your log:

NoveLogger.verbose("Here is a message containing %d %@.", args: 2, "arguments")

> 2019-12-02 15:25:40.023 [VERBOSE] [NoveLoggerTests.swift:51] testFormat(): Here is a message containing 2 arguments.
