Interface Definition

In Hertz, the interfaces Logger, CtxLogger, FormatLogger are defined in pkg/common/hlog, and these interfaces are used to output logs in different ways, and a Control interface is defined to control the logger. If you’d like to inject your own logger implementation, you must implement all the above interfaces (i.e. FullLogger). Hertz already provides a default implementation of FullLogger.

// FullLogger is the combination of Logger, FormatLogger, CtxLogger and Control.
type FullLogger interface {

Note that the default logger makes use of the standard library log.Logger as its underlying output. So the filenames and line numbers shown in the log messages depend on the settings of call depth. Thus wrapping the implementation of hlog may cause inaccuracies for these two values.

Inject your own logger

Hertz provides SetLogger interface to allow injection of your own logger. Besides, SetOutput can be used to redirect the default logger output, and then middlewares and the other components of the framework can use global methods in hlog to output logs. By default, Hertz’s default logger is used.

Supported Log Extension

The log extensions currently supported in the open source version of Hertz are stored in the hertz-logger. You are welcomed to join us in contributing and maintaining for this project.
