Configuring default logger level

Introduction

A log level is a number that represents the importance of a log message. The higher the number, the more important the log message is. The default log level is Info, which means that all log messages except Trace and Debug are logged.

Since the default level is Info it will skip all the Debug messages which are important for debugging purposes, in particular also during development.

Usage

Default log level can be customized in the logger options of the SapphireClient.

import { LogLevel, SapphireClient } from '@sapphire/framework';const client = new SapphireClient({ logger: { level: LogLevel.Debug } });

The above will set the default log level to Debug which will lead to logging the debug messages in console. This is something which we don't want when application is running in production. To exempt that from logger during production we can configure the logger level dynamically.

Example

import { LogLevel, SapphireClient } from '@sapphire/framework';const client = new SapphireClient({  logger: {    level: process.env.NODE_ENV === 'development' ? LogLevel.Debug : LogLevel.Info  }});

Above example will set the logger level to Debug during development and to Info during production.

caution

Setting logger level to a specific level makes logger ignore the lower logger levels. This means that if level is set to Warn then logger will not log Info log messages.
