Display your application logs in a TextArea or LoggingPanel in the front-end of your app.

NOTE: This addon is experimental at this point and works only with Log4J.

Implementation

  1. Pick a component, LoggingPanel or LoggingArea;
  2. Construct the component and add it to your layout;
  3. Edit your Log4j2.xml configuration file: Make sure to update the packages attribute and create your custom appenders and loggers like in the example provided.

Sample code

VerticalLayout layout = new VerticalLayout();
        Button btnTestLog = new Button("TEST LOG");
        btnTestLog.addClickListener(l -> {
            LOGGER.debug("Test log output...");
            LOGGER.warn("Test log output...");
            LOGGER.error("Test log output...");
            LOGGER.info("Test log output...");
            LOGGER.fatal("Test log output...");
        });
        LoggingPanel loggingPanel = new LoggingPanel("Log output");
        loggingPanel.setHeight(250, Unit.PIXELS);
        LoggingArea loggingArea = new LoggingArea("Log output");
        loggingArea.setSizeFull();
        layout.addComponents(btnTestLog, loggingPanel);
        layout.addComponentsAndExpand(loggingArea);
.log {
    .info {
      color: greenyellow;
      white-space: normal;
    }

    .debug {
      color: teal;
      white-space: normal;
    }

    .warn {
      color: yellow;
      white-space: normal;
    }

    .error {
      color: red;
      white-space: normal;
