You are so simply the best mate!!! And that’s very motivating that you could already find use for it.
You just became the official first adopter lol.
Thanks and let’s keep at it.

You keep at it mate!

Remember, take your time, don't rush it. Anything worth doing is worth doing well.


Catch you later.


Incidentally, when I first took a quick look at the dotLog code I did'nt have much time, but I noticed within the .describe method you were mapping over the testSet array and also that testSet contained objects with two properties label and rule; but still the "penny had not dropped" (ie. I had not got that aha moment). When I looked again at dotLog, some hours later, I then found your .png file(console-test-call.png) and instantly new what was going on.

Now, I'm just telling you this so that you know how important the example you provided in console-test-call.png was to understanding your code.

I think that, for me atleast, was something worth remembering.

Hey Ady,

Just thought I'd give you a heads up on a new log function I propose for dotLog. It basically addresses the issue of logging to nodejs. ie. after the environment that dotLog is running in has been detected, it selects the correct syntax for console.log in node or browser.

I've put it up on repl.it just for a quick preview.


cheers :-)

Great I think we have similar ideas on that. I looked at a package called colors yesterday for the node side of things. The next step was to find a way to detect the environment and to do the appropriate output.
I’m glad you beat me to it 😀

Yes, I saw the colors package, but thought it might be a case of a "sledgehammer to crack a nut"; so decided not to. However, Ady, dotLog is your project and of course you should always have the final say since only you know which way you want to take it.


No no it's not mine it's open source lol :) The best approach should prevail. I like the simplicity of what you have put together. When I did my initial research colors was the first option that came up. The idea will be to have something as lean as possible.
Please feel free to suggest alternatives and may the one that makes most sense win. It will be of great benefit if you feel entirely enabled to make or suggest whatever you see fit. Cheers :)
