Mixlib::Log provides a mixin for enabling a class based logger object, a-la Merb, Chef, and Nanite. To use it:

require 'mixlib/log' class Log extend Mixlib::Log end You can then do:

Log.debug(“foo”) Log.info(“bar”) Log.warn(“baz”) Log.error(“baz”) Log.fatal(“wewt”) By default, Mixlib::Logger logs to STDOUT. To alter this, you should call Log.init, passing any arguments to the standard Ruby Logger. For example:

Log.init(“/tmp/logfile”) # log to /tmp/logfile Log.init(“/tmp/logfile”, 7) # log to /tmp/logfile, rotate every day Enjoy!
