I’ve mentioned a number of libraries for improved logging statements most recently XCGLogger which makes it easy to create log statements with more additional details created for Swift projects.

Here’s a library called XLFacility providing a drop in replacement of NSLog with a number of added features from Pierre-Olivier Latour.

Some of the features of XLFacility include:

Viewing of logging messages in real-time via Telnet or TCP
An HTTP server for viewing real-time log messagess and browsing past logging messages
Different logging levels, and macros for easy logging at each level
Customizable logging formats
An in-app logging overlay that can appear when messages are sent to XLFacility
A nice syntax for creating your own custom loggers

With XLFacility you can log to the console, a file, a SQLite database, and you can also view messages in realt-time via Telnet or TCP and there is a built-in http server so you can browse past log messages or see live updates.

You can find XLFacility on Github here.

A nice logging library with some great features.
