Welcome to LoggingSlack – a logging backend for SwiftLog that sends critical log messages to Slack.


Setup Incoming Webhooks

LoggingSlack uses Incoming Webhooks to send log messages to a Slack channel.

Once you've setup Incoming Webhooks, you should have a webhook URL that you can use to configure LoggingSlack.

Bootstrap SwiftLog

LoggingSlack is intended to be used as a secondary logging backend to send critical log messages directly to Slack.

You can use SwiftLog's MultiplexLogHandler to setup LoggingSlack with another logging backend.

import Logging
import LoggingSlack

let webhookURL = URL(string: "https://hooks.slack.com/services/T1MGQL1L8/RM2LE5QLF/YH036NhldqitdR1lVd5NLS6z")!

LoggingSystem.bootstrap { label in
        // Setup SlackLogHandler with a webhook URL 
        SlackLogHandler(label: label, webhookURL: webhookURL),
        // Setup the standard logging backend to enable console logging
        StreamLogHandler.standardOutput(label: label)

Using a Logger

You can now use SwiftLog as usual and critical log messages are sent directly to Slack.

import Logging

let logger = Logger(label: "com.example.ExampleApp.main")

logger.critical("Something went wrong!")


This will output a Slack message and a console message since both logging backends were setup.

2020-02-15T19:30:00-0800 critical: Something went wrong!

Log Level Thresehold

Only critical log level messages are sent to Slack by default.

You can adjust the log level threshold by changing the globalLogLevelThreshold static property on SlackLogHandler.

For example, this will configure LoggingSlack to send all error log level and above messages to Slack.

SlackLogHandler.globalLogLevelThreshold = .error
