Project goals

This project acts as an umbrella project to collect all Logging concerns in TYPO3. It aims to:
  • streamline them into on single logging API,
  • optimize/redesign the user interface of the Log module,
  • create and maintain suitable documentation for the different target groups,
  • cleanup logging configuration,
  • support the community.

What has been done so far?

  • New Logging API has been developed and released with TYPO3 CMS 6.0
  • Documentation of the new Logging API has been written and published.

What's missing?

  • Replace the old log functions and calls in the core with the new Logging API
  • Decouple sys_log from sys_history
  • Enhance the usability of the BE log module
  • Provide a migration path for log records from the old sys_log.
  • Provide more practical documentation,like configuration examples, best practices...


Latest development / code in git repository
