Monolog is a logging library. It is extremely powerful and most of the time only a tiny subset of its features are actually used. Just to mention a few extra features:
This time I had the need to write to a custom log file, but with the additional constraint that the file name was not known until runtime. That’s because the log is related to an import process which is generated as a new entity before being actualy executed.
On the Symfony Cookbook there is already a recipe about using different log files but it relies on a configuration made before the execution.
After a little experimenting, here’s the simple solution I implemented:
$logger = new Logger('import');
$logger->pushHandler(new StreamHandler($kernelRootDir . '/logs/' . $runtimeGeneratedId.'.import.log', Logger::DEBUG));
As you can see, Monolog is not only powerful but easy to use, too!
