PSR-3 Usage

PHPDebugConsole includes a PSR-3 implementation (which can be used as a monolog PSR handler). If you're using a application or library that uses these standards, drop PHPDebugConsole right in.

(this library includes neither psr/log or monolog/monolog. Include separately if needed.)


// instantiate PHPDebugLogger / get instance
$debug = \bdk\Debug::getInstance();
$psr3logger = $debug->logger;
$psr3logger->emergency('fallen and can\'t get up');


$monolog = new \Monolog\Logger('myApplication');
$monolog->pushHandler(new \bdk\Debug\Collector\MonologHandler($debug));
$monolog->critical('all your base are belong to them');
