A minimalist, simple PSR-3 logger implementation which logs to a POSIX syslog.


This class requires PHP 5.4 or later, but we recommend using the latest available version of PHP as a matter of principle. It has two dependencies, the FIG PSR-3 interface, linked above, and IcecaveStudios/isolater which is used to isolate global functions to make them more easily tested.

It is installable and autoloadable via Composer as cxj/phpsyslog from Packagist.

Alternatively, download a releasefrom GitHub, or clone this repository. Then require or include its autoload.php file.


This class attempts to comply with PSR-1, PSR-2, and PSR-4. If you notice compliance oversights, please send a patch via pull request.

This package is unit tested using PHPUnit.


Example usage:


$ident = basename($argv[0]);

$logger = new Cxj\Logger($ident, Psr\Log\LogLevel::WARNING);

// Will be logged.
$logger->alert("This is an alert level message.");    

// Not logged because lower level than default WARNING level set in constructor.
$logger->debug("This is a debug level message.");     



Pull requests are welcome!

Requests which follow the PSR-1 and PSR-2 coding and style standards, and which have PHPUnit test coverage will get most attention.
