This package is auto-updated.

Last update: 2020-04-22 20:49:52 UTC



Finally a backend module to read from the TYPO3 logging API.

Notice: Currently only log tables are supported for reading. If you need a special log reader (e.g. file or syslog) feel free to contact me or create a pull request with your proposal ;)

Basic Usage

Install via composer

  1. Install it via CLI:

    composer require vertexvaar/logs
  2. Activate via CLI

    ./vendor/bin/typo3 extension:activate logs

Alternatively you can switch to the TYPO3 Extension Manager and activate it there

Install via ExtensionManager

You should really use composer, just sayin'. ;-)

But you can still install the extensions via the TER and the TYPO3 extension manager. Don't forget to activate it afterwards.

Use a download

If you don't want to do cool stuff with composer, you can download this extension as ZIP. Quick links for downloads:

Unzip it in the extension directory and activate it via cli or the TYPO3 Extension Manager.

In depth

The logging API exists for a long time, but there is no nice way to read those logs if the user has no direct access to the database or files.

Backend module created - problem solved!

The ConjunctionReader creates an instance of Reader for each Writer, which reads from the specific location where the writer writes the log entries. Therefore it's possible to read and filter logs accross all log destinations (tables, files, etc.)

TYPO3 & PHP compatibility

The current major version 3.0 requires PHP 7.0 or higher and support TYPO3 version 9 and 10.

For versions supporting older PHP and / or TYPO3 versions please use the previous tags. But keep in mind, that these are not actively supported and you should strongly consider upgrading your TYPO3 installation.


  • Register as devlog
  • Ensure log sources are processed only once
  • Identify and fix that one bug that sometimes won't delete a log entry
  • Add a log writer filter (to deselect log readers/erasers) #4
