Elixir's new Unified Logger
Episode 149 of Thinking Elixir. Hauleth (Łukasz Jan Niemier) takes us deeper into the Elixir and Erlang loggers. He recently closed a 3.5 year old bug on the ElixirLang Github project by unifying the Elixir logger with the logger that Erlang got in OTP 21. We touch on the history, why it took so long, what we should think of the new logging levels, and what the original goals were that he set out to achieve. We also get an introduction to the new logging filters and handlers along with some peeks into future Erlang logging features that may still be yet to come in Elixir!
