Six Ways to Make Your Production Logs More Useful

Six Ways to Make Your Production Logs More Useful

  1. Log structured data in a readable format
  2. Add a dash of color
  3. Logs let your app communicate with you and your team
  4. Seriously though, don’t put exception stack traces in your logs!
  5. Log URLs for easy access to more context
  6. Add emotional context to your logs

Most of these are somewhat expected, but I emotional context in logs was definitely new to me. I wonder why I’ve never even thought of this.
