# Logging


You can know what's happening in your Wolff project using the Logging class.

The methods of the Logging class can be called anywhere inside your Wolff project.


The logging files are located by default in the system/logs folder.

Every logging file represents a day and contains logs with the format [date][ip] [level]: [message].


These are the available logging methods:

$log->emergency($msg, $values = []);
$log->alert($msg, $values = []);
$log->critial($msg, $values = []);
$log->error($msg, $values = []);
$log->warning($msg, $values = []);
$log->notice($msg, $values = []);
$log->info($msg, $values = []);
$log->debug($msg, $values = []);

The same example showed below can be applied to the other methods.

$log = new Log();
$log->info('Welcome to Wolff.');

That will log the message 'Welcome to Wolff' as an info.


The methods to logging data can take an optional second parameter which is an associative array with values to interpolate in the string.

The values to interpolate must be between curly brackets like {this}.

$log->debug('The user is {name} in the page {page}', [
    'name' => 'Thomas',
    'page' => 'home/',

As an example, that should log The user is Thomas in the page home/.
