Timber SQL Logger

Log to a sql database for debugging. View the logs in-app with the LogViewerActivity.

This library was created when I decided that having my phone attached to logcat for hours in hopes a heisenbug would appear in a service was too inefficient.

Works with API level 11+

Usage

Logging is done manually by wait of...

    LogEntry entry = LogEntry.createLogEntry(Log.DEBUG, TAG, "Hit critical function");
    LogEntryProvider.insertLogEntry(context, entry);

...or you can plant a tree with Timber using SQLLoggingTree:

public class App extends Application {

    // The default tag is used when no tag is provided.
 private static final String DEFAULT_TAG = "TimberSqlSampleApp";

 @Override
 public void onCreate() {
     LogEntryProvider.initialize(this);
  Timber.plant(new SqlLoggingTree(this, DEFAULT_TAG));
 }
}

Setup

In your app's AndroidManifest, you will need to include two items:

<activity
    android:name="io.explod.android.sqllog.ui.activity.LogViewerActivity"
    android:exported="false"/>

<!-- Important: set your own authority name and provide that name in the metadata -->

<provider
    android:name="io.explod.android.sqllog.data.LogEntryProvider"
    android:authorities="your.authority.name"
    android:exported="false"/>

<meta-data android:name="io.explod.sqllog.log.authority" android:value="your.authority.name"/>

And finally, to view the logs, you start the activity:

 private void goToLogViewer() {
  Intent intent = new Intent(this, LogViewerActivity.class);
  startActivity(intent);
 }
