Zettelstore supports various levels of logging output. This allows you to see the inner workings of Zettelstore, or to avoid it.
Each level has an associated name and number. A lower number signals more logging output.
|Trace||1||Show most of the inner workings|
|Debug||2||Show many internal values that might be interesting for a Zettelstore developer.|
|Sense||3||Display sensing events, which are not essential information.|
|Info||4||Display information about an event. In most cases, there is no required action expected from you.|
|Warn||5||Show a warning, i.e. an event that might become an error or more. Mostly invalid data.|
|Error||6||Notify about an error, which was handled automatically. Something is broken. User intervention is not required, in most cases. Monitor the application.|
|Fatal||7||Notify about a significant error that cannot be handled automatically. At least some important functionality is disabled.|
|Panic||8||The application is in an uncertain state and notifies you about its panic. At least some part of the application is possibly restarted.|
|Mandatory||9||Important message will be shown, e.g. the Zettelstore version at startup time.|
|Disabled||10||No messages will be shown|
If you set the logging level to a certain value, only messages with the same or higher numerical value will be shown. E.g. if you set the logging level to
messages are shown, butwarn
, andmandatory"" messages.
