# Logging

MadelineProto provides a unified class for logging messages to the logging destination defined in settings.

Use the settings to modify the default logging destination and log verbosity:

# $settings['logger']

Logger settings

# $settings['logger']['logger']

Default: \danog\MadelineProto\Logger::ECHO_LOGGER if running from CLI, \danog\MadelineProto\Logger::FILE_LOGGER if running from browser
Description: logger mode, available logger modes:

# $settings['logger']['param']

Default: __DIR__.'/Madeline.log'
Description: optional logger parameter, for modes that require it

# $settings['logger']['logger_level']

Default: \danog\MadelineProto\Logger::VERBOSE
Description: What logger messages to show

# Example:

use danog\MadelineProto\Logger;

$settings = [
    'logger' => [
        'logger_level' => Logger::VERBOSE,
        //'logger' => Logger::ECHO_LOGGER // Can be omitted to use default values
$MadelineProto = new \danog\MadelineProto\API('session.madeline', $settings);

Note: when running from web, MadelineProto will also automatically enable logging of PHP errors (not MadelineProto logs) to MadelineProto.log, located in the same directory as the script that loaded MadelineProto.

# Usage:

$MadelineProto->logger($message, $level);

$message is a string, an integer, an array, or any json-encodable object.
$level (optional) is one of the following constants:

By default, $level is \danog\MadelineProto\Logger::NOTICE.

# Error reporting

MadelineProto now can report errors automatically to the bot admin.
Simply use the following method:

// $message = (string) $exception, for example

This will automatically report the error (and send the logfile!) to the bot admin, set using the setReportPeers method:


OR using the getReportPeers method of the event handler.

     * Get peer(s) where to report errors
     * @return int|string|array
    public function getReportPeers()
        return [self::ADMIN];

If you use the startAndLoop method to start update handling, all errors surfacing from the loop will be reported automatically.
