.Net Logger

In a recent small project I needed a logger. I would normally use Log4Net, but I couldn’t get it to work within the allotted 1/2 hour.  Since I chose it because it was easy, I tossed it aside.

I didn’t want the hassle of Enterprise Library and its heavy handed uber configged implementation.

This little logger on CodePlex with the goal of simplicity worked immediately with no trouble.  It’s now my preferred logger for small projects.

  1. Did you try the Trace Listeners built in to .NET?

    System.Diagnostics..::.TextWriterTraceListener
    System.Diagnostics..::.ConsoleTraceListener
    System.Diagnostics..::.DelimitedListTraceListener
    System.Diagnostics..::.EventSchemaTraceListener
    System.Diagnostics..::.XmlWriterTraceListener

    I use the XmlWriterTraceListener, and have had no problems with it so far…

    • I like to use a library that has at least a little more functionality, but I’ll keep this in mind.

  2. I find log4net pretty easy to use, there is really no config to get up and running quickly.

    • That was my experience till now too. I probably did something wrong.
