For an in-depth look at all of Logging's APIs, check out the Logging API docs.


This package is included with Vapor and exported by default. You will have access to all Logging APIs when you import Vapor.

The Logging module, part of the larger Vapor Console package, can also be used on its own with any Swift project.

To include it in your package, add the following to your Package.swift file.

// swift-tools-version:4.0
import PackageDescription

let package = Package(
    name: "Project",
    dependencies: [
        /// 💻 APIs for creating interactive CLI tools.
        .package(url: "", from: "3.0.0"),
    targets: [
      .target(name: "Project", dependencies: ["Logging", ... ])

Use import Logging to access the APIs.
