Logrus :walrus: Build Status GoDoc

Logrus is a structured logger for Go (golang), completely API compatible with the standard library logger.

Logrus is in maintenance-mode. We will not be introducing new features. It's simply too hard to do in a way that won't break many people's projects, which is the last thing you want from your Logging library (again...).

This does not mean Logrus is dead. Logrus will continue to be maintained for security, (backwards compatible) bug fixes, and performance (where we are limited by the interface).

I believe Logrus' biggest contribution is to have played a part in today's widespread use of structured logging in Golang. There doesn't seem to be a reason to do a major, breaking iteration into Logrus V2, since the fantastic Go community has built those independently. Many fantastic alternatives have sprung up. Logrus would look like those, had it been re-designed with what we know about structured logging in Go today. Check out, for example, Zerolog, Zap, and Apex.

Seeing weird case-sensitive problems? It's in the past been possible to import Logrus as both upper- and lower-case. Due to the Go package environment, this caused issues in the community and we needed a standard. Some environments experienced problems with the upper-case variant, so the lower-case was decided. Everything using logrus will need to use the lower-case: Any package that isn't, should be changed.

To fix Glide, see these comments. For an in-depth explanation of the casing issue, see this comment.

Nicely color-coded in development (when a TTY is attached, otherwise just plain text):


With log.SetFormatter(&log.JSONFormatter{}), for easy parsing by logstash or Splunk:

{"animal":"walrus","level":"info","msg":"A group of walrus emerges from the
ocean","size":10,"time":"2014-03-10 19:57:38.562264131 -0400 EDT"}

{"level":"warning","msg":"The group's number increased tremendously!",
"number":122,"omg":true,"time":"2014-03-10 19:57:38.562471297 -0400 EDT"}

{"animal":"walrus","level":"info","msg":"A giant walrus appears!",
"size":10,"time":"2014-03-10 19:57:38.562500591 -0400 EDT"}

{"animal":"walrus","level":"info","msg":"Tremendously sized cow enters the ocean.",
"size":9,"time":"2014-03-10 19:57:38.562527896 -0400 EDT"}

{"level":"fatal","msg":"The ice breaks!","number":100,"omg":true,
"time":"2014-03-10 19:57:38.562543128 -0400 EDT"}

With the default log.SetFormatter(&log.TextFormatter{}) when a TTY is not attached, the output is compatible with the logfmt format:

time="2015-03-26T01:27:38-04:00" level=debug msg="Started observing beach" animal=walrus number=8
time="2015-03-26T01:27:38-04:00" level=info msg="A group of walrus emerges from the ocean" animal=walrus size=10
time="2015-03-26T01:27:38-04:00" level=warning msg="The group's number increased tremendously!" number=122 omg=true
time="2015-03-26T01:27:38-04:00" level=debug msg="Temperature changes" temperature=-4
time="2015-03-26T01:27:38-04:00" level=panic msg="It's over 9000!" animal=orca size=9009
time="2015-03-26T01:27:38-04:00" level=fatal msg="The ice breaks!" err=&{0x2082280c0 map[animal:orca size:9009] 2015-03-26 01:27:38.441574009 -0400 EDT panic It's over 9000!} number=100 omg=true

To ensure this behaviour even if a TTY is attached, set your formatter as follows:

		DisableColors: true,
		FullTimestamp: true,

Logging Method Name

If you wish to add the calling method as a field, instruct the logger via:


This adds the caller as 'method' like so:

{"animal":"penguin","level":"fatal","method":"","msg":"a penguin swims by",
"time":"2014-03-10 19:57:38.562543129 -0400 EDT"}
time="2015-03-26T01:27:38-04:00" level=fatal msg="a penguin swims by" animal=penguin

Note that this does add measurable overhead - the cost will depend on the version of Go, but is between 20 and 40% in recent tests with 1.6 and 1.7. You can validate this in your environment via benchmarks:

go test -bench=.*CallerTracing


The organization's name was changed to lower-case--and this will not be changed back. If you are getting import conflicts due to case sensitivity, please use the lower-case import:


The simplest way to use Logrus is simply the package-level exported logger:

package main

import (
  log ""

func main() {
    "animal": "walrus",
  }).Info("A walrus appears")

Note that it's completely api-compatible with the stdlib logger, so you can replace your log imports everywhere with log "" and you'll now have the flexibility of Logrus. You can customize it all you want:

package main

import (
  log ""

func init() {
  // Log as JSON instead of the default ASCII formatter.

  // Output to stdout instead of the default stderr
  // Can be any io.Writer, see below for File example

  // Only log the warning severity or above.

func main() {
    "animal": "walrus",
    "size":   10,
  }).Info("A group of walrus emerges from the ocean")

    "omg":    true,
    "number": 122,
  }).Warn("The group's number increased tremendously!")

    "omg":    true,
    "number": 100,
  }).Fatal("The ice breaks!")

  // A common pattern is to re-use fields between logging statements by re-using
  // the logrus.Entry returned from WithFields()
  contextLogger := log.WithFields(log.Fields{
    "common": "this is a common field",
    "other": "I also should be logged always",

  contextLogger.Info("I'll be logged with common and other field")
  contextLogger.Info("Me too")

For more advanced usage such as logging to multiple locations from the same application, you can also create an instance of the logrus Logger:

package main

import (

// Create a new instance of the logger. You can have any number of instances.
var log = logrus.New()

func main() {
  // The API for setting attributes is a little different than the package level
  // exported logger. See Godoc.
  log.Out = os.Stdout

  // You could set this to any `io.Writer` such as a file
  // file, err := os.OpenFile("logrus.log", os.O_CREATE|os.O_WRONLY|os.O_APPEND, 0666)
  // if err == nil {
  //  log.Out = file
  // } else {
  //  log.Info("Failed to log to file, using default stderr")
  // }

    "animal": "walrus",
    "size":   10,
  }).Info("A group of walrus emerges from the ocean")


Logrus encourages careful, structured logging through logging fields instead of long, unparseable error messages. For example, instead of: log.Fatalf("Failed to send event %s to topic %s with key %d"), you should log the much more discoverable:

  "event": event,
  "topic": topic,
  "key": key,
}).Fatal("Failed to send event")

We've found this API forces you to think about logging in a way that produces much more useful logging messages. We've been in countless situations where just a single added field to a log statement that was already there would've saved us hours. The WithFields call is optional.

In general, with Logrus using any of the printf-family functions should be seen as a hint you should add a field, however, you can still use the printf-family functions with Logrus.

Default Fields

Often it's helpful to have fields always attached to log statements in an application or parts of one. For example, you may want to always log the request_id and user_ip in the context of a request. Instead of writing log.WithFields(log.Fields{"request_id": request_id, "user_ip": user_ip}) on every line, you can create a logrus.Entry to pass around instead:

requestLogger := log.WithFields(log.Fields{"request_id": request_id, "user_ip": user_ip})
requestLogger.Info("something happened on that request") # will log request_id and user_ip
requestLogger.Warn("something not great happened")


You can add hooks for logging levels. For example to send errors to an exception tracking service on Error, Fatal and Panic, info to StatsD or log to multiple places simultaneously, e.g. syslog.

Logrus comes with built-in hooks. Add those, or your custom hook, in init:

import (
  log ""
  "" // the package is named "airbrake"
  logrus_syslog ""

func init() {

  // Use the Airbrake hook to report errors that have Error severity or above to
  // an exception tracker. You can create custom hooks, see the Hooks section.
  log.AddHook(airbrake.NewHook(123, "xyz", "production"))

  hook, err := logrus_syslog.NewSyslogHook("udp", "localhost:514", syslog.LOG_INFO, "")
  if err != nil {
    log.Error("Unable to connect to local syslog daemon")
  } else {

Note: Syslog hook also support connecting to local syslog (Ex. "/dev/log" or "/var/run/syslog" or "/var/run/log"). For the detail, please check the syslog hook README.

A list of currently known service hooks can be found in this wiki page

Level logging

Logrus has seven logging levels: Trace, Debug, Info, Warning, Error, Fatal and Panic.

log.Trace("Something very low level.")
log.Debug("Useful debugging information.")
log.Info("Something noteworthy happened!")
log.Warn("You should probably take a look at this.")
log.Error("Something failed but I'm not quitting.")
// Calls os.Exit(1) after logging
// Calls panic() after logging
log.Panic("I'm bailing.")

You can set the logging level on a Logger, then it will only log entries with that severity or anything above it:

// Will log anything that is info or above (warn, error, fatal, panic). Default.

It may be useful to set log.Level = logrus.DebugLevel in a debug or verbose environment if your application has that.


Besides the fields added with WithField or WithFields some fields are automatically added to all logging events:

  1. time. The timestamp when the entry was created.
  2. msg. The logging message passed to {Info,Warn,Error,Fatal,Panic} after the AddFields call. E.g. Failed to send event.
  3. level. The logging level. E.g. info.


Logrus has no notion of environment.

If you wish for hooks and formatters to only be used in specific environments, you should handle that yourself. For example, if your application has a global variable Environment, which is a string representation of the environment you could do:

import (
  log ""

init() {
  // do something here to set environment depending on an environment variable
  // or command-line flag
  if Environment == "production" {
  } else {
    // The TextFormatter is default, you don't actually have to do this.

This configuration is how logrus was intended to be used, but JSON in production is mostly only useful if you do log aggregation with tools like Splunk or Logstash.


The built-in logging formatters are:

  • logrus.TextFormatter. Logs the event in colors if stdout is a tty, otherwise without colors.
    • Note: to force colored output when there is no TTY, set the ForceColors field to true. To force no colored output even if there is a TTY set the DisableColors field to true. For Windows, see
    • When colors are enabled, levels are truncated to 4 characters by default. To disable truncation set the DisableLevelTruncation field to true.
    • When outputting to a TTY, it's often helpful to visually scan down a column where all the levels are the same width. Setting the PadLevelText field to true enables this behavior, by adding padding to the level text.
    • All options are listed in the generated docs.
  • logrus.JSONFormatter. Logs fields as JSON.

Third party logging formatters:

You can define your formatter by implementing the Formatter interface, requiring a Format method. Format takes an *Entry. entry.Data is a Fields type (map[string]interface{}) with all your fields as well as the default ones (see Entries section above):

type MyJSONFormatter struct {


func (f *MyJSONFormatter) Format(entry *Entry) ([]byte, error) {
  // Note this doesn't include Time, Level and Message which are available on
  // the Entry. Consult `godoc` on information about those fields or read the
  // source of the official loggers.
  serialized, err := json.Marshal(entry.Data)
    if err != nil {
      return nil, fmt.Errorf("Failed to marshal fields to JSON, %w", err)
  return append(serialized, '\n'), nil

Logger as an io.Writer

Logrus can be transformed into an io.Writer. That writer is the end of an io.Pipe and it is your responsibility to close it.

w := logger.Writer()
defer w.Close()

srv := http.Server{
    // create a stdlib log.Logger that writes to
    // logrus.Logger.
    ErrorLog: log.New(w, "", 0),

Each line written to that writer will be printed the usual way, using formatters and hooks. The level for those entries is info.

This means that we can override the standard library logger easily:

logger := logrus.New()
logger.Formatter = &logrus.JSONFormatter{}

// Use logrus for standard log output
// Note that `log` here references stdlib's log
// Not logrus imported under the name `log`.


Log rotation is not provided with Logrus. Log rotation should be done by an external program (like logrotate(8)) that can compress and delete old log entries. It should not be a feature of the application-level logger.


Tool Description
Logrus Mate Logrus mate is a tool for Logrus to manage loggers, you can initial logger's level, hook and formatter by config file, the logger will be generated with different configs in different environments.
Logrus Viper Helper An Helper around Logrus to wrap with spf13/Viper to load configuration with fangs! And to simplify Logrus configuration use some behavior of Logrus Mate. sample


Logrus has a built in facility for asserting the presence of log messages. This is implemented through the test hook and provides:

  • decorators for existing logger (test.NewLocal and test.NewGlobal) which basically just adds the test hook
  • a test logger (test.NewNullLogger) that just records log messages (and does not output any):

func TestSomething(t*testing.T){
  logger, hook := test.NewNullLogger()

  assert.Equal(t, 1, len(hook.Entries))
  assert.Equal(t, logrus.ErrorLevel, hook.LastEntry().Level)
  assert.Equal(t, "Helloerror", hook.LastEntry().Message)

  assert.Nil(t, hook.LastEntry())

Fatal handlers

Logrus can register one or more functions that will be called when any fatal level message is logged. The registered handlers will be executed before logrus performs an os.Exit(1). This behavior may be helpful if callers need to gracefully shutdown. Unlike a panic("Something went wrong...") call which can be intercepted with a deferred recover a call to os.Exit(1) can not be intercepted.

handler := func() {
  // gracefully shutdown something...

Thread safety

By default, Logger is protected by a mutex for concurrent writes. The mutex is held when calling hooks and writing logs. If you are sure such locking is not needed, you can call logger.SetNoLock() to disable the locking.

Situation when locking is not needed includes:

  • You have no hooks registered, or hooks calling is already thread-safe.

  • Writing to logger.Out is already thread-safe, for example:

    1. logger.Out is protected by locks.

    2. logger.Out is an os.File handler opened with O_APPEND flag, and every write is smaller than 4k. (This allows multi-thread/multi-process writing)

    Both stdlib package log and many other logging frameworks are supporting this (e.g. Am I missing how to enable it or is it not supported?

    Case change breaks builds?

    Not sure what's started to happen, but overnight our builds have started to break:

    can't load package: package case-insensitive import collision: "" and ""

    I wonder if it's the case change from S to s in the github username of the account. Even if we change the import path to use the lowercase version, dependencies that use the uppercase version that are not under our control seem to need updating too.

    Vendoring the lib doesn;t seem to work either, as the log.WithFields seems to self referential, but maybe I was too hasty in dismissing vendoring:

    ./api.go:124: cannot use "".Fields literal (type "".Fields) as type "".Fields in argument to log.WithFields

    [Maintenance] The Gofrs would like to adopt logrus

    Hi @sirupsen,

    A few of us over in the Go community have started a bit of a working group to share the work of maintaining projects that are extremely important to the Go ecosystem. It goes without saying, logrus is absolutely one of those.

    We've opened up a way for the community to suggest projects to adopt and logrus was one of them (

    I wanted to reach out to see what your preference is for a team like The Gofrs taking over this project. Because this repo is on your personal GitHub account, and not an organization, it seems like we may be fairly limited in the type of shared responsibility we can take on. There are currently 20 members in the organization, so as a first step we could maybe add myself and a few others as collaborators so that we can share the load.

    Beyond that, in the interest of full transparency, we may need to consider migrating the project to an organization to allowed richer management of collaborators. That said we can cross that bridge when we get to it.

    Cheers! -Tim

    Adding File, Line, Stacktrace

    This is just an initial approach to get the ball rolling in reference to #63 that I implemented last night really quickly.

    Idea: Customize JSONFormatter's JSON encoder?

    I have a use case for being able to customize the json encoder that the JSONFormatter uses. I hoped that the code would support a pluggable Encoder interface but unfortunately it does not. I know I could write my own Formatter but I'd like to re-use the logic already in JSONFormatter. A few ideas:

    Idea 1 : Add a new optional Encoder field to JSONFormatter. The code would go from:

    encoder := json.NewEncoder(b)
    if f.PrettyPrint {
    	encoder.SetIndent("", "  ")


    encoder := f.Encoder
    if encoder == nil {
    	encoder = json.NewEncoder(b)
    	if f.PrettyPrint {
    		encoder.SetIndent("", "  ")

    The doc for the JSONFormatter struct would be updated to call out that if Encoder is set then DisableHTMLEscape and PrettyPrint are ignored (set them on the encoder itself).

    Idea 2 : We break out the logic in JSONFormatter and move it to a reusable NormalizeEntryForFormat function in formatter.go and then introduce a new formatter, the EncodingFormatter that takes the Encoder from Idea 1 but does include the ignore struct values mentioned. JSONFormatter remains the same (without the Encoder field). Both new formatters use the new NormalizeEntryForFormat helper. We could choose to export NormalizeEntryForFormat or not.
