Log file highlighter.
What we like
Parses log lines to highlight various data formats e.g. dates, IPs, UUIDs, numbers, HTTP methods, etc. Highlighting rules are configurable. Can watch files in a directory and follow files. Uses less as the pager, so supports keyboard navigation, search, and filtering.
What we don't like
Takes a long time to load large logs - more designed for piping/streaming. Doesn’t work on Windows.
Console is the place developers go to find the best tools. Each week, our weekly newsletter picks out the most interesting tools and new releases. We keep track of everything - dev tools, devops, cloud, and APIs - so you don't have to.
