What's a good logging package for a Meteor app?

Here’s my wishlist of what I’d like to see:

  • Integrated with a babel plugin that would strip disabled logging statements from the code. That way I could have lots of debug logs in development and not bloat my production code.
  • I’d like some logs to be sent to the server where they can be recorded. Ideally via websocket or some similar async mechanism.
  • Ideally, log recording would be done in batches every few minutes or on page leave (logging on mobile can be a battery-killer if you are constantly pinging the server).
  • Log entries would be JSON objects rather than strings, making it easy to process them later.

Any suggestions?

winston is used a lot in npm and it is what we are using. Supports ability to send to many storage sources including MongoDB, JSON messages, etc.

Nice, that looks a lot like what I am looking for.

Here is a logging and metrics wrapper using winston and papertrail for meteor https://github.com/superlumen/meteor-logging.
