Log-symbols is a powerful node package that provides colored symbols for various log levels. It's an ideal addition to your developer toolkit if you're looking to streamline your console logging with aesthetic and meaningful symbols. The symbols deliver an intuitive way to indicate info, success, warning, or error logs. A special aspect of log-symbols is the inclusion of fallbacks for Windows CMD to cater to its limited character set.
Using log-symbols is quite straightforward. After successfully installing the package using
import logSymbols from 'log-symbols'; console.log(logSymbols.success, 'Finished successfully!');
On terminals with Unicode support, this will yield a tick symbol with the message "Finished successfully!". For terminals not supporting Unicode, an equivalent visual will be displayed.
The documentation for log-symbols can be found directly in the README file of the package's GitHub repository. It gives valuable insights into how to install and use the package, along with enumerating the different symbols available.
