Logfile rotate


#1

Is there a gem that rolls logs for you? if so how and where can I get
it? I have started to write my own, but figured I’d ask.

thx!

Take a look at the “logging” gem. It has a rolling logfile appender –
rotates logfiles after they get (a) too big or (b) too old. If you are
not generating the logfiles from a Ruby app, then that appender is a
good place to steal code from.

There is also a standard Ruby library called Logger which can do that:
