NAME

Plack::Middleware::AccessLog - Logs requests like Apache's log format

SYNOPSIS

  # in app.psgi
  use Plack::Builder;

  builder {
      enable "Plack::Middleware::AccessLog", format => "combined";
      $app;
  };

DESCRIPTION

Plack::Middleware::AccessLog forwards the request to the given app and logs request and response details to the logger callback. The format can be specified using Apache-like format strings (or combined or common for the default formats). If none is specified combined is used.

This middleware uses calculable content-length by checking body type, and can not log the time taken to serve requests. It also logs the request before the response is actually sent to the client. Use Plack::Middleware::AccessLog::Timed if you want to log details after the response is transmitted (more like a real web server) to the client.

This middleware is enabled by default when you run plackup as a default development environment.

CONFIGURATION

format
  enable "Plack::Middleware::AccessLog",
      format => "%h %l %u %t \"%r\" %>s %b \"%{Referer}i\" \"%{User-agent}i\"";

Takes a format string (or a preset template combined or custom) to specify the log format. This middleware implements subset of Apache's LogFormat templates.

logger
  my $logger = Log::Dispatch->new(...);
  enable "Plack::Middleware::AccessLog",
      logger => sub { $logger->log(debug => @_) };

Sets a callback to print log message to. It prints to psgi.errors output stream by default.
