@untool/info is a core mixin providing output for untool's command line interface. Besides that, it allows other mixins to define pre-flight checks that are run during application startup.


$ yarn add @untool/info # OR npm install @untool/info


@untool/info does not define any commands of its own, but only adds some global CLI flags to control console output. Using the flags -v/--verbose and -q/--quiet once or multiple times, you can de- and increase the log output. Default log level is info, passing a single -q will reduce it to warning while a single -v will bump it to verbose. Passing -qqq will silence all output completely.

Log Levels

  error: 0,
  warning: 1,
  info: 2,
  verbose: 3,

Additionally, you can pass --color/--no-color flags to manually enable or disable output colors, but you can usually rely on @untool/info to determine color support automatically.
$ un start -v --no-color


@untool/info exposes a couple of utility mixin hooks other mixins can implement.

getLogger() (callable)

This utility hook defined by @untool/info provides other mixins with a fully configured logger instance. This logger has three standard log methods (info, warning and error) that correspond to the lower three log levels described above. Additionally, it supports arbitrary log methods (e.g. request, hint, foo)
const { Mixin } = require('@untool/core');

module.exports = class FooMixin extends Mixin {
  bar() {
    if (typeof this.getLogger === 'function') {
      const logger = this.getLogger();
      logger.info('this will log an info message');
      logger.warning('this will log a warning message');
      logger.error('this will log an error message');
      logger.baz('this will log a verbose message');
      logger.qux('this will log a verbose message, too');

diagnose(doctor) (parallel)

By implementing this method, your core mixin can perform pre-flight checks during application startup and return an array of warnings. If you need to do something asynchronous at this point, just return a Promise.
const { Mixin } = require('@untool/core');

module.exports = class FooMixin extends Mixin {
  diagnose(doctor) {
    if (1 + 1 !== 2) {
      return ['Math is broken.'];

Additionally, you can use the helper methods defined on our semi-private doctor object that is being passed into this hook.
