Structured logs are the greatest thing since sliced bread.
Are you annoyed from having to install
npm just to get a copy of the amazing NodeJS bunyan CLI to pretty-print your logs?
I feel you!
That's why I wrote
bunyan-rs, a Rust port of (a subset of) the original NodeJS bunyan CLI.
cargo install bunyan
You can verify your installation with
bunyan-rs only supports stdin as input source.
You can pipe a log file into it:
cat tests/all/corpus/all.log | bunyan
Or you can pipe the output of a long-running job into it:
# Tail logs from a Docker container docker logs -f my-app | bunyan # Tail logs from a Kubernetes pod using kubectl kubectl logs -f my-app-asdadf-cvcvcv # Tail logs from a group of Kubernetes pods using stern stern "my-app" --output raw --tail 100 | bunyan
Compared to the original
- Only supports
stdinas input source (no files);
- Does not support log snooping via DTrace (
- Does not support the
- Does not support the
- Only supports the
- Only supports UTC format for time.
Some of the above might or might not be added in the future.

You are writing a Rust application and you'd like to emit logs in bunyan format - what can you use?
Check out the following crates:
Speed has never been a burning problem while eyeballing logs from applications, but any speed-up to the tools I use on a daily basis is always appreciated.
bunyan-rs against the original NodeJS
bunyan follow these steps:
cargo build --release
npm. You will need
# bunyan JS time ./benchmark_js.sh benchmark_logs.txt # bunyan-rs time ./benchmark_rs.sh benchmark_logs.txt
On my system
bunyan-rs is roughly 5x faster on this very non-scientific and highly inaccurate benchmark - your mileage may vary.
The Rust code is highly non-optimised (we are allocating freely and wastefully!) - streamlining it could be a fun exercise.
