An alternative debug view for gyscos/cursive using emabee/flexi_logger

This project provides a new debug view for gyscos/cursive using the emabee/flexi_logger crate. This enables the FlexiLoggerView to respect the RUST_LOG environment variable as well as the flexi_logger configuration file. Have a look at the demo below to see how it looks.

Simply add to your Cargo.toml

Using the FlexiLoggerView

To create a FlexiLoggerView you first have to register the cursive_flexi_logger as a LogTarget in flexi_logger. After the flexi_logger has started, you may create a FlexiLoggerView instance and add it to cursive.

use cursive::Cursive;
use cursive_flexi_logger_view::FlexiLoggerView;
use flexi_logger::{Logger, LogTarget};

fn main() {
    // we need to initialize cursive first, as the cursive-flexi-logger
    // needs a cursive callback sink to notify cursive about screen refreshs
    // when a new log message arrives
    let mut siv = Cursive::default();

        .expect("failed to initialize logger!");

    siv.add_layer(FlexiLoggerView::scrollable()); // omit `scrollable` to remove scrollbars

    log::info!("test log message");

Look into the documentation for a detailed explanation on the API.
