Simple File Logger

A simple file logger for rust.

Very basic setup, just provide an app name and an optional log level.

use simple_file_logger::{init_logger, LogLevel};
use log::info;

fn main() {
    init_logger("my_app", Loglevel::IDK);
    info!("Hello, world!");

The log levels are: trace, debug, (info, IDK), warn, error.

The log file is located:
