Winston has its own console transport. But if you'll try to use it in the browser, you will find out its inconvenience. You can't access native browser console levels (ex. verbose), so it is impossible to filter those levels using the browser console.


Platform Status

To use library you need to have node and npm installed in your machine:

  • node >=10
  • npm >=6

Package is continuously tested on darwin, linux, win32 platforms. All active and maintenance LTS node releases are supported.


To install the library, run the following command:

npm i --save winston-console-transport


To use new transport, just add it to the transports option of your winston logger.

import { createLogger } from 'winston';
import Console from 'winston-console-transport';

const logger = createLogger({
    level      : 'debug',
    transports : [ new Console() ]

logger.verbose('VERBOSE TEXT');


Some attributes can be passed to new Console({})

  • name - name of a transport (default 'console')
  • eol - end of line (default os.EOL)
  • logger - custom logger (default console)
  • levels - custom level handlers (default {})
  • fallBackLogger - default level handler (default console.log)
  • sanitizer - input data sanitizer and transformator (default data => data)
  • maxListeners - max number of listeners (default 30)
