Download precompiled Logdy binary
Enter release page on Github and select recent release. Download a precompiled binary.
# Example URL address
More compliation target
You can find more precompiled libraries on the Github release page. We always always build for the following OS and architecture: linux/amd64 windows/386 windows/amd64 darwin/amd64 darwin/arm64 linux/arm64
Add Logdy to PATH for easier use
Refer to this How to
To illustrate this example, we're going to use Node.js.
# Assuming logdy is added to PATH
$ node app.js | logdy
Enter Logdy web UI
Visit the address provided in the console output after starting Logdy, by default it should be http://localhost:8080
Display columns and filters
Logdy makes parsing and column selection a breeze. Use a built in "autogenerate" feature to generate columns based on JSON object present. Then you can make any adjustments and customizations. Based on the columns you can also emit facets or use another great feature to generate those automatically.
