Software Libraries

There are a few software libraries that can be used to integrate applications with LogScale from a variety of programming languages.

Attention

Recommended, but not Supported

These software libraries are recommended for use with LogScale but are not supported by LogScale. For support, please contact the corresponding software library community.

If you are looking for a way to send logs and metrics, though, it's usually better to use a log shipper. See the Log Shippers documentation for a list of them. However, if your needs are simple or you want to have a client that uses LogScale's administrative API, below is a list of software libraries for interfacing with LogScale:

Erlang / Elixir

This library implements a Lager backend for logging directly to LogScale in BEAM-based languages such as Erlang or Elixir.

See the Lager backend for LogScale log management system on GitHub for more information.

JS / Browser

You can log JavaScript errors to LogScale using humio.js. It's excellent for embedding in a website and will send any JavaScript errors to a LogScale repository.

NodeJS

The NodeJS library humio-node is a simple client that allows you to send data to LogScale and run queries and aggregations.

Currently humio-node can't run in the browser. If you're looking for a browser integration, check out humio.js above.

Python API Client

If you are using Python in your project, take a look at our Python library on GitHub.

It works as a helpful wrapper around the LogScale web API, supporting many different operations, which include:

  • Querying your LogScale repositories

  • Ingesting data into your LogScale repositories

  • Managing users on your LogScale instance

As is customary for Python packages, the full documentation can be found at readthedocs.
