Logging, as it applies to errors has been partially discussed on the Error custom functions & error source management page. However; this page is being created to discuss logging in a general sense, as it applies to the applications we write using FileMaker.

You can download a file from my temporary GitHub project that  that contains a proposed logging implementation. This is still a work in progress, but the basic concept is there.


I propose that the Modular FileMaker format be used for creating a logging system. A (rough) An example of this can be found in the GitHub project. Using the approach in the sample file, multiple "log writers" could be created for writing the log data to a different destination (memory, file, external system, etc.).
