Pclog is the ProgClub event logger. That's the software we use to log errors that occur in our software so that we can fix them! In addition to the logging components are reporting components. For other projects see projects.


We use semantic versioning. Latest production version: unreleased. Latest development version: 0.3.0.

See tasks for work that still needs to be done.


Why this software? The services facilitated by this software allow us to gather detailed error information when problems occur in our production systems. Collecting such information and knowing about problems is the first step in solving the issues.

There aren't any downloads yet because we're still under development on our 0.3 version. When we release 1.0 we will (hopefully!) provide tarball packages. Stay tuned.
