.Net Library Documentation

To simplify adding JustLog.IT logging into your .Net application. This library supportsany type of .NET application (web, web api, desktop application, windows service, etc.)

Getting Started

Follow these steps to get our .Net library installed and running in your application.

1. Install the .NET library
Install-Package JustLogIT.Logging.Library
Visual Studio NuGet Package Manager. Search for JustLogIT
2. Set your logging token in the app or web.config files
<appSettings>
   <add key="JustLogItToken" value="[your token]" />
</appSettings>

The following methods are all found in the JustLogIt.Nuget.Library namespace.

How it Works

The .NET library is written to be as non-intrusive as possible for your code. When you call a logging method the libraryadds the object into a queue. There is a background thread running which processes queue items. This allows your logging actions to happen as rapidly as possible, not bogging down any other actions your application is performing.

The communication with the JustLog.IT logging endpoints (REST-ful API) uses the HttpClient object found in theSystem.Net.Http assembly.
