IGWebLogger allows you to view your iOS app logs over web browser in realtime.

It is a CocoaLumberjack logger which prints log over websocket connection.

Status: Experimental


The best way to use IGWebLogger is via CocoaPods. Add following line in your Podfile:

pod "IGWebLogger", "~> 0.2.0"


First, start the web socket server in AppDelegate.m

- (BOOL)application:(UIApplication *)application didFinishLaunchingWithOptions:(NSDictionary *)launchOptions
  // setup logger
  [DDLog addLogger:[IGWebLogger sharedInstance]];

  // setup HTTP server
  self.httpServer = [IGWebLogger httpServer];
  NSError *error;
  if(![self.httpServer start:&error])
      DDLogError(@"Error starting HTTP Server: %@", error);

  return YES;

Use CocoaLumberjack as usual to add logs.

DDLogError(@"Broken sprocket detected!");
DDLogVerbose(@"User selected file:%@ withSize:%u", filePath, fileSize);

Then connects your browser to http://localhost:8888 to view the logs realtime. (If you run this on real device, replace localhost with the device name such as http://Meteor.local:8888)


  • CocoaLumberjack – A fast & simple, yet powerful & flexible logging framework
  • CocoaHTTPServer – use the HEAD version which has latest WebSocket and ARC supports
