Using Logger.info and Logger.debug in ExUnit tests

By default in the test env, Phoenix doesn't show Logger.debug/Logger.info outputs in the console.

Table of contents

    Logger provides 4 printing levels:

    • info (allows errors, warns, debugs, infos)
    • debug (allows errors, warns, debugs)
    • warn (allows errors, warns)
    • error (allows errors)

    By default the :warn level is turned on. It means that only Logger.warn and Logger.error is printed to the output.

    If you'd like to use another two, go to your config/test.exs file and you'll probably see:

    # Print only warnings and errors during test
    config :logger, level: :warn

    Just change the line to the proper level (:debug or :info), and you're ready to go:

    # Print all (errors, warnings, debugs and infos) during tests
    config :logger, level: :info

    Elixir Trickery: Using Macros and Metaprogramming Without Superpowers

    There's hardly any more misunderstood element of Elixir than its metaprogramming power. The way to understand it is actually not to try too hard to wrap your head around it.

    Elixir is a language heavily relying on its macro mechanism, which is both powerful and limited, and both complicated and simple, at the same time. The good news is that when you get to know the simple part about it, it's very easy to start writing macros even if you're a complete noob - and I'm going to give you plenty of examples to demonstrate that.
