HackSaw: A Log4Net Viewing Tool / News: Recent posts

Status Update

I just wanted to say the project isn't dead, I just haven't had time to do any updates in quite a while due to work. I am planning on cleaning up the interface and leveraging some jQuery and MVC to finally make this a 1.0 application.

The quick start guide was updated a little and added to my blog. You can view that here:

Hacksaw 0.9 Released.

Greetings all!

I know it has been nearly a year, but I've been busy with the day to day things, but have been able to keep Hacksaw running for more UI testing.

Beta 0.9 has a complete UI rewrite to make better use of AJAX, colors, and web page real estate, I've also made it possible to simply type in the path to the log file you wish to load if you just need to "quick load" a log.

Download and enjoy! As always, your comments/suggestions/feedback is ALWAYS appreciated.

HackSaw 0.5 now available.

A few quick updates and HackSaw 0.5 is ready for release. There are a few, but important changes for this version:

* Fixed bug when loading log files of 0 Kb size.
* Added "open" filter option to filter log entries.
* Added ability to change order of folder/log nodes.
* Changed subtitle on manage log sources page to read "Log4Net" instead of "Log4J"

The most notable is the "open" filter option. If you can write WHERE clauses, then you can set the WHERE clause into the filter textbox and it will set the row filter accordingly on the log results grid.... read more

The core package has the necessary ASPX/DLL files if you want to perform a simple install of the application.
