Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-634) need an sprintf implementation in utils
Date Fri, 08 Jun 2012 21:41:24 GMT


Patrick Mueller commented on CB-634:

no, not quite a DUP.  And iOS is not yet using the logger for the console, still using the
old debug console plugin.  Coming soon, so leave this open for now.

> for the new upcoming/enhanced logging and console capabilities, we need to do some sprintf-like
processing.  See [FireBug's console.log() API|]
for the API that we'd like to support.
> Since we will always be dumping just text strings, not HTML, in Cordova loging devices,
it doesn't make too much sense to do the {{%c}} style formatting at all (replace those with
""), and the object hyperlink {{%o}} can be rendered as a {JSON.stringify()} result (as can
{{%d}}, {{%i}}, and {{%f}} - at least as a cheap hack).
> Node.js's {{[util.format()|]}},
which is used by it's {{console.log()}} et al, supports 2 additional formatting chars: {{%j}}
and {{%%}}.  Makes sense to add those ones also.
