glogg - the fast, smart log explorer

glogg is a multi-platform GUI application to browse and search through long or complex log files. It is designed with programmers and system administrators in mind. glogg can be seen as a graphical, interactive combination of grep and less.

glogg v1.0.2 repackaged for Windows

The previously released v1.0.2 installer for Windows was missing a dll dependency (libwinpthread-1.dll), a new installer (glogg-v1.0.2-1-setup.exe) has been created and is now accessible from the download page.

Apologies for the late fix.

The source code (and thus Linux versions) is unaffected.

glogg version v1.0.2 released

This is a bugfix release focusing on making the following of changing files more reliable. It should now work in most situations though there are still a few cases where glogg might not detect your file has been changed (on Windows).

Please test and report problems.

Main changes from v1.0.1:

  • Completely new code to detect changed file on Linux and Windows.
  • Keep the auto-refreshing search on when a file is truncated.
  • Remember the setting of “auto-refresh” and “ignore case”.
  • Various minor fixes.

Please see the git log at http://github.com/nickbnf/glogg/commits/master for the detailed changelog.

glogg version v1.0.1 released

This is a small bugfix release after the recent version 1.0.0.

Main changes from v1.0.0:

  • Do not load the previous session when starting with a file name (old behaviour can be restored with command line options)
  • Add options to load existing session from the desktop environment on Linux.
  • Load a file in an existing glogg instance on Windows (exiting behaviour but was previously broken).
  • Store and restore window geometry.
  • Add a “close” menu option and common shortcuts to close a tab.

Please see the git log at http://github.com/nickbnf/glogg/commits/master for the detailed changelog.

glogg version v1.0.0 released

5 year after the very first line of code was written, the first stable version is finally here! It has been a long road so far, but let’s hope glogg will be even more useful in the future.

This version introduces multiple files (in tabs) and a number of other improvements upon the old stable v0.9.2.

Main changes from development v0.99.1:

  • Window geometry is now stored and restored once again.
  • Added Firefox-like keyboard shortcuts for tabs.
  • Added a version checker that will inform the Windows user of new versions being available.

Please see the git log at http://github.com/nickbnf/glogg/commits/master for the detailed changelog.

glogg development version v0.99.1 released

This is a further pre-version of v1.0 to be released soon.

It brings some corrections and refinements to the tabbed interface. It still needs a lot of testing so please feel free to comment on the mailing list or raise an issue on GitHub when you experience problems.

Opening a file in an existing instance especially needs some extra testing.

Main changes from v0.99.0:

  • Opening a file now uses an already running instance of glogg if one is present (on Windows and, optionally, Linux).
  • Supports command line options to allow multiple instances (-m) and to ignore the previous session (-s)
  • Attempt to cleanly closes the file in case of memory full condition (instead of crashing!).
  • Add logging capabilities for debugging on Windows.

Please see the git log at http://github.com/nickbnf/glogg/commits/master for the detailed changelog.
