    $ yg apache_commbined_log

parse Apache Error logs, show logs vertically with labels of element

    $ yg -p apache-error apache_error_log

parse TAB-delimited logs, show logs vertically

    $ yg --tab tab_delimited_log

parse TAB-delimited logs, show logs vertically with number labels

    $ yg --tab -n tab_delimited_log

parse SPACE-delimited logs, show logs vertically

    $ yg --space space_delimited_log

    $ yg --ltsv ltsv_log

tailed log

    $ tail -f apache_commbined_log | yg


C<yg> is a log viewer(filter) to show log lines vertically.

When you check apache logs, I guess you do like this

    $ cat apache_log - - [30/Sep/2012:12:34:56 +0900] "GET /foo HTTP/1.0" 200 123 "http://example.com/foo" "Mozilla/5.0" - - [30/Sep/2012:12:34:57 +0900] "GET /bar HTTP/1.0" 301 124 "http://example.com/bar" "Mozilla/5.1"

If you use C<yg>, log lines are showed like below:

    $ yg apache_log
    ******************** 1 ********************
        Ident: -
     Authuser: -
         Date: 30/Sep/2012:12:34:56 +0900
      Request: GET /foo HTTP/1.0
       Status: 200
        Bytes: 123
      Referer: http://example.com/foo
    UserAgent: Mozilla/5.0

    ******************** 2 ********************
        Ident: -
     Authuser: -
         Date: 30/Sep/2012:12:34:57 +0900
      Request: GET /bar HTTP/1.0
       Status: 200
        Bytes: 124
      Referer: http://example.com/bar
    UserAgent: Mozilla/5.1

easier for understanding.

Of course, C<yg> can work for like below.

    $ cat apache_log | yg

C<yg> command supports few formats of log. And you can write custom parser of L<App::YG>.

=head2 PARSERS

Above sample uses L<App::YG::Apache::Combined>. It is default parser. If you want to view other format logs, you should specify C<--parser> option.

    $ cat apache-error-log | yg --parser apache-error

Then C<yg> uses L<App::YG::Apache::Error> to parse log lines.

    $ cat apache-error-log | yg --parser apache-error
    ******************** 1 ********************
         Date: Sat Oct 06 17:34:17 2012
    Log_Level: error
      Message: File does not exist: /var/www/html/favicon.ico

App::YG has below parsers.

=over 2

=item App::YG::Apache::Combined

for apache combined log

=item App::YG::Apache::Common

for apache common log

=item App::YG::Apache::Error

for apache error log

=item App::YG::Nginx::Main

for nginx main log



L<App::YG> is designed to be easily extensible. You might want to write a custom log parser. Each parser is easy to write one.

For example:

    package App::YG::MyApp::Log;
    use strict;
    use warnings;

    sub parse {
        my $line = shift;

        $line =~ m!^DATE:([^\t]+)\t([^\t]+)\tMSG:(.+)$! or warn "failed to parse line: '$line'\n";

        return [
            $1 || '',
            $2 || '',
            $3 || '',

    sub labels {
        return [qw/

Parser class must have 2 methods C<parser> and C<labels>. Both methods must return array reference. Let's look at the anatomy of App::YG::* modules. And check test codes in F<t/parser/*/*.t>.
