Tpfs Logger Port

This is a Ports and Adapters-based implementation of structured logging for Transparent Systems.

The tpfs-logger-port crate represents the Ports definition for the logger.

This interface is designed for maximal ease-of-use by the end-user (the developer doing the logging) , providing both synchronous and asyncronous logging capability, and a very simple log() method requiring only a severity and an event. Note the end-user will have to define any events of interest as tpfs_logger::Serialize to interact with this logger library.

Publishing of Prerelease Crates

Please see the versioning guidelines to understand prereleases:

You should use prereleases to test out a concept in a different crate. However this is not intended for your final releases. See Publishing changes to a crate for finalizing.

You can manually push a prerelease version for a branch by finding the corresponding pipeline in gitlab and clicking the play button next to the manual-publish-prerelease-crate job. Prerelease crates will also be automatically published as merges occur to master.

Publishing a version change to a crate

The versioning of the crate should be maintained via semantic versioning and there are helper scripts to help update the version in the Cargo.toml and Cargo.lock files. This version change can happen on your branch hopefully right before the MR is approved to be merged.

Use one of the following:

  • cargo make publish-patch
  • cargo make publish-minor
  • cargo make publish-major

In order to actually publish the change this should be done after an MR has merged to master. Once merged pull from master and rebase then tag a release using the script helper.

It would look like the following:

git checkout master
git pull
cargo make tag-release
git push --tags

Understanding Semantic Versioning

We have something written up in our engineering guidelines:

The basics of semver is if the only changes included are fixes and adjustments then it's just a patch version number bump. Then if there are additions to functionality it's a minor version bump, and if it's a breaking change then it's a major number bump. The precendence is set at if there's a major version bump for a breaking change it would encompass any additional functionality without needed to bump the minor version. The same is true for minor version bumps that take priority over a patch version bump.

An example of that would be if the version number is 1.0.0 and there was additional functionality along with some fixes this would update the version to 1.1.0.
