Logger

Sendbird Chat SDK for JavaScript offers a logging system that allows you to keep track of a number of events and activities including data flow, error, and information while running your application. You can closely monitor the operation of the Sendbird SDK and improve debug efficiency using our logging system.


Log levels

Log levels can be used to categorize and control log outputs. Sendbird Chat SDK for JavaScript has six different log levels with predefined log functions and they can filtered by your browser's Developer Tools.

Logs the general events that take place in the Sendbird SDK, as well as the log messages in WARN and ERROR.
