Tailing log files in eclipse

I used to tail my log files in the console/terminal with “$ tail -f somelog.log”. But this is not really working if you have Eclipse in fullscreen mode (in Mac OS X). I recently stumbled across a very nice plugin, which basically let’s you do the same thing in a “Window-View” just like the Console- or Outline view of Eclipse. The plugin supports also multiple log files, so you can easily switch between a debug an normal log file. Furthermore you can define some rules (word or regex-match) which then can, if they match, change the particular line’s back- and foreground color…  exceptions can’t hide 🙂 To install this extension copy the following URL and go to Eclipse > Help > Install new Software and install the “Log Viewer Feature”. Restart eclipse and open the Log Viewer with Window > Show View > Other > Log Viewer. You then need to add all the log files you want to tail and create your custom rules (see picture for more infos). Please also visit and star this project on it’s Google Code site.

2010 in review

The stats helper monkeys at WordPress.com mulled over how this blog did in 2010, and here’s a high level summary of its overall blog health:

Healthy blog!

The Blog-Health-o-Meter™ reads This blog is on fire!.

Crunchy numbers

A Boeing 747-400 passenger jet can hold 416 passengers. This blog was viewed about 6,900 times in 2010. That’s about 17 full 747s.

In 2010, there were 73 new posts, not bad for the first year! There were 38 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 20mb. That’s about 3 pictures per month.

The busiest day of the year was December 23rd with 110 views. The most popular post that day was iDisk Sync Issue… workaround.

Where did they come from?

The top referring sites in 2010 were discussions.apple.com, facebook.com, discussions.info.apple.com, twitter.com, and en.wordpress.com.

Some visitors came searching, mostly for idisk sync problems, idisk sync, stranger video chat, svn_editor mac, and itunes library on idisk.
