logdog: Why use Eclipse when you can not use Eclipse?

16 Feb 2013


If only to annoy other Android developers, here at Foxdog Studios we do everything using Vim and the command line. This means that you don't get all the nice tools that Google have provided in their Eclipse plug-in. Most notably, you don't get the logcat viewer. So, we've rolled our own more powerful logcat viewer: logdog.

Let's say I wanted to see and save all log enteries saying that the Dalvik VM has freed more than 100K. Easy, just

$ logdog -it dalvikvm -im 'freed \d{3,}K' -o device.log

Check out the code on GitHub, stop using Eclipse and start annoying people.
