ECS loggers are formatter/encoder plugins for your favorite logging libraries. They make it easy to format your logs into ECS-compatible JSON.

The encoder logs in JSON format, relying on the default zapcore/json_encoder when possible. It also handles the logging of error fields in ECS error format.

By default, the following fields are added:

  "log.level": "info",
  "@timestamp": "2020-09-13T10:48:03.000Z",
  "message":" some logging info",
  "ecs.version": "1.6.0"
