Entlib Logging for HTML 5 Applications

Topics: General discussion

In ASP.MVC 4 there's a Template that generates Single Page Applications in Browser. Much more code is running in the browser runtime and the need for Tracing and ErrorLogging is higher in these scenarios. Are there any plans to support HTML 5 Applications that are built with the Single Page Pattern?

I would like wish to see a similar support that has been built for Silverlight. Especially a centralized LoggingServices that supports ASP.NET, MVC and WCF and accepts JSON LogEntries. A client side javascript library and configuration would help to generate these messages via ajax and send them asynchronously. I could also think of different TraceListeners like a ConsoleListener that writes to the Browser Debug Console, a HTML 5 Local Storage Listener that uses the new capabilities in modern browsers and a TraceListener that sends messages to the centralized Server.

Any information on future plan would be appreciated

Thanks for posting.  I'm not sure the plan has been formalized as of yet so  I would recommend adding your idea to the UserVoice site for vNext.
