Making OpenLog entries a bit more lively

I assume you are using the OpenLog project on OpenNTF in most of your projects like I do. And you twist with the SEVERITY options to distinguish the openlog view entries as much as possible. If you feel limited to use one of the three options to get a red + or ++ sign in a column perhaps the emoji-java class is something for you?

Just look at all the available emoji’s and imagine how they could lively up OpenLog!

So what should you do to enable this? Download the emoji library and include them in your code, e.g. an Java agent as an archive:

Then in your code start using them! For example:

will result in something marvelous as:

Happy development 🙂
