What are projects in LogSnag?

Projects are the core of LogSnag. You can think of them as containers for your logs, events, charts and dashboard. You can create as many projects as you want and each project can be used for a different application, environment, or even a different part of your application. Here's how you can create a project:


Click on the + button

The + button is located on the left most sidebar of the dashboard. Clicking on it will open a popup with a form to create a new project.


Name your project

The name of your project can be anything you want. It's just a way to identify your project both in the dashboard and from the API. Just remember that the name of your project must be unique and can't be changed later. In addition, we require your project names to be all lowercase and only container letters, and dashes. For example, my-project is a valid project name but My Project is not.


Open your project

Once you've created your project, you will see a new button on the left sidebar with the first two letters of your project name. For example, if you named your project my-project, you will see a button with my on it. Clicking on this button will open your project.


Add your first log

Now that you've created your project, it's time to add your first log. You can do this by following the instructions in the Getting Started guide.
