A drop-in replacement for Go’s log package with a few enhancements

The golog package is a fork of Go’s log package. It is functionally identical to Go’s log package which makes it a drop-in replacement with a few added features. The New method is variadic so it can be called using zero to four arguments; the optional fourth argument will set the logging level. The New method accepts a filename as the first argument. Also, the Printf method accepts a logging level parameter.

Example:

logger = golog.New("/tmp/mylog.log")
logger.Printf("Hello file")
// outputs to file: 2017-11-11 01:23:45 Hello file
