Crate ng_log [] [src]

ngLog processing utilities.

ngLog is a textual file format designed for recording gameplay events. Each line of text in an ngLog-formatted file represents an event, consisting of several parameters in the following order, each separated by an ASCII TAB control code:

  • A timestamp: a floating-point number representing the time in seconds that have elapsed since gameplay began;
  • An optional event class, describing the category to which the event belongs;
  • An event ID, describing the type of event which occurred;
  • Zero or more event parameters, each representing an arbitrary data point associated with the event.

ngLog was used in conjunction with ngStats and ngWorldStats to provide both local and online statistical analysis and tracking. Supported video games would create two copies of an ngLog file upon gameplay completion: a copy for local processing, and an encoded copy to be sent to a world server. This crate provides functionality for processing both forms, from either a String or a type that implements std::io::Read. For example:

use ng_log::NgLog;

use std::fs::OpenOptions;
use std::io::Read;
use std::string::ToString;

let mut file = OpenOptions::new()
let log = NgLog::local_from_reader(&mut file).unwrap();
println!("{}", log.to_string());
