In Setting up your Apps Script Environment for Dogger, I showed how you could set up a mini environment wrapper so you could always use the same back end environment and serve up logging data to external, non apps script clients.
It is possible to use the cDogger library directly instead, which avoids having to set up your own library, but it also needs a little more set up in your script you want to log from.
The steps are
  • Include the necessary library
  • Get a dbabstraction handler for the type of database you want to use
  • Get a dogger handle
  • Start logging
In these examples I’ll show how to get a sheet handler, a parse.com , and a mongolab handler directly, but you can substitute for any other driver if you prefer.

Libraries

The libraries needed for parse.mongolab and sheet demos are
you can get info about them below

Get dbAbstraction handlers

For parse.com (see DriverParse for more info)
for Sheets (see DriverSheet for more info)
For MongoLab (see Driver MongoLab for more info)
Get Dogger handlers

Start Logging

Here’s the simulated workload that’ll be doing the logging

And here’s the output in a sheet

and in the parse.com dashboard

And in the mongolab dashboard

Of course it looks better and more consistent if you use the Multi user apps script logger polymer client, but for that you need to have set up yourDoggerServer as described in Setting up your Apps Script Environment for Dogger
