Web-Based Tool to Format and Filter Logcats

If you’ve ever pulled a logcat to help a developer find and fix an issue, you might have done so in one of several ways. There are numerous applications out there that allow you to generate logs quickly, easily, and usually with some degree of formatting and/or filtering. However, log files exported from Catlog, which seems to be a popular choice for people sending logs to developers, aren’t always easy to look at and sift through—especially for those who may not have a great deal of experience.

It’s for this very reason that XDA Forum Member Bikonja put together a simple web-based tool that takes a raw logcat and automatically adds formatting, highlighting, and filtering. Simply paste the text and select the desired options to reformat and filter as required. The tool is currently set to expect logs from Catlog but as Bikonja himself says,

It’s purely Javascript (with jQuery) and CSS based so it’s even easy to pick up the source and modify (I’ve conveniently put all the CSS and JS within the div with the id “content.”

This should make it fairly simple for somebody to adapt to handle a wider range of input if needed. Check out the forum thread for more information and a link to the tool itself.

Dual Boot on Android: A Power User’s Holy Grail?

Many of you probably dual-boot your personal computers, be it to run Linux alongside Windows or because you have a Mac and hate OS X. On a computer platform, the process can be a life-saver for a variety of reasons, particularly software compatibility/integration. It’s not rare to see computer programmers with Linux partitions or Mac gamers that use bootcamp for their videogames. On computers, the process has gotten relatively simpler over time, with Microsoft and Apple typically supporting the notion....

Chrome 42: Narrowing the Gap Between Web & Native Apps

Websites have typically been less desirable than native apps, due to being unoptimized for mobile screens, responsiveness issues or simply not being able to provide all the features you might desire.
