Plugin to color the log output in message window.

Is there any plugin around to color the log output in message window? For
example it would color all the occurrences of DEBUG in gray, WARNING in
yellow and ERROR in red etc. Better yet it could be configured using regexp.
If there isn't one around I would like to take a shot at it. If you have any
idea, suggestion or pointers, I would appriciate if you can share that.
Please post any input you might have.

Thanks in advance

Look at the log4monitor plugin (http://www.intellij.org/twiki/bin/view/Main/LogMonitorPlugin). It uses the log4j chainsaw gui to display in a nice colorized table output. Might be too heavy for what you need though.

Is log4monitor still working with IDEA 3.0.3?

A colleague of mine tried it and apparently it was
not working anymore.

Thanks,
Marius

Thanks for the insightful reply. I haven't used LogTailer but I will
definitly check it out. Meanwhile I will put a request for exposing message
window in Open API and a feture request to add primitive coloring support in
the message window.

I haven't use this plugin in a while (switch to the LogTailer instead, as
I am sure you have too). I just threw that out just in case but I do not
know if it is dead of alive.
The OpenAPI does not expose the message window to my knowledge. This would
be a good request though. I would love to have something like you describe.

used chainsaw before and found that its pretty heavy. Does OpenAPI expose
message window or any of the logging mechanism? I looked at the API docs and
coudn't find anything. Anyone ?
