# BunyanFormatter

<!-- bunyan_header -->

You probably want:

* documentation on [using the Bunyan

* notes on [writing plugins](
) for the Bunyan logger

* stories about a [lumberjack](

## Summary

This is a library component with a single external function:
`Bunyan.Formatter.compile_format`. If takes a format specification and
returns an anonymous function that will render a log message using that

This formatter is included by default if you include
`Bunyan.Writer.Device` in your application. It is also potentially
useful in other writer plugins, which is why it's in its own module.
