BlackBerry WebWorks Application Logging

I am developing a blackberry OS webworks application and I need to get log messages( I am using console.info("some string") ) output in a file on the device whenever I run my application.



I am using IBM Worklight framework.

Re: BlackBerry WebWorks Application Logging

You can use the HTML5 API to create a file and write to it when you call console.info()


In fact, if you google for an example that does that, I am pretty sure that I saw one somewhere. It might have been on HTML5rocks.com, but it's been a while.


We've got a sample on this page that shows you how to read a file using the HTML5 API, and it can be altered to write fairly easily.
