React JSX Question

Console logging for react?

I'm super new to React and I'm trying to get it set up for Meteor and piecing stuff together from other sources too. One of these other sources set up console logging for the app, but I'm going the ES6/JSX way so just using their code wouldn't work for me (or it doesn't seem like it does).

Some code I found for logging is

import Logger from 'simple-console-logger';
Logger.configure({level: 'debug'});


but I'm seeing this error
cannot find module './dumy'

I also tried using
react-logger
and
react-console-logger
to no avail. Here's my code for the latter, which I believe should work.

import {Logger, ConsoleLogger} from 'react-console-logger';
const myLogger = new Logger();
export default class App extends Component {
render() {
myLogger.info('something witty');
}
}


However,
myLogger.info('...')
is making a call to
node_modules/react-console-logger/lib/Logger.js
which has it defined as

picture of code since copy-paste doesn't work

And
this.logger
is undefined, although I see it be defined above?

Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong? It looks to me like the library has it wrong, but maybe it has something to do with me using JSX files instead of js?

Answer

If you're just after console logging here's what I'd do:

export default class App extends Component {
  componentDidMount() {
    console.log('I was triggered during componentDidMount')
  }

  render() {
    console.log('I was triggered during render')
    return ( 
      <div> I am the App component </div>
    )
  }
}

Shouldn't be any need for those packages just to do console logging.
