Webapp for looking at and searching through log files

Project description


This project is in maintenance mode. Please consider using the new tailon, which is currently under slow, but steady development. The new version comes with the following improvements:

  • Fully self-contained executables. Just download (or build) and run.
  • Tiny footprint - the tailon executable sits at 2.5MB in size and uses roughly 10MB of RSS.
  • More responsive user-interface.

While some features are missing, it is already usable to a large degree.


Tailon is a self-hosted web application for looking at and searching through log files. It is little more than a fancy web wrapper around the following commands:

tail -f
tail -f | grep
tail -f | awk
tail -f | sed
