Another essential SharePoint tool found its way to the chocolatey gallery – this time it’s the awesome and feature-rich SharePointLogViewer.

SharePoint Log Viewer

Key Features:

  • View multiple SharePoint log files at once
  • Search by any field
  • Filter the log by any field
  • File drag & drop support
  • Live monitoring for entire farm
  • Export filtered log entries
  • Bookmark log entries
  • Get popup notification of SharePoint log events from system tray

Installation

After installing chocolatey you can install SharePointLogViewer with one line of Powershell:

cinst SharePointLogViewer

as you can see in this screenshot:

The result is a nice shortcut on your desktop – everything ready to go.

Chocolatey?

Chocolatey NuGet is a Machine Package Manager, somewhat like apt-get, but built with Windows in mind.

In other words: You can install tools/software with this tool.

I wrote several blog posts about this:

  1. Install SharePoint Designer with Chocolatey
  2. Chocolatey and SharePoint
  3. SharePoint Search Query Tool
  4. Install all the great SharePoint Tools with one line of PowerShell

and even created a video:

Do you miss a tool?

If you miss a tool, I would be happy to add it. Please leave a comment.
