Logging in Go (Go )

Logging in Go

Go has a built-in logging library, making it easy for developers to emit basic log messages. To use the standard logging facility of Go, you’ll first need to import the log package. In this example, log.Println writes the string "This is a log message" to the standard error (stderr) along with the timestamp of the event. The log package also provides a log.Fatal, which prints the log messages and terminates the program.

If you want to embed the crumb in an iframe, use the following code:

oEmbed (WordPress)

We support oEmbed, but most sites use allowlisting. On WordPress, oEmbed is supported out of the box, but see the note below.

If you plan to use crumb.sh heavily on Wordpress, you can use the following PHP code to allowlist our site and unlock all the functionalities of our crumbs:
wp_oembed_add_provider( 'https://crumb.sh/*', 'https://crumb.sh/oembed/' );


Embed.ly is a service that allows you to embed content from other sites. We will request to be added to the list of trusted sites once we're out of beta.
