Android Logcat Support in Maia

In Maia you can find a new Android Logcat window that lets you see all log messages and exceptions when you are debugging an Android application.

The Logging level list allows you to select what messages are displayed in console:

  • Verbose — lowest priority, all messages
  • Debug
  • Info
  • Warning
  • Error
  • Fatal
  • Assert — highest priority, assertions only.

Logcat supports stack trace navigation and messages highlighting (you can customize colors for various log levels in the IDE Settings dialog (Ctrl+Alt+S). Note that Logcat is available only in debug mode.

    Yes, definitely it’s better if you can add possibility to see logcat not only in debug.

    Thanks for logcat, just want to point out that it currently doesn’t have horizontal scrolling with trackpad.

  6. Hi,

    Don’t actually own a license of IntelliJ yet, but am planning on getting one.
    Regarding the logcat facility, is there any chance of adding filtering please ?

    I am migrating over from Eclipse and I could do the following;
    Log.i(“MyTag”, “My Message”);
    Then create a filter that showed only logs of MyTag.

    Is this possible in IntelliJ ?
