Glogg is a tool to browse and search through text files. I find it very useful to search in log files, it’s light and fast.

It can also follow a file, so there’s no need to reopen the file or refresh if something changes.

Update 01/2022

It seems glogg’s website is not maintained anymore.

KLOGG is a valid alternative for Linux, Win and Mac.

klogg is designed to:

  • be very fast
  • handle huge log files
  • provide a clear view of the matches even in heavily cluttered files.
