I’m currently developing a node.js based application and I need to deploy it on a cluster where I can’t obtain console logs from. While I develop and test on my local computer, there are always things that can go wrong on the cluster (for example caused by differences in software versions).

So I quickly threw some components together that allowed me to follow my node.js app logs in real time. Nothing special at all, but possibly interesting for someone who wants to do the same.
