Rails logger default format

Isn’t there supposed to be a timestamp that appears next to log messages by default?

If I tail -f log/development.log, and then send messages to the logger in the rails console: Rails.logger.info 'foobar', it doesn’t seem to include any timestamps or formatting of any kind. I assumed these things would appear automatically. What am I missing?

My understanding is - development environment does’t have timestamps by default. My hosting (heroku) adds timestamps in production.

heroku logs --tail

You can always customize the log_tags for your application and in each environment. I usually add request_id in there, this might be the default now, not sure.
