Logging Query Language (LQL) – a DSL for Log Analytics

LQL came about because of a log analytics platform that I developed for Vueling Airlines. Being a backend developer and a self-confessed newbie at front end (HTML, CSS and Javascript), I originally created LQL in order to avoid having to develop complex front end code for generating queries. I decided that instead I would create a Domain Specific Language (DSL) that would allow users to write the queries and all I would need to provide was a text area.
