Wraps any standard Logger object to provide tagging capabilities.

May be called with a block:

logger = ActiveSupport::TaggedLogging.new(Logger.new(STDOUT))
logger.tagged('BCX') { logger.info 'Stuff' }                            # Logs "[BCX] Stuff"
logger.tagged('BCX', "Jason") { logger.info 'Stuff' }                   # Logs "[BCX] [Jason] Stuff"
logger.tagged('BCX') { logger.tagged('Jason') { logger.info 'Stuff' } } # Logs "[BCX] [Jason] Stuff"

If called without a block, a new logger will be returned with applied tags:

logger = ActiveSupport::TaggedLogging.new(Logger.new(STDOUT))
logger.tagged("BCX").info "Stuff"                 # Logs "[BCX] Stuff"
logger.tagged("BCX", "Jason").info "Stuff"        # Logs "[BCX] [Jason] Stuff"
logger.tagged("BCX").tagged("Jason").info "Stuff" # Logs "[BCX] [Jason] Stuff"

This is used by the default Rails.logger as configured by Railties to make it easy to stamp log lines with subdomains, request ids, and anything else to aid debugging of multi-user production applications.
