Serilog.Settings.Reloader provides completely reloadable settings for Serilog.


SwitchableLogger is assigned with new root ILogger when configuration is modified.

// Create switchable
SwitchableLogger switchableLogger = new SwitchableLogger();
// Assign SwitchableLogger to Serilog.Log.Logger
Serilog.Log.Logger = switchableLogger;

// Assign logger to switchableLogger
switchableLogger.Logger = new Serilog.LoggerConfiguration()
        .WriteTo.Console(outputTemplate: "[{Timestamp:HH:mm:ss} {Level:u3} {SourceContext}] {Message:lj}{NewLine}{Exception}")

// Create logger
ILogger logger = Serilog.Log.ForContext<Program>();

// Write
logger.Information("Hello World");

// Reconfigure 
ILogger newLogger = new Serilog.LoggerConfiguration()
        .WriteTo.Console(outputTemplate: "[{SourceContext}] {Message:lj}{NewLine}{Exception}")
// Assign new logger
switchableLogger.Set(newLogger, disposePrev: true);

// Write with the previous logger instance, but with different settings
logger.Information("Hello world again");

.AddSerilogConfigurationLoader() can be used with dependency injection's ILoggingBuilder.

// Create switchable logger
SwitchableLogger switchableLogger = new SwitchableLogger();

// Read configuration
IConfigurationRoot configuration = new ConfigurationBuilder()

// Service collection
IServiceCollection serviceCollection = new ServiceCollection()
    .AddLogging(loggingBuilder =>
            .AddSerilog(switchableLogger, true)
            .AddSerilogConfigurationLoader(configuration, switchableLogger)

// Services
using (var services = serviceCollection.BuildServiceProvider())
    // Create logger
    Microsoft.Extensions.Logging.ILogger logger = services.GetService<Microsoft.Extensions.Logging.ILogger<Program>>();

    // Write
    logger.LogInformation("Hello World");

    // Modify config
    config.Set("Serilog:WriteTo:0:Args:OutputTemplate", "[{SourceContext}] {Message:lj}{NewLine}{Exception}");

    // Write with the previous logger instance, but with different settings
    logger.LogInformation("Hello world again");

.AddSerilogConfigurationLoader(IConfiguration, SwitchableLogger, Func<IConfiguration, ILogger>) third argument specifies load function.

    .AddSerilog(switchableLogger, true)
    .AddSerilogConfigurationLoader(configuration, switchableLogger, 
        c => new Serilog.LoggerConfiguration().ReadFrom.Configuration(c).CreateLogger())
