Span Exporter - Standard output

Status: Stable

“Standard output” Span Exporter is a Span Exporter which outputs the spans to stdout/console.

OpenTelemetry SDK authors MAY choose the best idiomatic name for their language. For example, ConsoleExporter, StdoutExporter, StreamExporter, LoggingExporter etc.

If a language provides a mechanism to automatically configure a Span processor to pair with the associated exporter (e.g., using the OTEL_TRACES_EXPORTER environment variable), by default the standard output exporter SHOULD be paired with a simple processor.
