Airbrake vs. Raygun

Why do developers use Airbrake instead of Raygun?

There are few things that impact your company's reputation more than the way you respond to a customer complaint. Users expect a good experience and a quick resolution in the event that any do problems occur. When so much is on the line, it's little wonder that leading engineering teams across the globe choose Airbrake for their error monitoring service. Airbrake promptly identifies the problem so that you know what's broken, who it affects, and how to fix it.

Airbrake integrates in minutes and is compatible with every major programming language up and down your stack, including Rails, JavaScript, Node.js, Python, and Ruby. By silently watching your applications and delivering alerts in real-time to all new errors impacting your users, Airbrake provides critical insights into your application's exceptions. From stack traces, to context, to browser breakdown, and more, Airbrake gives you everything you need to assess the scope and determine the root cause of the problem.



In addition, Airbrake provides:

  • A mobile-optimized web app for 24/7 access from anywhere
  • Breadcrumbs to let you see what happened before and after the error
  • Robust, custom filter options to let you see just the errors you want


With deploy tracking, detailed dashboards, and error trends, managing errors has never been easier. And Airbrake lets you know immediately when a new error occurs, whether you use email, Jira, GitHub, Slack, Flowdock, or another communication tool.

Stop searching log files. Let your team get back to building new features instead of chasing down old bugs. Capture and track your application exceptions in a matter of minutes, with Airbrake. Can Raygun do that?

“Airbrake has such an intuitive experience for debugging that it enabled a significantly faster triage process. For a recent issue, I started reading through the git diff (~1000 lines) and spotted the bug within a minute or two. The fix was deployed moments later. All in all it took just 30 minutes from error detection to deployed fix.”

“It wasn’t until we switched to Airbrake that we finally were able to get our exception emails under control. The ability to see your errors in one place, mark them as resolved, and organize them by deploy makes all the difference."
