Vue.js error handler

You can start reporting errors from your Vue.js app by configuring an errorHandler that uses an AirbrakeClient initialized with your projectId and projectKey.

import AirbrakeClient from 'airbrake-js';

var airbrake = new AirbrakeClient({
  projectId: 1,
  projectKey: 'FIXME'

Vue.config.errorHandler = function (err, vm, info) {
    error: err,
    params: {info: info}
