Have you ever found yourself sifting through massive log files to hunt down an error? Airbrake Flask exception handling software provides notifications to make Flask debugging easy.

With Airbrake Flask you receive real-time error alerts and instant insight into the line of code that broke, the deploy the error is tied to, and the environment in which the error occured. Airbrake's detailed dashboard makes it easy to determine the total number of Flask errors, as well as the number of bugs you've had since your last deploy.

Airbrake's at-a-glance insight into the health of your code helps you:

  • Monitor code quality - detailed dashboards, deploy trends, and error tracking make managing and triaging errors simple
  • Fix bugs faster - identify, assess, and resolve errors quickly with stacktraces, parameters, and affected users
  • Improve team productivity - custom workflow integrations make it easy to collaborate on, prioritize, and triage errors

Airbrake sends you and error message immediately — 24 hours/day, 7 days/week — if a new error happens, whether you communicate in email, Slack, Github, or some other tool. And installing Airbrake in your Flask application takes no more than three minutes, so you can start capturing exceptions immediately.
