Rails Error Monitoring

Get a Handle on Errors With Airbrake Rail

How to install Airbrake to capture Rails errors

Installing Airbrake in your Ruby app takes no more than 3 minutes:

  1. Create an Airbrake account
  2. Add the Airbrake gem to your Gemfile:
    gem 'airbrake'

    Then from your project's RAILS_ROOT, and in your development environment, run:

    bundle install
    rails g airbrake your_project_id_here your_api_key_here

    The generator creates a file under config/initializers/airbrake.rb configuring Airbrake with your API key. This file should be checked into your version control system so that it is deployed to your staging and production environments.

Full instructions can be found on airbrake GitHub repository.
