Try it FREE

With the Airbrake Rails exception handler, you'll never get stuck again sifting through massive log files to hunt down an error. Instead, get real-time error alerting and instant insight into the line of code that broke, the environment in which the error occurred, and what deploy the error is tied to.

Rails error tracker

The Airbrake Rails exception handler allows you to drill down and understand what’s breaking in your application. Maybe you had a bad deploy? Or a certain library is causing issues? Airbrake’s dashboard gives you general information about your Rails app’s performance, and our detailed stack traces make it simple to drill down and catch troublesome errors.

Airbrake can be used in any Rails project. For Heroku users we offer an add-on. Integrations with job processing libraries are also provided out-of-box. We support:

If the integration you need is missing feel free to ping us about it.

For non-Rails users we offer a Sinatra integration. Plain Ruby scripts are also supported by airbrake-ruby.

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 generate airbrake --api-key your_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.
