New! Powerful Ruby and Rails error tracking with RaygunPosted Jul 31, 2013 | 2 min. (391 words)
Got some massive developments on the provider front this week- Raygun now has class-leading support for Ruby and Rails! I’m proud to announce the release of the Raygun4Ruby provider, which brings easy and powerful Ruby and Rails error tracking to Raygun.
The Ruby ecosystem has been hugely popular for a while now, and for good reason. The language has some great features, and when paired with the Rails framework, it’s an excellent choice when developing a next-gen web application.
Automatically report and track errors your app generates
One of the most important tasks when creating a web app is knowing how it is behaving for your users. Errors can suddenly spike, or you could be using a third-party library that’s ruining your app’s performance. Raygun provides a solution to this problem, which is why we’re so excited to bring this to the Ruby ecosystem.
Rails error tracking, or just plain Ruby
Raygun supports both! If you’re using the Rails framework to develop a web app, you can add error tracking by typing one line. The provider comes as a ruby gem and is easily installed using the popular bundler tool. The provider supports Rails versions 3 and 4, and is ready to add to your project now.
Fancy classic Ruby? That’s supported too! Call one method in a rescue block and you can send the exception to Raygun.
Resque Error Tracking
Using Resque? Raygun4Ruby includes a failure backend out-of-the-box. All job failures are automatically sent to Raygun. Easy!
View error reports with the beautiful dashboard and email alerts
A flood of error notifications isn’t any good unless you can make sense of the data. Raygun presents this in an easily digestible format with charts and statistics, and intelligently groups the errors by type.
Raygun displays many details about the error, including stack trace, request data, client and server environment details and heaps more.
