A first-class monitoring platform for JavaScript

Honeybadger simplifies your production stack by combining three common types of monitoring into a single, easy to use platform:

Error Monitoring

Delight your users by proactively fixing front-end and back-end application errors.

Uptime Monitoring

Know when your APIs are down or are having problems due to external issues.

Check-In Monitoring

Know when your scheduled tasks and background jobs go missing or silently fail.

Honeybadger supports these front-end frameworks:

  • React
  • Vue.js
  • Angular
  • Artboard 5®

...and these backends:

  • Node.js
  • Python
  • Ruby
  • Elixir
  • Java

Getting started is easy

First, grab a copy of honeybadger.js:

<script src="//js.honeybadger.io/v2.2/honeybadger.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

Then, configure your Honeybadger API key:

Honeybadger.configure({ apiKey: 'project api key' });

That's it! Check out the Honeybadger JS docs for more info.

Fix errors before your users can report them

How your users experience your app failing is a huge opportunity for you to create a positive interaction with them, and turn annoyance into admiration. Honeybadger customers routinely surprise and delight their users by fixing errors before they have a chance to complain.

Honeybadger provides all the context you need to understand what is causing each exception, who's affected by it, and makes it easy to follow up with those users once the fix has been deployed.

Trace errors back to the source

Breadcrumbs are the user events that lead up to an error. Honeybadger automatically records client-side and server-side breadcrumbbreadcrumbs as users interact with your application and sends them along when an error occurs.

Used an error tracking service in the past?

Honeybadger is different—we go beyond errors to give you full confidence in the health of your production systems. See how we compare to the following services:

Respond instantly when bad things happen

Whether it's a single user experiencing a single error, or your site is down for everyone, Honeybadger instantly notifies you when something is wrong.

Reason
Expected 2xx status code -- got 502

With built-in uptime monitoring, you'll be the first to know when:

  • AWS/Google Cloud Platform/Azure/et al. have issues
  • SSL/TLS certificates expire
  • Web servers crash
  • ...and the list goes on...

Honeybadger's notification system integrates with all of your favorite services including chat systems like Slack and Google Hangouts, alert platforms like PagerDuty and OpsGenie, and monitoring platforms like DataDog and VictorOps.

Never miss another silent failure

Remember the last time the monthly backup failed, a critical email wasn't sent, or some customers didn't get billed? Honeybadger monitors your critical background jobs and services to make sure they check in when they should.

> 1 week ago 1 minute ago

With Honeybadger, you'll have a different check-in for each scheduled task, queue, or any other type of background job in your Laravel application, ensuring that each piece of work runs on time.

Iterate faster through collaboration

Do you ever find yourself digging through chat logs to find a solution that your coworker told you about last month? Honeybadger's built-in issue tracker keeps discussion central to each error, so that if it pops up again you'll be able to pick up right where you left off.

This appears to happen on every deploy.

Honeybadger also integrates with all of the project management tools you already use, such as GitHub Issues, Jira, Pivotal Tracker, and more. With issue automation, Honeybadger can even create and update issues automatically as they are fixed.

Understand your app's health

Get a high-level view of your application's health with hotspot detection, affected user reports, weekly summary emails, and more.

Save time on administration

With everything in one place, spend less time managing team access and configuring alerts. Honeybadger consolidates the management of 3 tools into one, reducing your administrative overhead by 2/3—that really adds up!
