You could say that we have a soft spot for Rails at Honeybadger; in fact, Rails is central to our origin story. We're proud members of the Ruby community, and it's our privilege to support RubyGems.org, Ruby Together, and open source.

Honeybadger simplifies your production stack by combining three common types of monitoring into a single, easy to use platform for Rails:
Delight your users by proactively monitoring for and fixing application errors.
Know when your app is down or is having problems due to external issues.
Know when your scheduled tasks and background jobs go missing or silently fail.
In most Rails apps, installing Honeybadger is just a few terminal commands:
$ bundle add honeybadger $ bundle exec honeybadger install [API KEY]
Once installed, Honeybadger automatically reports exceptions in controllers, background jobs, rake tasks, and more.
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.

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

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