Much like you, we love Rails 😍

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, Ruby Together, and open source.

A first-class monitoring platform for Ruby and Rails

Honeybadger simplifies your production stack by combining three types of monitoring in a simple, easy-to-use platform for Rails:

Error Tracking

Delight your users when you proactively track and fix application errors.

Uptime Monitoring

Know when your app is down or is having problems due to external issues.

Cron & Heartbeat Monitoring

Know when your cron jobs and services go missing or silently fail.

Getting started is easy

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.

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. Learn more about Error Tracking →

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.

Respond instantly when the site is down

Honeybadger monitors your websites and APIs from five different locations around the world. When an uptime check fails, we immediately alert you. Learn more about Uptime Monitoring →

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 cron jobs and services to make sure they check in when they should. Learn more about Cron Job & Heartbeat Monitoring →
