Airbrake: The Art of Fingerpointing


Airbrake is a great tool for identifying errors generated by other apps all in one place. I guess if you’re the offending app you might call it a rat, snitch, stool pigeon or fink, but to the rest of us it’s the canary in the coal mine that can save your butt.

As of today you can view Airbrake errors from within Pivotal Tracker and link activity back into Airbrake as a Tracker comment on the error it’s self.

The folks at Airbrake have explained in detail the two stage setup required to integrate Tracker with their app. Check it out here. If you’re new to Airbrake, it’s free for 30 days, so give it a try and tell us what you think.
