I had the pleasure of working with the folks at Honeybadger.io to write an official implementation of their sdk for use with Crystal projects. They’re nice folks and I’ve used their service on and off for years with Ruby projects.
Honeybadger is an error aggregation and monitoring service. Among other things, their tools collect stack traces and the application context which created the stack trace to assist in finding and debugging application failures. Their tagline is “the web developers secret weapon” but the error aggregation service is applicable for any program which can reliably be connected to the internet.
- The Honeybadger website, and their blog post announcing this release.
- The Honeybadger for Crystal official shard.
Many thanks to @stephendolan for introducing me to the Honeybadger team.
Edit: I just realized they also put Crystal on their site-wide footer, hopefully this is some good press for Crystal in general.
