Honeybadger for Ruby

Code Climate Build Status Gem Version

This is the notifier gem for integrating apps with the :zap: Honeybadger Exception Notifier for Ruby and Rails.

When an uncaught exception occurs, Honeybadger will POST the relevant data to the Honeybadger server specified in your environment.

Supported Ruby versions

Honeybadger officially supports the following Ruby versions and implementations:

Ruby Version
MRI >= 1.9.3
JRuby >= 1.7 (1.9 mode)
Rubinius >= 2.0

Supported frameworks

The following frameworks are supported:

Framework Version Native?
Rails >= 3.0 yes
Sinatra >= 1.2.1 yes
Rack >= 1.0 middleware

Rails and Sinatra are supported natively (install/configure the gem and you're done). For vanilla Rack apps, we provide a collection of middleware that must be installed manually.

Integrating with other libraries/frameworks is simple! See the documentation to learn about our public API, and see Contributing to suggest a patch.
