Airbrake exception logger for Django

Project description

Build Status Test Coverage PyPI

Django Airbrake provides a logging handler to push exceptions and other errors to airbrakeapp or other airbrake-compatible exception handler services (e.g. aTech Media’s Codebase).

Compatible with all supported Django (LTS) versions. At the moment of writing that’s including 1.11 and 2.0 on Python 2.7(only django1.11), 3.4, 3.5 and 3.6.


Installation with pip:

$ pip install django-airbrake

Add 'airbrake.handlers.AirbrakeHandler' as a logging handler:

    'version': 1,
    'disable_existing_loggers': False,
    'filters': {
        'require_debug_false': {
            '()': 'django.utils.log.RequireDebugFalse'
    'handlers': {
        'airbrake': {
            'level': 'WARNING',
            'class': 'airbrake.handlers.AirbrakeHandler',
            'filters': ['require_debug_false'],
            'api_key': '[your-api-key]',
            'env_name': 'develop',
    'loggers': {
        'django.request': {
            'handlers': ['airbrake'],
            'level': 'WARNING',
            'propagate': True,
