Errbit Client

Project description

A client for reporting exceptions to errbit.

Installation

pip install errbit_reporter

Usage

import errbit_reporter as errbit

config = errbit.Configuration(
    api_key='491b8cbb777b051df1406ae0bcdbee2c',
    errbit_url='http://errbit.yourserver.com')

client = errbit.Client(config)
with client.notify_on_exception():
    your_code_here()

To avoid sending exceptions in development, just use None for the errbit_url. For example:

config = errbit.Configuration(
    api_key='491b8cbb777b051df1406ae0bcdbee2c',
    errbit_url=None,
    environment_name='development')

Additional context can be provided for the error. For example:

context = {
    'request_url': 'http://example.com/account/signup',
    'component': 'AccountController',
    'action': 'signup',
    'params': {
        'user': {
            'name': 'dylan'
        }
    },
    'cgi_data': {
        'REQUEST_METHOD': 'POST',
        'HTTP_USER_AGENT': 'curl'
    },
    'session' {
        'session_id': '6df95c0296cee016fb672af9310667e24dca066909a723dd6439369bb82911f3'
    }
}
with client.notify_on_exception(**context):
    your_code_here()

A notice can also be sent without a context manager to get notice metadata which can be used to log the errbit notice url.

try:
    your_code_here()
except:
    notice_metadata = client.notify()
    print(notice_metadata.url)

By default the exception information is taken from sys.exc_info(), but exc_info can also be passed as the first parameter, and additional context can be provided using the same keyword arguments as notify_on_exception.

In a distributed system (e.g. Spark) it is useful to be able to specify the backtrace manually. For example, this the backtrace could consist of local and remote processes stack trace, even if the remote processes is written in another language.

exc_type, exc_value, exc_traceback = sys.exc_info()
backtrace = traceback.extract_tb(exc_traceback)
notice = errbit.Notice(config, exc_type.__name__, str(exc_value), backtrace)
client.send_notice(notice)
