Introduction

ErrorTracker is a batteries-included app and extensions for python app, that can track errors, send notification, mask sensitive data and capture frames data.

It plays nicely with Django and Flask

Simple to use extension that lets you add error recording interfaces to Python applications. It’s implemented in such a way that the developer has total control of the resulting application.

Out-of-the-box, Error Tracker plays nicely with various ORM’s, including

It also boasts a simple Model management interface.

The biggest feature of ErrorTracker is flexibility. To start off with you can create a very simple application in no time, with exception monitor enabled, but then you can go further and customize different aspects.

ErrorTracker is an active project, well-tested and production ready.

Installation

pip install error-tracker

Features

  • Sensitive data( like password, secret ) Masking

Usage

Flask App configuration

...
APP_ERROR_SEND_EMAIL = True
APP_ERROR_RECIPIENT_EMAIL = ('example@example.com',)
APP_ERROR_SUBJECT_PREFIX = "Server Error"
APP_ERROR_EMAIL_SENDER = 'user@example.com'

app.py

from flask import Flask
from flask_mail import Mail
import settings
from error_tracker import AppErrorTracker, NotificationMixin
from flask_sqlalchemy import SQLAlchemy
...
app = Flask(__name__)
app.config.from_object(settings)
db = SQLAlchemy(app)
class Notifier(Mail, NotificationMixin):
    def notify(self, request, exception,
               email_subject=None,
               email_body=None,
               from_email=None,
               recipient_list=None):
        message = Message(email_subject, recipient_list, email_body, sender=from_email)
        self.send(message)
mailer = Notifier(app=app)
error_tracker = AppErrorTracker(app=app, db=db, notifier=mailer)

....

....
# Record exception when 404 error code is raised
@app.errorhandler(403)
def error_403(e):
    error_tracker.record_exception()
    # any custom logic

# Record error using decorator
@app.errorhandler(500)
@error_tracker.track_exception
def error_500(e):
    # some custom logic
....

Django App Usage

We need to update settings.py file as

  • Add app to installed apps list
  • Add Middleware for exception tracking. This should be added at the end so that it can process exception 1st in the middleware call stack.
  • Other configs related to notification

Sample Code

...
APP_ERROR_RECIPIENT_EMAIL = ('example@example.com',)
APP_ERROR_SUBJECT_PREFIX = "Server Error"
APP_ERROR_EMAIL_SENDER = 'user@example.com'

INSTALLED_APPS = [
    ...
    'error_tracker.DjangoErrorTracker'
]
MIDDLEWARE = [
    ...
    'error_tracker.django.middleware.ExceptionTrackerMiddleWare'
]
