I am working on a dashboard app which shows the server status, site stats and more and I am looking to add Rails application exception tracking as well.
My main reason for wanting to create my own is basically because I want an integrated version which is just one page showing everything happening on my servers and apps.
The dashboard app is a Rails app which has an
app_exceptions controller & model with the following:
Would it be possible to throw all exception messages (much like Airbrake, etc) to this Dashboard app?
Just an update, I am now using the rails_exception_handler gem - https://github.com/Sharagoz/rails_exception_handler
With this I can POST to my Dashboard app very easily :)
One way is to use the rescue_from in your application controller to call a method that POSTs to your dashboard API.
class ApplicationController < ActionController::Base rescue_from Exception, :with => :postNotification
on your :with method definition, define a variable space and you can POST that passed var to your dashboard API, you could do analyzation / display on the dashboard side to give you the most playing room as far as what exception info you want to work with:
def postNotification(e) postToDashboardAPI(e) end
