Just to let everyone know, I’m expecting that we’ll get tired of the toad puns in about 3 more months. So just hold on till then.
The Reevoo team wrote a post about integrating their exception_messaging plugin with their Beanstalk messaging plugin and their fork of the hoptoad notifier to queue your exceptions from all your apps and send them to Hoptoad from a centralized server. This is a great idea if your site is built using a federated approach with different applications all talking to each other.
If you’re a mac user (which is somewhere just under 100% of the Rails community), then check out Croak.app by Brian Cooke, author of the award winning rooSwitch. It gives you a desktop application that displays your exceptions and plays a sound when new ones arrive.
There are currently two .NET versions of the notifier floating around.
Finally, Adam Wiggins of Heroku posted a howto on integrating hoptoad into your Heroku apps. Hoptoad is a breeze to configure and install, but it’s great to see more posts like this that walk you through each step.
FYI: Hoptoad/Airbrake was sold to RackSpace and is now called Airbrake Bug Tracker.
