#ErrorBoundry

#OpenSource

For my portfolio websites and my personal OpenSource projects I had started exclusively using React and JavaScript so I needed a way to track any errors that we're happening for my users that I didn't uncover during my personal UAT.

I had narrowed it down to two tools LogRocket and Sentry (I also tried Bugsnag but it did not make the final two). Before I get into this I want to say that both of these tools are amazing and whichever you choose will suit your needs well.

I firstly decided to go with LogRocket the fact that they had a recorded screen capture of what the user was doing when the bug happened was amazing... I could go back and rewatch what the user did to replicate that error, this was fantastic. It was also very easy to setup and get going. They had options for React and Redux.js so you can track all your Redux.js actions. I had a fairly large Redux.js store, this was ended up being a issue, it killed the processing power on my machine, Chrome ended up using 2-4gb of ram, so I quickly disabled the Redux.js option.

After using LogRocket for a month or so I decided to switch to Sentry. I noticed that Sentry was openSorce and everyone was talking about Sentry so I thought I may as well give it a test drive. Setting it up was so easy, I had everything up and running within seconds. It also gives you the option to wrap an errorBoundry in React so get more specific errors. The simplicity of Sentry was a breath of fresh air, it allowed me find the bug that was shown to the user and fix that very simply. The UI for Sentry is beautiful and just really clean to look at, and their emails are also just perfect.

I have decided to stick with Sentry for the long run, I tested pretty much all the JS error loggers and I find Sentry the best.

Segment

Segment has made it a no-brainer to integrate with third-party scripts and services, and has saved us from doing pointless redeploys just to change the It gives you the granularity to toggle services on different environments without having to make any code changes.

It's also a great platform for discovering SaaS products that you could add to your own – just by browsing their catalog, I've discovered tools we now currently use to augment our main product. Here are a few:

  • Heap: We use Heap for our product analytics. Heap's philosophy is to gather events from multiple sources, and then organize and graph segments to form your own business insights. They have a few starter graphs like DAU and retention to help you get started.
  • Hotjar: If a picture's worth a thousand words, than a video is worth 1000 * 30fps = 30k words per second. Hotjar gives us videos of user sessions so we can pinpoint problems that aren't necessarily JS exceptions – say, logical errors in a UX flow – that we'd otherwise miss.
  • Bugsnag: Bugsnag has been a big help in catching run-time errors that our users encounter. Their Slack integration pings us when something goes wrong (which we can control if we want to notified on all bugs or just new bugs), and their source map uploader means that we don't have to debug minified code.
