Airbrake vs Raygun: What are the differences?
What is Airbrake? Airbrake captures and groups errors in Ruby, iOS, Django, PHP & more. Airbrake collects errors for your applications in all major languages and frameworks. We alert you to new errors and give you critical context, trends and details needed to find and fix errors fast.
What is Raygun? Use Raygun to track, manage, and report your software errors. Raygun gives you a window into how users are really experiencing your software applications. Detect, diagnose and resolve issues that are affecting end users with greater speed and accuracy.
Airbrake and Raygun belong to "Exception Monitoring" category of the tech stack.
Some of the features offered by Airbrake are:
- Dupe Detection- Developers will only receive an email once when an error occurs — rather than getting buried under an error email avalanche.
- Auto Resolve- An action on each application deployment — that way developers can focus on the problems that exist today, not the ones from last month.
- Github Aware- Airbrake is github-aware, and can link code in your Airbrake error stack traces to the corresponding locations on github.
On the other hand, Raygun provides the following key features:
- Error, crash and performance monitoring, in one platform
- Support for every major programming language and platform
- Minutes to set up

I've used Raygun to track errors in HTML5 apps and WordPress themes. The integration was smooth and I was set up in minutes.
My only qualm at first was that I was going to get spammed to the eye-balls with errors (especially with some of the unhandled errors in WordPress plugins!). Thankfully, Raygun gives you fine control over notifications and conveniently groups all the bugs being reported.
Since setting it up, it has saved me a lot of time and headaches, and I rate it very highly. I've never had to use the support, as I've never had any trouble with it, but I'll assume it's Great!
Raygun saves us so much time we're hooked for life. Great support too.
we used raygun at talenthouse to track errors within our codebase. fairly decent tool, simple ui. even helped the raygun team track down a few issues as we were using their scala integration library.
Efficiently trace and detect errors in the stack without having to explicitly setup error tracking for each action.
