Airbrake vs TrackJS: What are the differences?

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; TrackJS: JavaScript Error Monitoring for Modern Web Applications. Production error monitoring and reporting for web applications. TrackJS provides deep insights into real user errors. See the user, network, and application events that tell the story of an error so you can actually fix them.

Airbrake and TrackJS can be categorized as "Exception Monitoring" tools.

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, TrackJS provides the following key features:

  • Telemetry Timeline: More than just an error. The Telemetry Timeline shows the user, network, and console events that preceded an error, like an airplane's BlackBox for your webapp.
  • Realtime Dashboard: Compare the hits and errors for your webapp over time. See if a recent change is causing failures, and where to prioritize debugging.
  • Intelligence Alerting: Get notified when issues important to you are happening, right to your email or chat room.

"Reliable" is the top reason why over 26 developers like Airbrake, while over 12 developers mention "Great error reporting" as the leading cause for choosing TrackJS.

According to the StackShare community, TrackJS has a broader approval, being mentioned in 328 company stacks & 29 developers stacks; compared to Airbrake, which is listed in 91 company stacks and 22 developer stacks.

    Reviews of Airbrake and TrackJS
    Review ofTrackJSTrackJS

    I'm really glad to use TrackJs. I started several months ago, and since then, I've purchased two licences for two different entreprises, a big one and a small one. In both cases, I've been able to detect and correct many hidden javascript errors that, until then, were almost impossible to detect and reproduce. In many cases, TrackJs provides a stack trace along with the error, an unvaluable help to figure out what's going on and how to fix it. Thanks to TrackJs, application quality is better, and maintenance costs are lower. During testing, TracksJs is the perfect match for automated user interface tests. And when we put new changes in production, we will know from the very start if something's going wrong, because TrackJs provides a real time dashboard. And all these benefits come at no cost, as integration is really straightforward. I don't think it's wise to develop web applications without it.
