Errbit vs Raygun: What are the differences?

Developers describe Errbit as "The open source error catcher that's Airbrake API compliant". Errbit is a tool for collecting and managing errors from other applications. It is Airbrake (formerly known as Hoptoad) API compliant, so if you are already using Airbrake, you can just point the airbrake gem to your Errbit server. On the other hand, Raygun is detailed as "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.

Errbit and Raygun belong to "Exception Monitoring" category of the tech stack.

Some of the features offered by Errbit are:

  • Your exceptions may contain sensitive data that you don't want sitting on someone else's server
  • Your application is behind a firewall
  • You'd like to brand your error catcher

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

"Airbrake compliant" is the primary reason why developers consider Errbit over the competitors, whereas "Easy setup and brilliant features" was stated as the key factor in picking Raygun.

Errbit is an open source tool with 4.01K GitHub stars and 981 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Errbit's open source repository on GitHub.

        Review ofRaygunRaygun

        As a front-end developer, I've always been on the look-out for decent error-tracking. Most of the time, front-end takes a back seat to app development, so it was refreshing to see a product that let's you track JavaScript and PHP errors.

        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!

        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.
