Errorception vs Sentry: What are the differences?

Developers describe Errorception as "Painless JavaScript Error Tracking". Errorception is a simple and painless way to find out about JavaScript errors, as they occur in your users' browsers. All you need to do is insert a script tag on your page, and you will start recording errors as they happen in real-time. On the other hand, Sentry is detailed as "Cut time to resolution for app errors from five hours to five minutes". Sentry is an open-source platform for workflow productivity, aggregating errors from across the stack in real time. 500K developers use Sentry to get the code-level context they need to resolve issues at every stage of the app lifecycle.

Errorception and Sentry belong to "Exception Monitoring" category of the tech stack.

Some of the features offered by Errorception are:

  • High performance by design
  • Smart grouping of errors
  • Get trends about every error

On the other hand, Sentry provides the following key features:

  • Real-Time Updates: For the first time, developers can fix code-level issues anywhere in the stack well before users even encounter an error.
  • Complete Context: Spend more time where it matters, rather than investing in low-impact issues.
  • Integrate Everywhere: Drop-in integration for every major platform, framework, and language -- JavaScript, Python, PHP, Ruby, Node, Java, .NET, mobile.

Sentry is an open source tool with 21.4K GitHub stars and 2.44K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Sentry's open source repository on GitHub.

Decisions about Errorception and Sentry

I essentially inherited a Shopify theme that was originally created by an agency. After discovering a number of errors being thrown in the Dev Console just by scrolling through the website, I needed more visibility over any errors happening in the field. Having used both Sentry and TrackJS, I always got lost in the TrackJS interface, so I felt more comfortable introducing Sentry. The Sentry free tier is also very generous, although it turns out the theme threw over 15k errors in less than a week.

I highly recommend setting up error tracking from day one. Theoretically, you should never need to upgrade from the free tier if you're keeping on top of the errors...
