Exceptiontrap vs Sentry: What are the differences?

Exceptiontrap: Error tracking & monitoring for Rails and PHP. Exceptiontrap is the simple and powerful error tracking and exception monitoring service for Ruby on Rails and PHP; Sentry: 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.

Exceptiontrap and Sentry can be categorized as "Exception Monitoring" tools.

Some of the features offered by Exceptiontrap are:

  • With Exceptiontrap you know that your app runs smoothly in production.
  • Exceptiontrap makes it easy to handle your app errors in a team. At the dashboard everyone sees whats going on and if there is something to do.
  • The Information You Need: You can see all your apps information you need to know what was going wrong at one view. You can see all the information related to the 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 Exceptiontrap 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...
