    Reviews of Gatling and Raygun
    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.
