Honeybadger vs Rollbar: What are the differences?

What is Honeybadger? Honeybadger is the modern error management service for rails. Honeybadger does more than report errors, it helps you work with your team to fix them. Errors can be assigned. You can comment via email. And a fine-grained permissions system means you control who has access to each specific project.

What is Rollbar? Full-stack error monitoring for developers. Rollbar helps development teams find and fix errors faster. Quickly pinpoint what’s broken and why. View exceptions from all of your languages, frameworks, platforms & environments in one place. Get context & insights to defeat all errors.

Honeybadger and Rollbar belong to "Exception Monitoring" category of the tech stack.

Some of the features offered by Honeybadger are:

  • Collaboration tools for your team
  • A blazing-fast error drill-down UI
  • Tons of notification options

  • Errors get queued, de-duped, grouped and prioritized
  • View detailed stack traces with local variables
