How to install Airbrake to capture Go errors

Create an Airbrake account and then choose one of these two very easy ways to send Go errors to Airbrake:

  • Capture Go errors with Gobrake

    Sending Go errors to Airbrake is incredibly simple using our gobrake library:

    airbrake.Notify(errors.New("Hello Airbrake!"), nil)
    // Or the familiar Go pattern.
    if err != nil {
  • Capture Go errors with Glog

    Use our glog fork to seamlessly integrate Airbrake error reporting into your application's logging:

    glog.Errorf("Hello Airbrake!")
    // Or the familiar Go pattern.
    if err != nil {
      glog.Errorf("Something broke: %s", err)
