Every minute your customer experience is compromised impacts your bottom line. But, perhaps more importantly, it costs you goodwill. And even when your Python application is up and running, your customer could still see problems. That's why you need Airbrake.

With Airbrake Python error monitoring and reporting exceptions are captured so that you're notified before users are affected. Airbrake alerts you in real time to Python errors in the communication tool of your choice, whether it's email, Github, Jira, Slack, or another mode. And detailed stack traces, context, and browser breakdowns give you all of the information needed to assess the scope of a problem and determine its source.

Airbrake works in any Python project, including Flask and Django frameworks, to improve your user experience with:

  • Deploy tracking, search and filters - see the impact of deploys on volumes and drill down to the errors that matter most
  • Error details - quickly locate the file, method, and line that caused the error
  • Intelligent error grouping - track trends over time and review and resolve similar errors from a single interface

Python error reporting is simple with Airbrake, which installs in less than three minutes and accessible via a mobile optimized web app. Find out what errors are affecting your customers right now — and how to fix them with Airbrake Python.
