delayed_job exception notification with Airbrake

Originally based on this gist and this StackOverflow answer.


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'delayed-plugins-airbrake'


Register the plugin like so:

require 'delayed-plugins-airbrake'
Delayed::Worker.plugins << Delayed::Plugins::Airbrake::Plugin

In a Rails project, this can be done in config/initializers.

System Integration Testing

A test class is provided. It can easily be run from your app's console, etc.


This raises an exception in delayed_job which should show up in Airbrake (if everything is set up correctly :) ).
