Gulag – A prison camp for application errors
Gulag is a log server for application errors. Gulag has a REST API.
How does it work?
GulagLogger, a Rails plugin, captures errors such as exceptions and slow database queries/requests and sends the details to Gulag.
Let me demonstrate:
Application error -> Gulag REST API (HTTP/HTTPs) -> Gulag data store (Tokyo Tyrant)
You, the administrator, can login to the dashboard and view and delete the errors:
Administrator -> Gulag dashboard -> Gulag data store (Tokyo Tyrant)
Why write something like this?
To capture application errors and experiment with Tokyo Cabinet and Sinatra.
What about Hoptoad and GetExceptional
Yeah, I know.
Beta software. Works fine until you break it.
