Honeybadger Test Node.js App

Welcome to a simple Node.js application that allows you to test the Honeybadger monitoring platform for Node apps. Honeybadger allows you to easily monitor for errors and outages, track deployments, and diagnose performance issues and in your Node applications.

Quick Start

The easiest way to get started with this application is to deploy it to Heroku with the Heroku Button:


Slightly Less Quick Start

If you'd like to do it the old fashioned way, follow these steps:

  1. Sign up or sign in at Honeybadger.io
  2. Create a new project and make a note of the api key on the settings page
  3. Clone or download this app
  4. Run npm install to get the necessary dependencies installed
  5. Run the app: HONEYBADGER_ENV=production HONEYBADGER_API_KEY=your_api_key_here node app.js

Trying It Out

Once you have the app running, either on Heroku or on your local machine, browse to the running Node app. When you click on the first link, an error will be triggered and reported to Honeybadger. Check your email for a message from Honeybadger with a link to the error you just recorded.

Simulate a POST request

curl -d"foo=bar&bar=baz&password=sekret" -H"Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded"


We hope this sample app gives you an easy way to see just how awesome Honeybadger is. :) If you have any questions about this app or the Honeybadger monitoring service, please feel free to drop us a line at support@honeybadger.io.
