Pidget is an exception and error-reporting library for!

If you are looking for extensive and configurable exception handling in ASP.NET Core, then have a look at the ASP.NET Middleware. For most other applications you can use the client.

If you have any questions, ideas or requests, please open a new issue!

How is this different from SharpRaven?

  • Pidget is async-first (for blocking calls use, e.g. client.CaptureAsync([...]).Result)
  • Pidget is primarily targeted towards .NET Core
  • Pidget aims to be modular and extensible, whereas SharpRaven is a bit more monolithic
  • The Pidget client is a unopinionated minimalistic client, i.e. "it just sends stuff"
  • The Pidget client uses a HttpClient as primary transfer mechanism, whereas SharpRaven uses a WebRequest
  • The Pidget ASP.NET Middleware is specifically tailored for ASP.NET Core

Can I use it?

Pidget targets .NET Standard 2.0, which adds support for most (somewhat modern) .NET applications, e.g. .NET Core, Xamarin, Mono, UWP.
