        # ...
        'jserrorlogging',
        # ...
    )
    
  3. Add the following context processor to your TEMPLATE_CONTEXT_PROCESSORS.:

    TEMPLATE_CONTEXT_PROCESSORS = (
        # ...
        'jserrorlogging.context_processors.static',
        # ...
    )
    
  4. Add the following configuration to your urls.py.:

    urlpatterns = patterns(
        # ...
        url(r'^jserr/$', include('jserrorlogging.urls', namespace='jserrorlogging')),
        # ...
    )
    
  5. Add the following templatetag to head tag in your template.:

    <head>
    # ...
    {% include "jserrorlogging/includes/script.html" %}
    # ...
    </head>
    

    About more information of static files for Django, you can see at https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/howto/static-files/.

You can set the custom recipients for notification:

JSERRORLOGGING_MAIL_TO = (
    ('someone', 'someone@example.com'),
)

Default: 3600

When the same errors occurred, you can stop notification for the duration of this setting (seconds).

You can use Python's builtin logger.

This option is default disabled. When you need to this option, JSERRORLOGGING_ENABLE_LOGGER set to True. And JSERRORLOGGING_LOGGER_NAME set to your custom logger name.

            'handlers': ['console', 'mail_admins'],
            'level': 'INFO',
