Name already in use

A tag already exists with the provided branch name. Many Git commands accept both tag and branch names, so creating this branch may cause unexpected behavior. Are you sure you want to create this branch?

Latest commit

Current wording makes it sound like it directly accepts a Logger; in
reality it must be a callable object that returns a Logger.

Build Status Gem Version SemVer

Rollbar is a real-time exception reporting service for Ruby and other languages. The Rollbar service will alert you of problems with your code and help you understand them in a ways never possible before. We love it and we hope you will too.

Rollbar-gem is the SDK for Ruby apps and includes support for apps using Rails, Sinatra, Rack, plain Ruby, and other frameworks.

Key benefits of using Rollbar Ruby Gem are:

Setup Instructions

  1. Sign up for a Rollbar account
  2. Follow the Getting Started instructions in our Ruby SDK docs to install rollbar-gem and configure it for your platform.

Usage and Reference

For complete usage instructions and configuration reference, see our Ruby SDK docs.


Version >= 3.0.0 is compatible with Ruby >= 2.0.0.

Version >= 2.19.0 is compatible with Ruby >= 1.9.3.

Version < 2.19.0 is compatible with Ruby >= 1.8.7.

Ruby 2.6.0

WARNING: Ruby 2.6.0 introduced a new bug (#15472 - Invalid JSON data being sent from Net::HTTP in some cases with Ruby 2.6.0) that may result in the Rollbar API returning an error when an exception is reported. (See rollbar-gem issue #797).

UPDATE: This bug is fixed in Ruby 2.6.1, and rollbar-gem has a safe workaround in version >= 2.19.0. If you need to stay on Ruby 2.6.0 for any reason, make sure you have the latest rollbar-gem.
