Build Status

Rollbar is a real-time exception reporting service for Go 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-go is a Golang Rollbar client that makes it easy to report errors to Rollbar with full stacktraces. Errors are sent to Rollbar asynchronously in a background goroutine.

Because Go's error type doesn't include stack information from when it was set or allocated, we use the stack information from where the error was reported.

Setup Instructions and Usage

  1. Sign up for a Rollbar account
  2. Follow the Usage example in our Go SDK docs to get started for your platform.

This library originated with this project This was subsequently forked by Heroku,, and extended. Those two libraries diverged as features were added independently to both. This official library is actually a fork of the Heroku fork with some git magic to make it appear as a standalone repository along with all of that history. We then also went back to the original stvp library and brought over most of the divergent changes. Since then we have moved forward to add more functionality to this library and it is the recommended notifier for Go going forward.
