Build Status

NBug is a .NET library created to automate the bug reporting process. It automatically creates and sends:

  • Bug reports.
  • Crash reports with minidump.
  • Error/exception reports with stack trace + ext. info. It can also be set up as a user feedback system (i.e. feature requests).

Error reports can be sent to:

  • E-mail addresses.
  • HTTP(POST)/FTP servers.
  • Azure Blob storage.
  • Redmine/Mantis bug trackers.
  • Any custom destination via implementing the IProtocolFactory interface. See the source code for example implementations.


Read the quickstart here:

In a typical scenario all you need is to add the NuGet package (or compile and use the NBug.dll directly, which is always more up-to-date) and add following to your application's Program.cs file (assuming it is a console app):

// Uncomment the following after testing to see that NBug is working as configured
// NBug.Settings.ReleaseMode = true;

// NBug config
NBug.Settings.Destination1 = "Type=Mail;;;;";

// Attach exception handlers after all configuration is done
AppDomain.CurrentDomain.UnhandledException += NBug.Handler.UnhandledException;

After this, any unhandled exception will be formatted and sent to the configured e-mail address, after the app is restarted by the user.


You can post your question on StackOverflow with NBug tag:

Get it on NuGet

Install-Package NBug

Note: NuGet versions tends to be outdated so it is better to compile the project yourself to get the latest changes.
