title: exception im notifier

<p>Well, it looks like I spoke too soon about not having anything
interesting going on.</p>
<blockquote> The <a
href="http://dev.technomancy.us/phil/wiki/ExceptionIM">Exception IM
Notifier plugin</a> is just like the regular Exception Notifier by
Jamis Buck except that it uses <a
href="http://trypticon.org/software/actionmessenger/">ActionMessenger</a>
to send instant messages rather than using ActionMailer to send
email.</blockquote>
<p>Just do your usual <kbd>script/plugin install -x
svn://technomancy.us/exception-im</kbd> and follow the directions
there.</p>
<p>Note that you'll only get notification in production mode for
obvious reasons. If you'd like to try it in development just to
confirm that it's working, replace "rescue_action_in_public" on line
70 of exception_notifiable.rb with "rescue_action".</p>
<p>Anyway, give it a go. Plans for future improvement include AIM
integration (so far it's just Jabber) and the ability to fall back
on email notification if the user is not online.</p>
<p>Oh, also I found out that <a
href="http://dev.technomancy.us/phil/wiki/ebby">Ebby</a> got mentioned
in <a
href="http://applications.linux.com/article.pl?sid=06/06/27/1837234&tid=47&tid=13&tid=100">a
Linux.com article</a>. It was a pretty insignificant blurb, but it
still seems cool by my low standards. (I've never had any high-profile
mention but for a quick link on RedHanded.)</p>
