Tartarus

It is a deep, gloomy place, a pit, or an abyss used as a dungeon of torment and suffering..

Tartarus provides logging to your database for exceptions triggered by the users of your Rails application. A generator is included that will give you a clean interface to view and manage the exceptions.

Dependencies

If you wish to use the generator to build the exception viewing/manging interface, the following dependencies are used:

  • will_paginate

  • json

  • jquery

Installation

Rails 2.x

  1. Install the gem from:

    gem install tartarus --version=1.0.3
  2. Add the tartarus gem dependency to your enviroment.rb:

    config.gem "tartarus"
  3. Run the generator from the root of your Rails application:

    script/generate tartarus

Rails 3.x

  1. Add the tartarus gem to your Gemfile:

    gem 'tartarus', '2.0.0'
  2. Run 'bundle install' to install the gem.

  3. Run the generator from the root of your Rails application:

    rails generate tartarus

Complete Setup

  1. Run the migration that was generated:

    rake db:migrate
  2. Add “config.middleware.use 'Tartarus::Rack' to the enviroments that you'd like logging in.

  3. Add the javascript and stylesheet includes in your layout:

    <script type="text/javascript" src="/javascripts/tartarus.jquery.js"></script>
    <link href="/stylesheets/tartarus.css" media="all" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />

Configuration

Configuration is handled by config/exceptions.yml, which will be generated for you. You typically will not need to change anything in here, however you can use this to set an email address to have exception notifications delivered to, and a threshold. The threshold indicates how frequently to send the notification, and is handled per-exception grouping (you will be notified every time the threshold is reached, so with the default of 10 you will be notified at 10,20,30,etc.). In addition, when an email is set, a notification will always be sent everytime a new type of exception is raised.

TODO

* Campfire notifications
* Move configuration from the YAML file into the middleware initializer.
