Who Uses Sentry?

More developers use Sentry than any other error tracker, monitoring several billion monthly events from the most popular apps, like Dropbox, Stripe, Airbnb, Twitter, Uber, Pinterest, and Xbox Live.

What Is Sentry?

Sentry provides open-source error tracking to monitor and respond to bugs and crashes anywhere in your stack in real time. Sentry aggregates and adds important context to stack traces and tells you the users, services, and servers that were affected. For the first time, every developer can get instant visibility into how their production code affects real users and automatically triage and resolve issues as part of their existing workflow.

Comments: We didn't have to configure and support anything for error tracking and alerting, Sentry is really a one-click solution

Pros: - Very easy to integrate with python projects
- Nice UI, trace page has all the context, you may potentially need to debug
- Can post exceptions right into Slack

Cons: No cons so far.
I think I was confused by the UI navigation a few time, but I was able to figure everything out by myself eventually.

Comments: Overall experience was really good with production alerts being fired anytime there was an exception or an outage on the backend server.

Pros: Sentry can be easily integrated with your platform for generating email alerts for any issues on production backend server. Be it an exception on the server or the outage, sentry will send an alert to your email and once you login to the dashboard, you can easily see the stack trace for the error which occurred on the server along with the frequency of occurring error. Sentry integration is available for different programming languages.

Cons: Setting it up with your backend server for the first time can take some time. Also we faced some issues with integrating the HTTPS sentry link with Node.js. Other than that, its a great tool in helping you keeping your production environment available 24/7.

Comments: Sentry is used within almost all of our applications, whether they're run by ourselves or our customers. It provides amazing peace-of-mind because I can rely on Sentry to report any issues & also keep logs & error reports handy for further investigation of such issues. We've never regretted using Sentry and are very likely to not consider moving to another platform anytime soon.

Pros: Sentry is the best way to monitor your websites / applications for issues. It supports virtually every programming language, runs on every system, is easily set up and maintained and is really easy to use.

Cons: Sentry in the cloud can be a little pricey for smalle projects & developers but there is a self-hosted plan of the app which can be set up on your own servers, so really even pricing-issues are pretty much non-issues for us and, I'd imagine, most potential users.

Comments: Overall it is a very good tool if you want to work with very good code quality.

Pros: It is a must-have thing if you are a web developer. As it helps in tracking errors and helps in improving our code quality and performance. UI is very friendly and whenever there is any warning or error it sends you that over to your email.

Cons: Finding a negative point about this product is quite difficult. But one point I want to highlight that helps the user a very positive way is if the sentry errors can also tell about the parametric errors of function.

Very powerful, but can be confusing to set up

Pros: Sentry is an awesome tool for developers looking to collect errors in one place. The data log is really nice and it's great to be able to get email alerts.

Cons: If you're using one of the premade libraries for an existing framework, it's very easy to get started. But if you aren't working within a framework and need to set up the integration yourself it can be somewhat confusing. Sentry is born out of a previous/older project called Raven, and the Raven name is still referenced which makes it sometimes confusing to find up-to-date documentation.
