What is Sentry?
Who uses Sentry?
Here are some stack decisions, common use cases and reviews by companies and developers who chose Sentry in their tech stack.
We use Sentry to gather our thrown non-checked exceptions in one place, so we don't have to crawl through all our logs manually. All standalone-applications, our website aswell as our game-servers are linked into Sentry.
We primarily use MariaDB but use PostgreSQL as a part of GitLab , Sentry and Nextcloud , which (initially) forced us to use it anyways. While this isn't much of a decision – because we didn't have one (ha ha) – we learned to love the perks and advantages of PostgreSQL anyways. PostgreSQL's extension system makes it even more flexible than a lot of the other SQL-based DBs (that only offer stored procedures) and the additional JOIN options, the enhanced role management and the different authentication options came in really handy, when doing manual maintenance on the databases.
Last time we shared there information about our decision about using YouTrack over Jira actually we found much better solution that our team have loved. Linear is a minimalistic issue tracker that integrates well with Sentry, GitHub, Slack and Figma which are our basic tools. I would like to recommend checking out Linear as a potential alternative to "heavy" issue trackers, maybe at enterprises that may not work but when we're a startup that works awesome!
Sentry is a great tool to collect errors. It worth to spend time for full integration of it to your project: with releases and so on. Cool tool for tracking and fixing errors.
We use Sentry to catch errors in the production environment.
Compared to Rollbar, Sentry is open source. After the company grows, it can be deployed on its own server.
Sentry has been essential to our development approach. Nobody likes errors or apps that crash. We use Sentry heavily during Node.js and React development. Our developers are able to see error reports, crashes, user's browsers, and more, all in one place. Sentry also seamlessly integrates with Asana, Slack, and GitHub.
- Real-Time Updates: For the first time, developers can fix code-level issues anywhere in the stack well before users even encounter an error.
- Complete Context: Spend more time where it matters, rather than investing in low-impact issues.
- Root Cause: See the events that lead to errors so you always debug the right thing the first time.
- Private & Secure: Sentry is compliant with GDPR, PCI DSS, HIPAA, and Privacy Shield by default.
- Open Source: Sentry is 100% open source and available on GitHub.
