Sentry vs GlitchTip: What are the differences?

What is Sentry? Cut time to resolution for app errors from five hours to five minutes. Sentry is an open-source platform for workflow productivity, aggregating errors from across the stack in real time. 500K developers use Sentry to get the code-level context they need to resolve issues at every stage of the app lifecycle.

What is GlitchTip? *Simple, affordable error tracking for your project *. It is an open-source reimplementation of the Sentry error tracking platform. It collects errors reported by your app and puts them all in one place for you to see. It can use Sentry's open source SDKs to receive error data from your application.

Sentry and GlitchTip can be categorized as "Exception Monitoring" tools.

Sentry is an open source tool with 25.6K GitHub stars and 2.9K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Sentry's open source repository on GitHub.

Decisions about GlitchTip and Sentry

I essentially inherited a Shopify theme that was originally created by an agency. After discovering a number of errors being thrown in the Dev Console just by scrolling through the website, I needed more visibility over any errors happening in the field. Having used both Sentry and TrackJS, I always got lost in the TrackJS interface, so I felt more comfortable introducing Sentry. The Sentry free tier is also very generous, although it turns out the theme threw over 15k errors in less than a week.

I highly recommend setting up error tracking from day one. Theoretically, you should never need to upgrade from the free tier if you're keeping on top of the errors...
