Raygun vs TrackJS: What are the differences?

Developers describe Raygun as "Use Raygun to track, manage, and report your software errors". Raygun gives you a window into how users are really experiencing your software applications. Detect, diagnose and resolve issues that are affecting end users with greater speed and accuracy. On the other hand, TrackJS is detailed as "JavaScript Error Monitoring for Modern Web Applications". Production error monitoring and reporting for web applications. TrackJS provides deep insights into real user errors. See the user, network, and application events that tell the story of an error so you can actually fix them.

Raygun and TrackJS can be primarily classified as "Exception Monitoring" tools.

Some of the features offered by Raygun are:

  • Error, crash and performance monitoring, in one platform
  • Support for every major programming language and platform
  • Minutes to set up

On the other hand, TrackJS provides the following key features:

  • Telemetry Timeline: More than just an error. The Telemetry Timeline shows the user, network, and console events that preceded an error, like an airplane's BlackBox for your webapp.
  • Realtime Dashboard: Compare the hits and errors for your webapp over time. See if a recent change is causing failures, and where to prioritize debugging.
  • Intelligence Alerting: Get notified when issues important to you are happening, right to your email or chat room.

"Easy setup and brilliant features" is the top reason why over 29 developers like Raygun, while over 12 developers mention "Great error reporting" as the leading cause for choosing TrackJS.

According to the StackShare community, TrackJS has a broader approval, being mentioned in 328 company stacks & 29 developers stacks; compared to Raygun, which is listed in 44 company stacks and 6 developer stacks.

Decisions about Raygun and TrackJS

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...
