Bugpilot for Next.js (App Router)

NPM Version

Bugpilot is a platform to catch production errors in your React applications. You can learn more and signup for free at https://app.bugpilot.com.

This Bugpilot plugin for Next.js (App Router) automatically captures errors in your Next.js application and sends them to your Bugpilot workspace. Bugpilot has a near-zero performance impact, see our Performance page for more details.


The easiest way to get started is to use our CLI Wizard. It will automatically install the plugin and configure your Next.js application:

pnpm dlx @bugpilot/wizard@latest install

Key Features

Bugpilot is specifically designed for Next.js applications using App Router and provides the following features:

  • Built-in error boundaries
  • Automated error detection in client and server components
  • Zero configuration or code changes
  • Zero dependencies
  • Automated source maps (when using Vercel)
  • Near-zero runtime overhead
  • (optional) Bug reporting widget

Supported Error Types

This table shows which error types are supported by the Bugpilot plugin for Next.js (App Router), and for which error types an error page is rendered to the users

Type Catches Errors Renders Error Page
Server page Yes Yes
Server component Yes Yes
Client component / page Yes Yes
Server form Yes Yes
Layout Yes Yes
Root Layout Yes Yes
Server action Yes No (*)

Customizing the Bug Reporting Widget

You can replace the default Report Bug label with your own React component:

import { WidgetTrigger } from '@bugpilot/plugin-nextjs';

const MyComponent = () => {
  // Wrap a button/anchor/div/span with the WidgetTrigger component.
  // The component will automatically render the Bugpilot Bug Reporting widget when clicked.
  // (WidgetTrigger is a client component because it needs to use event handlers)

  return (
      <button>Report Bug</button>

Customizing the Error Pages
