    Build Status

    ember-cli-airbrake is an Ember CLI addon for integrating the Airbrake JS error notifier into your app.


    • install the addon: ember install ember-cli-airbrake
    • update your config/environment.js with an airbrake object that includes projectId and projectKey:
    // in "production" environment section, e.g.:
    ENV.airbrake = {
      projectId:  '123456',
      projectKey: 'your-project-key'

    Installing the addon will install the NPM component for the airbrake client. This addon uses the airbrake client version 0.5.9.


    You most likely will want to only configure airbrake for your production environment. The window.onerror and Ember.onerror handlers will only be set if there is an airbrake configuration for a particular environment. In all cases, an airbrake service will be exposed. If airbrake isn't configured the airbrake service uses the Ember.K "no-op" function for its methods. This facilitates the usage of the airbrake service without having to add environment-checking code in your app.

    If you are using Errbit, the open-source Airbrake API compatible error catcher, you must also set the host parameter to your errbit installation.

    Example configuration for the production environment:

    // config/environment.js
    module.exports = function(environment) {
      var ENV = {
        /* ... */
      if (environment === 'production') {
        ENV.airbrake = {
          projectId:  'my_project_id',
          projectKey: 'my_project_key'
          // host: ''
      return ENV;


    After installing the addon and configuring it properly, errors will be reported to airbrake. If you want to use the airbrake client to explicitly notify errors, you can use the exposed airbrake service.

    airbrake service

    The airbrake service exposes the following methods:

    • notify(error) -- if you want to explicitly notify errors. Normally this will not be necessary
    • addFilter(filterFn) -- refer to the airbrake client js documentation
    • addReporter(reporter) -- refer to the airbrake client js documentation
    • setSession(sessionData) -- adds a filter to the client that sets the session data to all future error notifications

    example: include user data with error reports

    The airbrake js client uses "filters" to optionally limit reported notifications or to modify the body of an individual notification. To include user data with your error notices, add a filter that modifies notice.session.


    // in application route, or somewhere else that has determined a user is logged in
    airbrake: Ember.inject.service(),
    identifyUser: function(userData) {
      let airbrake = this.get('airbrake');
      // future notices will have their `notice.session` property set to the value of `userData`

    example: explicitly notify of an error

    Normally the window.onerror or Ember.onerror handlers will do this for you, but if you want to explicitly notify of an error, use the airbrake service's notify method:

    // ... some-component.js
    airbrake: Ember.inject.service(),
    notifyOfError: function() {
      let airbrake = this.get('airbrake');
      airbrake.notify(new Error('this is the error'));


    In any environment where config.airbrake is not set (such as your test environment, typically), the error handlers for airbrake notification will not be set up. The airbrake service will still exist, but all its methods will be no-ops. This way your tests will still run happily even if they use, e.g. airbrake.setSession to set user session information.
