    A transport for winston that utilises Airbrake


    npm install winston-airbrake2

    Once installed just add the airbrake transport to your winston with your apiKey:

    var winston = require('winston');
    winston.add(require('winston-airbrake2').Airbrake, {
      apiKey: 'd41d8cd98f00b204e9800998ecf8427e'
    var message = 'This is my error message';
    winston.log('error', message, new Error(message));

    Important: to get a meaningful error message logged to your Airbrake project you need to pass an Error object as the meta in winston. Passing an error object will add a stack trace to Airbrake which will allow you to better debug the error:

    var message = 'Something went wrong';
    winston.log('error', message, new Error(message));
    winston.error(message, new Error(message));


    All of the options from the node-airbrake module are available.

    apiKey null (Required) The apikey that allows you to post to a specific project, this can be found in the project settings.
