macOS Error Reporting

Sentry automatically captures crashes recorded on macOS. See Cocoa error details like function, filename, and line number without ever digging through macOS crash logs.

Getting Started is Simple

To integrate Sentry into your Xcode project, specify it in your Podfile, then run pod install:

platform :macos, '10.10'
use_frameworks! # This is important

target 'YourApp' do
  pod 'Sentry', :git => 'https://github.com/getsentry/sentry-cocoa.git', :tag => '6.1.4'
end

Initialize the SDK as soon as possible in your application lifecycle, such as in your AppDelegate application:didFinishLaunchingWithOptions method:

import Sentry // Make sure you import Sentry

// ....

func application(_ application: UIApplication,
    didFinishLaunchingWithOptions launchOptions: [UIApplication.LaunchOptionsKey: Any]?) -> Bool {

    SentrySDK.start { options in
        options.dsn = "https://<key>@sentry.io/<project>"
        options.debug = true // Enabled debug when first installing is always helpful
    }

    return true
}

That’s it. There’s no step three. Don’t believe us? Check out our Documentation.

Get macOS Crash Reporting With Complete Stack Traces

Reveal hidden context in Apple’s incomplete crash data by automatically symbolicating unreadable symbols. Handle Cocoa macOS crashes with complete context using the React Native SDK while the Objective-C SDK runs in the background.

Fill In The Blanks About macOS Crashes

See what the app was doing when the macOS crash occurred: every user action, controller changes, and custom breadcrumbs. Record events when devices are offline or in airplane mode, then send crash reports as soons as connection is regained.

Resolve macOS Crashes With Better Data

Improve Cocoa error monitoring workflow with a full view of releases so you can mark errors as resolved and prioritize live issues. Learn in which version bug first appeared, merge duplicates, and know if things regress in a future release. Add commit data to automatically suggest an owner of each macOS crash and instantly send deploy emails.

“Sentry in particular is really valuable at tracing exceptions of errors and providing automatic feedback so we can see things clearly and gain a better understanding of what’s going wrong.”

FAQs

Traditional logging provides you with a trail of events. Some of those events are errors, but many times they’re simply informational. Sentry is fundamentally different because we focus on exceptions, or in other words, we capture application crashes. We discuss in more detail here and on our blog.

Sentry supports every major language, framework, and library. You can browse each of them here.

You can get started for free. Pricing depends on the number of monthly events, transactions, and attachments that you send Sentry. For more details, visit our pricing page.

Sentry doesn’t impact a web site’s performance.

If you look at the configuration options for when you initialize Sentry in your code, you’ll see there’s nothing regarding minimizing its impact on your app’s performance. This is because our team of SDK engineers already developed Sentry with this in mind.

Sentry is a listener/handler for errors that asynchronously sends out the error/event to Sentry.io. This is non-blocking. The error/event only goes out if this is an error.

Global handlers have almost no impact as well, as they are native APIs provided by the browsers.
