Honeybadger helps developers identify and debug errors & exceptions when they occur in the production so you can quickly decide whether to apply a hotfix or roll back changes.

You can also use Honeybadger for:

  • Uptime monitoring – checking your sites & services externally from different locations in the world and notifying you if they’re down
  • Check-in monitoring – your services & cron jobs check in to Honeybadger and it notifies you if they go missing

Example use-case

Since Honeybadger is a monitoring service, it best works combined with deployment actions. You can, however, expand the pipeline to build and test your application before the delivery. The pipeline below represents an end-to-end delivery pipeline for a Node.js application—with an automatic notification to Honeybadger upon every release:
