Rocket Sentry

Crates.io version Documentation Tests status

rocket-sentry is a simple add-on for the Rocket web framework to simplify integration with the Sentry application monitoring system.

Or maybe...

"The Rocket Sentry is a static rocket-firing gun platform that is based on a Personality Construct and used in the Aperture Science Enrichment Center."

-- Half-Life wiki


Currently, rocket-sentry only enables the Rust panic handler.

rocket-sentry can be configured via Rocket.toml (sentry_dsn=) or environment variable ROCKET_SENTRY_DSN.


To use this, add the dependency to your Cargo.toml, and add the fairing to your code:

use rocket_sentry::RocketSentry;

fn main() {
        // ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^   add this line

Then, the Sentry integration can be enabled by adding a sentry_dsn= value to the Rocket.toml file, for example:

sentry_dsn = ""  # Disabled
sentry_dsn = "https://057006d7dfe5fff0fbed461cfca5f757@sentry.io/1111111"
sentry_dsn = "https://057006d7dfe5fff0fbed461cfca5f757@sentry.io/1111111"


The functionality can be tested with the examples/panic.rs example. Just change the Rocket.toml file and run it...

rustup override set nightly
cargo run --example panic

Then try accessing this URL: http://localhost:8012/panic?msg=Is+it+time+to+panic+yet?
