Rails 3

Install Exceptional in your Rails 3 app

  1. Configure your Gemfile
    gem 'exceptional'

  2. Run Bundler
    bundle install

  3. Generate the Exceptional config file (config/exceptional.yml)
    If you are using bundler:
    $ bundle exec exceptional install YOUR-API-KEY
    If you are not using bundler:
    $ exceptional install YOUR-API-KEY
    You will find the API_KEY in the apps settings screen within Exceptional.

  4. Test everything is working
    $ exceptional test
    You will see a test exception in your exceptional app screen

  5. Enable Exceptional for non production rails environments
    By default Exceptional will not collect errors and exceptions for the development(default) or test rails environments (as specified by RAILS_ENV). If you want exceptional collecting errors for those environments then you must specify that environment by adding the following lines to the config/exceptional.yml file:

This is a setup for Staging, Development and Production environments
