About Sentry

Sentry is an event logging platform primarily focused on capturing and aggregating exceptions.

Sentry was originally conceived at DISQUS in early 2010 to solve exception logging within a Django application. Since then it has grown to support many popular languages and platforms, including Python, PHP, Java, Ruby, Node.js, and even JavaScript.

If you're curious, you can read about how Sentry came to be on Leanstack.

It's all open source.

The hosted version of Sentry, that is, getsentry.com, is run by using the open source version of Sentry with a bit of proprietary code on top. That said, nearly every change that is needed for the hosted version to work is actually made upstream first, usually in the form of an extensible interface.
