Public source maps

Public source maps are a core feature available on all paid plans along with private source maps.

Using source maps allows you to minify your JavaScript code to increase page performance while still being able to get relevant backtraces for your app’s errors.

Using public source maps with Airbrake

This guide assumes you have already installed Airbrake in your JavaScript app.

In order to enable source map support you have to specify the path to the source map file according to the source map specification. For example, airbrake.min.js has the following line:


Please note that the Airbrake backend downloads the source map file to process the backtrace. This means that the source map should be publicly accessible via HTTP. So, for example, don’t expect source map support to work on your local webserver running on localhost.

For other source map options, please check out private source maps and custom source map URLs.
