Installing Airbrake in a Swift application


  • Captures unhandled exceptions and several unix signals
  • Reject exceptions from earlier app versions
  • Separate exceptions based on application environment
  • Attach custom environment variables
  • Supports custom exception logging

Running the notifier in Swift as framework

First you will want to add Airbrake-iOS to the podfile:

pod 'Airbrake-iOS'

Next add import Airbrake_iOS in your app delegate (if you run into issue with build, please refer to issue #58)

Finally, set up the ABNotifer in your app delegate at the beginning of your

func application(application: UIApplication!, didFinishLaunchingWithOptions launchOptions: NSDictionary!) -> Bool { block.

You can find your PROJECT ID and PROJECT API KEY from your project’s settings:

  projectID: "<Your PROJECT ID>",
  environmentName: ABNotifierAutomaticEnvironment,
  useSSL: true

And you’re good to go.

If you prefer, we also have instructions on running the notifier in Swift as static library and installing directly from source code
