Installing Airbrake in a Sanic application


The pybrake package makes it quick and easy to monitor your Sanic app’s performance. It only takes a few minutes to start collecting real performance data so let’s jump right in!

Key Features

Installation & Configuration

Set up the Pybrake’s middleware and project config for your web application

Step 1: Install the latest version of pybrake

Airbrake for Sanic uses our official Python notifier pybrake. To install run:

pip install -U pybrake

Step 2: Configure the Pybrake Sanic middleware

First, import the Sanic middleware from the pybrake package

from pybrake.middleware.sanic import init_app

The pybrake provides middleware for error notification and APM.

:param config: Required the application instance to register error notifier 
                and APM to Celery application, example as below one.
:param sqlEngine: Pass SQLAlchemy's database engine instance to monitor 
                    query stats, default value will be None

Next, configure pybrake parameters and register middleware into your application

app.config["PYBRAKE"] = dict(
app = init_app(app)

Now you are ready to start reporting errors and performance monitoring to Airbrake from your Sanic app. Please look into sample example to get more idea.
