GlitchTip 1.2 is released

This release kicks off our documentation project and includes some quality of life features.


Screenshot of documentation in GlitchTip

GlitchTip now shows inline "getting started" documentation when creating a new project. Our documentation is written in Markdown, and we plan to improve them over time to show more complete versions on our website. If you are looking for a way to contribute, updating documentation is a good start.

Connect GlitchTip to GitLab

GitLab lets you integrate error tracking so you can keep your errors closer to the rest of your workflow. GlitchTip can now integrate into GitLab this way. Generate the auth token in your profile (link for people who aren't self-hosting).

Other improvements

  • Environments are now fully supported in the backend.
  • Searching based on tags (including environments) is now supported with the syntax tag:value in the issues search query. Frontend integration will be added soon to make this feature more obvious.
  • The SaaS subscription page now shows total event count for the billing period. Self-hosted users may also find Django Admin organization event counts useful.
  • We fixed several bugs related to null characters from the PHP client SDK.
  • Some dependencies have been upgraded (Python to v3.9, Angular to v11).
  • Rocket.Chat LiveChat can be enabled, intended to assist SaaS users.

Support GlitchTip

GlitchTip is community-run, not funded by venture capital. We offer free, managed hosting up to 1000 events/month at cost. We strive to make self-hosting a first class option that's as easy to run as possible. If GlitchTip helps your project or organization, please consider supporting us.

  • If you need hosting, use our DigitalOcean referral link when signing up. This directly offsets the cost of our free hosting service.
  • Donate via Liberapay. If every self-host user donated $1/user/month we could hire full time developers for GlitchTip. Today we rely on volunteers and downtime between paid contract jobs.

What’s next

  • Project roadmap
  • More documentation
  • Frontend work to give visibility to environments and search features
  • UX user study

Longer term, we think uptime monitoring would be a great fit.
