To use Raven Ruby all you need is your DSN. Like most Sentry-compatible libraries, it will honor the
SENTRY_DSN environment variable. You can find it on the project settings page under API Keys. You can either export it as environment variable or manually configure it with

If you use Rails, Rake, Sidekiq, etc, you’re already done - no more configuration required!
Raven supports two methods of capturing exceptions:
Raven.capture do # capture any exceptions which happen during execution of this block 1 / 0 end begin 1 / 0 rescue ZeroDivisionError => exception Raven.capture_exception(exception) end
You can add either of the snippets above into your application to verify that GlitchTip is set up correctly.
