Rollbar SDK for Angular 1 & 2+

rollbar.js may be used for error reporting in all Angular applications.

Angular 1

The community library which provides the machinery for Angular 1 support has releases for the different versions of this Rollbar.js library. Those releases lag behind releases to this library, but they are usually in sync.

Angular 2 and Later

Please see the documentation here on getting set up with rollbar.js.

Setting the captureUncaught option to true will result in reporting all uncaught exceptions to Rollbar by default. Additionally, one can catch any Angular-specific exceptions reported through the @angular/core/ErrorHandler component by setting a custom ErrorHandler class.

Configure Rollbar in its own file, so it can be imported where needed:


import * as Rollbar from 'rollbar';
import {
} from '@angular/core';

const rollbarConfig = {
  accessToken: 'POST_CLIENT_ITEM_TOKEN',
  captureUncaught: true,
  captureUnhandledRejections: true,

export const RollbarService = new InjectionToken<Rollbar>('rollbar');

export class RollbarErrorHandler implements ErrorHandler {
  constructor(@Inject(RollbarService) private rollbar: Rollbar) {}

  handleError(err:any) : void {
    this.rollbar.error(err.originalError || err);

export function rollbarFactory() {
  return new Rollbar(rollbarConfig);

Import Rollbar to be used in your root module and configure its providers.


import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
import { NgModule, ErrorHandler } from '@angular/core';

import { AppRoutingModule } from './app-routing.module';
import { AppComponent } from './app.component';
import { RollbarService, rollbarFactory, RollbarErrorHandler } from './rollbar';

  declarations: [
  imports: [
  providers: [
    { provide: ErrorHandler, useClass: RollbarErrorHandler },
    { provide: RollbarService, useFactory: rollbarFactory }
  bootstrap: [AppComponent]
export class AppModule {}

Angular's error handler is now automatically available to your Angular components. To access Rollbar for logging, telemetry, configuration updates, etc, you must import its type definitions and add it to your constructor:

import { Component, Inject } from '@angular/core';
import { RollbarService } from './rollbar';
import * as Rollbar from 'rollbar';

  selector: 'app-root',
  templateUrl: './app.component.html',
  styleUrls: ['./app.component.css']
export class AppComponent {
  constructor(@Inject(RollbarService) private rollbar: Rollbar) {}

  rollbarInfo() {
    // Needs the rollbar object from the constructor.'angular test log');

  throwError() {
    // Does not need the rollbar object from the constructor,
    // and will still log to Rollbar.
    throw new Error('angular test error');

If your system consists of the following:

@angular/cli: 1.4.3
node: 6.11.3
os: darwin x64
@angular/animations: 4.4.3
@angular/cli: 1.4.3
@angular/common: 4.4.3
@angular/compiler: 4.4.3
@angular/compiler-cli: 4.4.3
@angular/core: 4.4.3
@angular/forms: 4.4.3
@angular/http: 4.4.3
@angular/platform-browser: 4.4.3
@angular/platform-browser-dynamic: 4.4.3
@angular/router: 4.4.3
@angular/language-service: 4.4.3
typescript: 2.3.4

there are some further steps you may need to implement in order to get rollbar.js working for you.

When compiling, if you get the error Error encountered resolving symbol values statically. Function calls are not supported. Consider replacing the function or lambda with a reference to an exported function, then the inline factory function in providers should be an exported function.

Another error you may encounter when compiling is Property 'error' does not exist on type '{}'. In this case, the RollbarErrorHandler var rollbar needs to have a type explicitly defined, i.e. var rollbar: Rollbar.
