Rollbar SDK for Go | Support Level: Supported

rollbar-go is a Golang Rollbar client that makes it easy to report errors to Rollbar with full stacktraces. Errors are sent to Rollbar asynchronously in a background goroutine.

Because Go's error type doesn't include stack information from when it was set or allocated, we use the stack information from where the error was reported.


package main

import (

func main() {
  rollbar.SetEnvironment("production")                 // defaults to "development"
  rollbar.SetCodeVersion("v2")                         // optional Git hash/branch/tag (required for GitHub integration)
  rollbar.SetServerHost("web.1")                       // optional override; defaults to hostname
  rollbar.SetServerRoot("github.com/heroku/myproject") // path of project (required for GitHub integration and non-project stacktrace collapsing)  - where repo is set up for the project, the server.root has to be "/"

  rollbar.Info("Message body goes here")

  rollbar.Close()  // call before your application closes to send any final events

func doSomething() {
  var timer *time.Timer = nil
  timer.Reset(10) // this will panic

Running Tests

For full integration tests, set up a dummy project in Rollbar and pass the access token as an environment variable to go test:


and verify the reported errors manually.

For coverage results, run:

TOKEN=POST_SERVER_ITEM_ACCESS_TOKEN go test -coverprofile=cover.out
go tool cover -html=cover.out -o cover.html
