Pyramid

How to setup pyrollbar with Pyramid

In your ini file (e.g. production.ini), add rollbar.contrib.pyramid to the end of your pyramid.includes:

[app:main]
pyramid.includes =
    rollbar.contrib.pyramid

And add these rollbar configuration variables:

[app:main]
rollbar.access_token = POST_SERVER_ITEM_ACCESS_TOKEN
rollbar.environment = production
rollbar.branch = master
rollbar.root = %(here)s

Be sure to replace POST_SERVER_ITEM_ACCESS_TOKEN with your project's post_server_item access token, which you can find in the Rollbar.com interface.

The above will configure Rollbar to catch and report all exceptions that occur inside your Pyramid app. However, in order to catch exceptions in middlewares or in Pyramid itself, you will also need to wrap your app inside a pipeline with Rollbar as a filter.

To do this, first change your ini file to use a pipeline. Change this:

[app:main]
#...

To:

[pipeline:main]
pipeline =
    rollbar
    YOUR_APP_NAME

[app:YOUR_APP_NAME]
pyramid.includes =
    rollbar.contrib.pyramid

rollbar.access_token = POST_SERVER_ITEM_ACCESS_TOKEN
rollbar.environment = production
rollbar.branch = master
rollbar.root = %(here)s

[filter:rollbar]
use = egg:rollbar#pyramid
access_token = POST_SERVER_ITEM_ACCESS_TOKEN
environment = production
branch = master
root = %(here)s

Note that the access_token, environment, and other Rollbar config params do need to be present in both the app section and the filter section.

Additionally, note that because Pyramid uses INI files for configuration, any changes to nested settings, like the locals dictionary, will need to be handled in code.
