Honeybadger for iOS and MacOS

Typical installation time: ~5 minutes

Hi there! You’ve found Honeybadger’s guide to Cocoa exception and error tracking for iOS and MacOS. Once installed, Honeybadger will automatically report errors in your iOS/macOS application.

Getting Started

SwiftPM compatible CocoaPods compatible

CocoaPods

To install via CocoaPods, create/open your Pods file and add a pod entry for ‘Honeybadger’. Make sure use_frameworks! is specified.

shell
use_frameworks! target 'MyApp' do pod 'Honeybadger' end

Swift Package Manager

Open your app in Xcode, then go to File > Swift Packages > Add Package Dependency, and specify the Honeybadger Cocoa GitHub repo: https://github.com/honeybadger-io/honeybadger-cocoa

Initialization

You will need your Honeybadger API key to initialize the Honeybadger library. You can log into your Honeybadger account to obtain your API key.

In your App Delegate, import the Honeybadger library:

Swift

swift
import Honeybadger

Objective-C

objc
@import Honeybadger;

In your didFinishLaunchingWithOptions method, add the following code to initialize Honeybadger:

Swift

swift
Honeybadger.configure(apiKey:"Your Honeybadger API key")

Objective-C

objc
[Honeybadger configureWithAPIKey:@"Your Honeybadger API key"];

Usage Examples

Errors and exceptions will be automatically handled by the Honeybadger library, but you can also use the following API to customize error handling in your application.

notify

You can use the notify methods to manually send an error as a string or Error/NSError object. If available, the Honeybadger library will attempt to extract a stack trace and any relevant information that might be useful. You can also optionally provide context, to include any relevant information about the error.

Swift

swift
Honeybadger.notify( errorString: "My error" ); Honeybadger.notify( errorString: "My error", context: ["user_id" : "123abc"] ); Honeybadger.notify( error: MyError("This is my custom error.") ); Honeybadger.notify( error: MyError("This is my custom error."), context: ["user_id" : "123abc"] );

Objective-C

objc
[Honeybadger notifyWithString:@"My error"]; [Honeybadger notifyWithString:@"My error" context:@{ @"user_id" : @"123abc" } ]; [Honeybadger notifyWithError: [[NSError alloc] initWithDomain:@"my.test.error" code:-1 userInfo: @{}] ]; [Honeybadger notifyWithError:[[NSError alloc] initWithDomain:@"my.test.error" code:-1 userInfo: @{}] context:@{ @"user_id" : @"123abc" } ];

setContext

If you have data that you would like to include whenever an error or an exception occurs, you can provide that data using the setContext method. You can call setContext as many times as needed. New context data will be merged with any previously-set context data.

Swift

swift
Honeybadger.setContext(context: ["user_id" : "123abc"]);

Objective-C

objc
[Honeybadger setContext:@{@"user_id" : @"123abc"}];

resetContext

If you’ve used setContext to store data, you can use resetContext to clear that data.

Swift

swift
Honeybadger.resetContext();

Objective-C

objc
[Honeybadger setContext];
