by sc85 | v2.0.1 NativeScript plugin.
npm i --save nativescript-sentry for NativeScript

npm npm

NativeScript plugin that uses sentry-android and sentry-cocoa to catch native errors/stack traces and send them to a sentry server.

:seven: – This is the documentation of v2 which is compatible with NativeScript 7
:construction: – Currently in alpha state, use with caution!
:six: – If you are using NativeScript 6, use a v1 release.


ns plugin add nativescript-sentry



Add the following line to your AndroidManifest.xml within the <application>-tag:

<meta-data android:name="io.sentry.dsn" android:value="__YOUR_DSN_HERE__" />

Without Angular

import { Sentry } from 'nativescript-sentry';
const dsn = 'https://<key>:<secret>@host/<project>';

With Angular

import { SentryModule } from 'nativescript-sentry/angular';

// ...
imports: [
dsn: 'https://<key>:<secret>@host/<project>',
discardUncaughtJsExceptions: true
// ...

Note: this plugin adds a custom ErrorHandler to your angular app


Capture an exception

Sentry.captureException(exeption: Error, options?: ExceptionOptions);
export interface ExceptionOptions {
// Object of additional Key/value pairs which generate breakdowns charts and search filters in Sentry.
tags?: object;

// Object of unstructured data which is stored with events.
extra?: object;


try {
throw new Error('Whoops!');
} catch (error) {
Sentry.captureException(error, {});

Capture a message

Sentry.captureMessage(message: string, options?: MessageOptions)
export interface MessageOptions {
level?: Level;

// Object of additional Key/value pairs which generate breakdowns charts and search filters.
tags?: object;

// Object of unstructured data which is stored with events.
extra?: object;

export enum Level {
Fatal = 'fatal',
Error = 'error',
Warning = 'warning',
Info = 'info',
Debug = 'debug'

Capture navigation breadcrumb

Sentry.captureBreadcrumb(breadcrumb: BreadCrumb)
export interface BreadCrumb {
message: string;
category: string;
level: Level;

Set user

Sentry.setContextUser(user: SentryUser)
export interface SentryUser {
id: string;
email?: string;
username?: string;

Set tags

Sentry.setContextTags(tags: object)

Set extra information

Sentry.setContextExtra(extra: object)

Clear context (user, tags, extra information)


Troubleshooting and important remarks

Native Exceptions / Crashes

If you have a native exception and the app exits, the plugin will save the log and send it in the next app startup, this is how the native plugins are implemented and it is expected behavior.

Android SLF4J Log Error

Sentry has an optional dependency on SLF4J on Android, which when not present will log an error about it not being in the application.

System.err: SLF4J: Failed to load class "org.slf4j.impl.StaticLoggerBinder".
System.err: SLF4J: Defaulting to no-operation (NOP) logger implementation
System.err: SLF4J: See for further details.

To get rid of this log warning you can add a dependency to your app's app.gradle file located in App_Resources/Android/app.gradle to include:

compile 'org.slf4j:slf4j-nop:1.7.25'

in the dependencies. See the demo app.

Demo Apps

To run and test the demo apps you need to replace the placeholder __YOUR_DSN_HERE__ by your own DSN in the following files:

  • demo/App_Resources/Android/src/main/AndroidManifest.xml
  • demo/app/app.ts
  • demo-ng/App_Resources/Android/src/main/AndroidManifest.xml
  • demo-ng/src/app.module.ts
