When you’re developing apps for yourself you may not necessarily care as much about the errors that are created at run-time, especially if it’s to solve a personal productivity issue or challenge.
For example, there are a few Chrome and Firefox browser scripts that I’ve created that are terribly coded and that would most likely break in any other environment other than my own but I don’t really care to take the time to refine these small collections of code because I’m not releasing them publicly and definitely not selling them.
But if you’re a WordPress-powered business that are developing applications commercially then you had better correct those errors because your customers will encounter them right-quick.
To help you track, manage, and review errors you may want to take a look at these two apps:
The first is Airbrake, a simple hosted web service that collects and aggregates those pesky errors that are generated so that you can isolate them and fix them. With dupe detection, Github awareness, and even integration with Lighthouse ticketing system, it might be a great place to help you make your application and product amazing.
It fully supports Ruby on Rails but has plugins for PHP for us WordPress developers. It’s not free but might be worth the monthly expense that saves you time in support and customer management.
