There are two types of notifications, one is inline_notify, for javascript alert and javascript console notifiers, which returns a string and will be combined, the other is out_of_channel_notify, for rails logger, customized logger, xmpp, which doesn't return anything, just send the message to the notifiers.

By default, all notifiers are disabled, you should enable them first.

# javascript alert
UniformNotifier.alert = true
# javascript alert with options
# the attributes key adds custom attributes to the script tag appended to the body
UniformNotifier.alert = { :attributes => { :nonce => 'mySecret-nonce', 'data-key' => 'value' } }

# javascript console (Safari/Webkit browsers or Firefox w/Firebug installed)
UniformNotifier.console = true
# javascript console with options
# the attributes key adds custom attributes to the script tag appended to the body
UniformNotifier.console = { :attributes => { :nonce => 'mySecret-nonce', 'data-key' => 'value' } }

# rails logger
UniformNotifier.rails_logger = true

# airbrake
UniformNotifier.airbrake = true
# airbrake with options
UniformNotifier.airbrake = { :error_class => Exception }

# AppSignal
UniformNotifier.appsignal = true
# AppSignal with options
UniformNotifier.appsignal = { :namespace => "Background", :tags => { :hostname => "frontend1" } }

# Honeybadger
# Reporting live data from development is disabled by default. Ensure
# that the `report_data` option is enabled via configuration.
UniformNotifier.honeybadger = true
# Honeybadger with options
UniformNotifier.honeybadger = { :error_class => 'Exception' }

# rollbar
UniformNotifier.rollbar = true
# rollbar with options (level can be 'debug', 'info', 'warning', 'error' or 'critical')
UniformNotifier.rollbar = { :level => 'warning' }

# bugsnag
UniformNotifier.bugsnag = true
# bugsnag with options
UniformNotifier.bugsnag = { :api_key => 'something' }

# slack
UniformNotifier.slack = true
# slack with options
UniformNotifier.slack = { :webhook_url => 'http://some.slack.url', :channel => '#default', :username => 'notifier' }

# customized logger
logger = File.open('notify.log', 'a+')
logger.sync = true
UniformNotifier.customized_logger = logger

# xmpp
UniformNotifier.xmpp = { :account => 'sender_account@jabber.org',
                         :password => 'password_for_jabber',
                         :receiver => 'recipient_account@jabber.org',
                         :show_online_status => true }

# terminal-notifier
UniformNotifier.terminal_notifier = true

# raise an error
UniformNotifier.raise = true # raise a generic exception

class MyExceptionClass < Exception; end
UniformNotifier.raise = MyExceptionClass # raise a custom exception type

UniformNotifier.raise = false # don't raise errors

After that, you can enjoy the notifiers, that's cool!

# the notify message will be notified to rails logger, customized logger or xmpp.
UniformNotifier.active_notifiers.each do |notifier|
  notifier.out_of_channel_notify("customize message")

# the notify message will be wrapped by <script type="text/javascript">...</script>,
# you should append the javascript_str at the bottom of http response body.
# for more information, please check https://github.com/flyerhzm/bullet/blob/master/lib/bullet/rack.rb
responses = []
UniformNotifier.active_notifiers.each do |notifier|
  responses << notifier.inline_notify("customize message")
javascript_str = responses.join("\n")

XMPP/Jabber Support

To get XMPP support up-and-running, follow the steps below:

  • Install the xmpp4r gem: gem install xmpp4r
  • Make both the sender and the recipient account add each other as contacts. This will require you to manually log into both accounts, add each other as contact and confirm each others contact request.
  • Boot up your application. UniformNotifier will automatically send an XMPP notification when XMPP is turned on.
