Legacy SDK

Raven-Go provides a Sentry client implementation for the Go programming language.

Getting started with Sentry is a three step process:

  1. Sign up for an account
  2. Install your SDK
  3. Configure it

Raven-Go can be installed like any other Go library through go get:

go get github.com/getsentry/raven-go

To use raven-go, you’ll need to import the raven package, then initialize your DSN globally. If you specify the SENTRY_DSN environment variable, this will be done automatically for you. The release and environment can also be specified in the environment variables SENTRY_RELEASE and SENTRY_ENVIRONMENT respectively. More on this in Configuration section.

package main

import "github.com/getsentry/raven-go"

func init() {

For more detailed information about how to get the most out of raven-go there is additional documentation available that covers all the rest:
