Source Maps

To enable readable stack traces in your Sentry errors, you need to upload your source maps to Sentry.

Minified stack trace vs. readable stack trace

Uploading Source Maps using Vite

If you are using Vue, chances are good you are using Vite to bundle your project. You can use the Sentry Vite plugin to automatically create releases and upload source maps to Sentry when bundling your app.

Installation

Copied
npm install @sentry/vite-plugin --save-dev

Configuration

Learn more about configuring the plugin in our Sentry Vite Plugin documentation.

Example:

vite.config.js
Copied
import { fileURLToPath, URL } from "node:url";
import { defineConfig } from "vite";
import vue from "@vitejs/plugin-vue";
import sentryVitePlugin from "@sentry/vite-plugin";

// https://vitejs.dev/config/
export default defineConfig({
  build: {
    sourcemap: true, // Source map generation must be turned on
  },
  plugins: [
    vue(),

    // Put the Sentry vite plugin after all other plugins
    sentryVitePlugin({
      org: "example-org",
      project: "example-project",

      // Specify the directory containing build artifacts
      include: "./dist",

      // Auth tokens can be obtained from https://sentry.io/settings/account/api/auth-tokens/
      // and needs the `project:releases` and `org:read` scopes
      authToken: process.env.SENTRY_AUTH_TOKEN,

      // Optionally uncomment the line below to override automatic release name detection
      // release: process.env.RELEASE,
    }),
  ],
  resolve: {
    alias: {
      "@": fileURLToPath(new URL("./src", import.meta.url)),
    },
  },
});

The Sentry Vite plugin will automatically inject a release value into the SDK so you must either omit the release option from Sentry.init or make sure Sentry.init's release option matches the plugin's release option exactly:

Copied
Sentry.init({
  dsn: "https://examplePublicKey@o0.ingest.sentry.io/0",

  // When using the plugin, either remove the `release`` property here entirely or
  // make sure that the plugin's release option and the Sentry.init()'s release
  // option match exactly.
  // release: "my-example-release-1"
});

Other Bundlers

In case you are using a bundler other than Vite to build your Vue project, we've compiled a list of guides on how to upload source maps to Sentry for the most popular JavaScript bundlers:

Other Tools

If you're not using any of tools above, we assume you already know how to generate source maps with your toolchain and we recommend you upload them using Sentry CLI.
