The Bottle integration adds support for the Bottle Web Framework. Currently it works well with the stable version of Bottle (0.12). However the integration with the development version (0.13) doesn't work properly.

Install sentry-sdk from PyPI with the bottle extra:

pip install --upgrade 'sentry-sdk[bottle]'

If you have the bottle package in your dependencies, the Bottle integration will be enabled automatically when you initialize the Sentry SDK.

from bottle import Bottle
import sentry_sdk


app = Bottle()

from bottle import Bottle, run

sentry_sdk.init(...)  # same as above

app = Bottle()

def hello():
    return "Hello World!"

run(app, host='localhost', port=8000)

When you point your browser to http://localhost:8000/ a transaction in the Performance section of will be created. Additionally, an error event will be sent to and will be connected to the transaction.

It takes a couple of moments for the data to appear in

  • The Sentry Python SDK will install the Bottle integration for all of your apps. The integration hooks into base Bottle class.

  • All exceptions leading to an Internal Server Error are reported.

  • Request data is attached to all events: HTTP method, URL, headers, form data, JSON payloads. Sentry excludes raw bodies and multipart file uploads. Sentry also excludes personally identifiable information (such as user ids, usernames, cookies, authorization headers, IP addresses) unless you set send_default_pii to True.

  • Each request has a separate scope. Changes to the scope within a view, for example setting a tag, will only apply to events sent as part of the request being handled.

If you add BottleIntegration explicitly to your sentry_sdk.init() call you can set options for BottleIntegration to change its behavior:

import sentry_sdk
from sentry_sdk.integrations.bottle import BottleIntegration


You can pass the following keyword arguments to BottleIntegration():

  • transaction_style:

    def myendpoint():
        return "ok"

    In the above code, you would set the transaction to:

    • /myurl/<foo> if you set transaction_style="url".
    • myendpoint if you set transaction_style="endpoint"

    The default is "endpoint".

  • Bottle: 0.12.13+
  • Python: 2.7+
