Rust

On this page, we get you up and running with Sentry's Rust SDK.

Using a framework? Take a look at our specific guides to get started.

Install

To add Sentry to your Rust project, just add a new dependency to your Cargo.toml:

Cargo.toml
Copied
[dependencies]
sentry = "0.23.0"

Configure

The most convenient way to use this library is the sentry::init function, which starts a Sentry client with a default set of integrations, and binds it to the current Hub.

The sentry::init function returns a guard that, when dropped, will flush Events that were not yet sent to the Sentry service. It has a two second deadline for this, so shutdown of applications might slightly delay as a result. Keeping the guard around or sending events will not work.

main.rs
Copied
let _guard = sentry::init(("https://examplePublicKey@o0.ingest.sentry.io/0", sentry::ClientOptions {
    release: sentry::release_name!(),
    ..Default::default()
}));

Important: Note your DSN. The DSN (Data Source Name) tells the SDK where to send events. If you forget it, view Settings -> Projects -> Client Keys (DSN) in sentry.io.

Verify Setup

The quickest way to verify Sentry in your Rust application is to cause a panic:

main.rs
Copied
fn main() {
    let _guard = sentry::init(("https://examplePublicKey@o0.ingest.sentry.io/0", sentry::ClientOptions {
        release: sentry::release_name!(),
        ..Default::default()
    }));

    // Sentry will capture this
    panic!("Everything is on fire!");
}

Integrations

Integrations extend the functionality of the SDK for some common frameworks and libraries.

A list of integrations and their feature flags can be found in the integration API docs.
