Installing Airbrake in your Ruby app takes no more than 3 minutes. Install Airbrake notifiers in one of two ways: either with the Airbrake CLI or manually.
If you use Mac or Linux, you have the option to add the Ruby notifier to your Ruby project with the Airbrake CLI. With the CLI, you can set up your notifiers from the terminal and send custom errors directly to Airbrake. For download instructions, head on over to the CLI docs page.
