:star2: Extraordinary insight into your users and background jobs

Wouldnt it be great to see when one of your users encounters an error, timeout, or validation failure? Now you can - directly in your admin pages.

Introducing Notable

Notable tracks notable requests and background jobs and stores them in your database. What makes a request or job notable? There are a number of default situations, but ultimately you decide what interests you.

By default, Notable tracks:

  • errors
  • 404s
  • slow requests and jobs
  • timeouts
  • validation failures
  • CSRF failures
  • unpermitted parameters
  • blocked and throttled requests

You can track custom notes as well.

:tangerine: Battle-tested at Instacart


Add this line to your applications Gemfile:

gem 'notable'

And run:

rails generate notable:requests
rails generate notable:jobs
rake db:migrate

For a web interface, check out Notable Web.


A Notable::Request is created for:

  • errors
  • 404s
  • slow requests
  • timeouts
  • validation failures
  • CSRF failures
  • unpermitted parameters
  • blocked and throttled requests

For timeouts, use Slowpoke.

For blocked and throttled requests, use Rack Attack.


Wouldnt it be great to have a record of exact jobs that fail?

A Notable::Job is created for:

  • errors
  • slow jobs
  • validation failures
