  • Captures Node errors in the main process (using @sentry/node)
  • Captures JavaScript errors in renderer processes (using @sentry/browser)
  • Captures native crashes (Minidump crash reports) from renderers and the main process
  • Collects breadcrumbs and context information along with events across renderers and the main process
  • Supports electron >= 2


To use this SDK, call init(options) as early as possible in the entry modules in the main process as well as all renderer processes or further sub processes you spawn. This will initialize the SDK and hook into the environment.

import { init } from '@sentry/electron';

import * as Sentry from '@sentry/electron';

// Set user information, as well as tags and further extras
Sentry.configureScope((scope) => {
  scope.setExtra('battery', 0.7);
  scope.setTag('user_mode', 'admin');
  scope.setUser({ id: '4711' });
  // scope.clear();

// Add a breadcrumb for future events
  message: 'My Breadcrumb',
  // ...

// Capture exceptions, messages or manual events
Sentry.captureMessage('Hello, world!');
Sentry.captureException(new Error('Good bye'));
  message: 'Manual',
  stacktrace: [
