Modules and mixins are, without doubt, great resources that make Ruby so attractive. They give the application the ability to share the code that can be used with ease in other places. It also helps us organize our code by grouping functionalities and concerns, which improves the readability and maintainability of our code. In this article, we will go through the concepts behind modules and mixins.

Microservice architecture is a software design pattern in which we write applications by combining several small programs. These programs, which are called microservices, work together for a common goal. For some teams, it takes a lot less time and effort to write several small applications than a single large one.

Monitoring your application can be a difficult task if you’re just getting started with it. You need to know which metrics matter most and understand which ones you can combine into meaningful graphs. In the (not just holiday ⛄️) spirit of making things smoother for our users, we’ve added a magic dashboard to the Ruby integration that shows you the volume of emails you are sending with ActionMailer.

As we’re doing our best to make monitoring easy, we’ve wanted to make more content that would really show and not just tell you how easy it is to set up monitoring with AppSignal. We’ve been collaborating with Leigh Hallday on making this video for you that will show you everything you need to know about the setup process. We’ll be posting more videos like this on our YouTube channel, so you should subscribe to it if you’d like to get notifications about future videos.

Monitoring for your Node.js apps can be hard. The tricky part is understanding what you need to monitor, instrumenting your code, and then making sense of all the data that’s been emitted. (That’s almost every part you might say 😅 ). At AppSignal, we dogfood our product and understand the pain users feel ourselves. The key points we focus on are the ease of use, flexibility, and developer experience.

According to a definition of multitenancy, when an app serves multiple tenants, it means that there are a few groups of users who share common access to the software instance. An excellent example of an app that supports multitenancy is the Jira platform, where each company has its subdomain to access the software, for example,

AppSignal was built because we were tired of slow and clumsy monitoring setups. Instead, we built monitoring that’s easy yet powerful - an intuitive interface enables you to figure out what’s happening in no time. Today, our team made finding slow events effortless. We’ve fully overhauled our slow events feature, helping developers to quickly find and fix slow queries and API requests.

Let’s talk about SPAs. It all starts from a blank page which is subsequently filled with HTML and JavaScript. If we take PHP pages as an example, they already come bundled with the server, which is an advantage in terms of performance, right? For situations like these, server-side rendering frameworks (such as Next.js) come to the rescue. They process the code on the server-side to pre-fill the HTML result page with something (if not the whole page) before it reaches the browser.

In order to be the best 5-in-1 APM tool for Elixir, we’re constantly working on improving how AppSignal works and integrates with your app. With AppSignal by your side, you’ll have a clear overview of your app’s performance after an installation process that we keep fast and simple. As a first APM for Elixir out there, we’ve always focused on doing all the heavy lifting and providing Elixir developers with a service we’d love to use ourselves.

Made for teams that want to build high quality Ruby and Elixir applications, AppSignal offers amazing insights into errors and performance issues, plus host monitoring and an easy to use custom metrics platform.

AppSignal supports the Elixir language with an Elixir package. The package supports pure Elixir applications and frameworks including Phoenix, Plug & Erlang.

AppSignal supports the Ruby language with a Ruby gem. The gem supports many frameworks and gems including Capistrano, DataMapper, Delayed Job, Grape, MongoDB, Padrino, Rack, Rake, Resque, Ruby on Rails, Sequel, Shoryuken, Sidekiq, Sinatra & Webmachine.

AppSignal now supports Node.js! The package supports pure JavaScript applications and TypeScript applications, and can auto-instrument various frameworks and packages with optional plugins.

AppSignal also has amazing support for catching errors from Front-end JavaScript applications and sending them to AppSignal, including the React, Vue, Angular, Ember, Preact & Stimulus frameworks.

Packed with features:

  • Alerts in your tools: AppSignal integrates with Slack, Flowdock, HipChat, OpsGenie and more.
  • Control your notifications: AppSignal notifies you exactly when you want to. Get the first exceptions per deploy, all of them of never. Set thresholds for performance notifications.
  • Amazing support: We don't do "first line" and "second line" support: you get to speak with a developer, immediately.
  • Send to issue trackers: A single click creates an issue with all the necessary details in your issue tracker of choice.
  • Manage teams and users: Add users to teams and give them access to specific or all, existing and/or new applications you monitor.
  • Focus on design: Developer tools do not need to be complicated and ugly. Our interface is kept clean and easy to use.

Catch errors, track performance, monitor hosts, detect anomalies — all in one tool.
