Getting started with Opbeat just got easier

Recently we’ve made tons of improvements to the core Opbeat functionalities - release tracking, GitHub integration and error logging - but we have lacked a good onboarding flow for all the newcomers.

Getting started should always be quick and easy

We are changing this with the latest update: Each step that requires your action is now clearly marked and, hopefully, well explained. Want to set up release tracking for your app? 3 steps. Integrate it with Github? 1 more step. Correlate errors with releases? 2 extra steps.

Help us make it even smoother

Worry-free shipping with Opbeat shouldn’t take more than a few minutes to set up. If it does, let us know and we’ll do what we can to fix any confusion. Feedback is, as always, more than welcome.

A few sample screenshots of the new onboarding flow below:

1. Select your app stack
