Raven is the official legacy Python client for Sentry_, officially supports Python 2.6–2.7 & 3.3–3.7, and runs on PyPy and Google App Engine.

This SDK is being phased out for Sentry-Python <>_.

It tracks errors and exceptions that happen during the execution of your application and provides instant notification with detailed information needed to prioritize, identify, reproduce and fix each issue.

It provides full out-of-the-box support for many of the popular python frameworks, including Django, and Flask. Raven also includes drop-in support for any WSGI-compatible web application.

Your application doesn't live on the web? No problem! Raven is easy to use in any Python application.

For more information, see our Python Documentation_ for framework integrations and other goodies.


  • Automatically report (un)handled exceptions and errors
  • Send customized diagnostic data
  • Process and sanitize data before sending it over the network


It's really easy to get started with Raven. After you complete setting up a project in Sentry, you’ll be given a value which we call a DSN, or Data Source Name. You will need it to configure the client.

Install the latest package with pip and configure the client::

pip install raven --upgrade

Create a client and capture an example exception:

.. sourcecode:: python

from raven import Client

client = Client('___DSN___')
