Raven - Sentry for Python

PyPi page link -- version PyPi page link -- MIT licence PyPi page link -- Python versions Code Climate

Raven is the official legacy Python client for Sentry, officially supports Python 2.62.7 & 3.33.7, and runs on PyPy and Google App Engine.

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, youll 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:

from raven import Client

client = Client('___DSN___')

Raven Python is more than that however. Checkout our Python Documentation.


Raven will continue to be maintained for bugfixes and contributions are more than welcome! New features should only go into the new sentry-python SDK.
