Exceptionless can be configured in just about any JavaScript environment, but this section is dedicated to set up and use within the Angular framework.

Install #

To install exceptionless, you can use npm or yarn:

npm - npm install exceptionless

yarn - yarn add exceptionless

Initializing the Client #

With Exceptionless, you can initialize a default client which provides a singleton instance, or you can initialize a custom client. We'll go over the way to initialize each.

Default Client

import { ExceptionlessClient } from 'exceptionless';
const client = ExceptionlessClient.default;
client.config.apiKey = 'YOUR API KEY';

With that set up, you can use the Exceptionless default client anywhere in your app in a number of ways. You can use hooks, you can use Redux, you can pass Exceptionless down through a higher-order component.

Custom Client

There are a variety of reasons you might want to instantiate a custom Exceptionless client. The custom client, for one, gives you more configuration options. Let's take a look at how to set it up.

import { ExceptionlessClient } from 'exceptionless';
const config = {
apiKey: "YOUR API KEY",
const client = new ExceptionlessClient(config);

You can see an additional parameter passed into the configuration object as an example. To see all the available options, take a look at our configuration values here.

Just like with the default client, you can now pass this custom client throughout your app. If needed, you can also instantiate a new custom client anywhere in your application.

Using Exceptionless in an Angular Component #

To make use of Exceptionless within a component, you'll import the package like described above. Your set up will vary depending on your needs, but this is a quick example of using Exceptionless within the app component of a default Angular project.

import { Component } from '@angular/core';
import { ExceptionlessClient } from 'exceptionless';
const defaultClient = ExceptionlessClient.default;
defaultClient.config.apiKey = "YOUR API KEY";

selector: 'app-root',
templateUrl: './app.component.html',
styleUrls: ['./app.component.css']
export class AppComponent {
title = 'my-app';
public handleClick(event) {
try {
throw new Error("Whoops!");
} catch (error) {

In the app component's html, clicking a button that calls handleClick will immediately throw an error and report it to Exceptionless.
