Install the Rollbar rollbar.js package using npm:

$ npm install --save rollbar


Import rollbar into your app and configure it to catch uncaught exceptions:

import * as Rollbar from 'rollbar';
import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
import {
} from '@angular/core';
import { AppComponent } from './app.component';

const rollbarConfig = {
  accessToken: '{{ client_access_token }}',
  captureUncaught: true,
  captureUnhandledRejections: true,

export class RollbarErrorHandler implements ErrorHandler {
  constructor(private injector: Injector) {}

  handleError(err:any) : void {
    var rollbar = this.injector.get(RollbarService);
    rollbar.error(err.originalError || err);

export function rollbarFactory() {
    return new Rollbar(rollbarConfig);

export const RollbarService = new InjectionToken('rollbar');

  imports: [ BrowserModule ],
  declarations: [ AppComponent ],
  bootstrap: [ AppComponent ],
  providers: [
    { provide: ErrorHandler, useClass: RollbarErrorHandler },
    { provide: RollbarService, useFactory: rollbarFactory }
export class AppModule { }

Send a test error

Run the following command in your Javascript console. Rollbar should catch the error and send it to your account:

window.onerror("TestError: Hello world", window.location.href)


If your system consists of the following

@angular/cli: 1.4.3
node: 6.11.3
os: darwin x64
@angular/animations: 4.4.3
@angular/cli: 1.4.3
@angular/common: 4.4.3
@angular/compiler: 4.4.3
@angular/compiler-cli: 4.4.3
@angular/core: 4.4.3
@angular/forms: 4.4.3
@angular/http: 4.4.3
@angular/platform-browser: 4.4.3
@angular/platform-browser-dynamic: 4.4.3
@angular/router: 4.4.3
@angular/language-service: 4.4.3
typescript: 2.3.4

there are some further steps you may need to implement in order to get rollbar.js working for you.

When compiling, if you get the error Error encountered resolving symbol values statically. Function calls are not supported. Consider replacing the function or lambda with a reference to an exported function, then the inline factory function in providers should be an exported function.

Another error you may encounter when compiling is Property 'error' does not exist on type '{}'. In this case, the RollbarErrorHandler var rollbar needs to have a type explicitly defined, i.e. var rollbar: Rollbar.
