Raven.js configuration for logging JavaScript exceptions to Sentry (https://getsentry.com/). Without the added ignore options, you'll quickly find yourself swamped with unactionable exceptions due to shoddy browser plugins and 3rd party script errors.

Thanks for the collection. Here are a couple of other ones I've noticed:

bmi_SafeAddOnload

ISP "optimizing" proxy - Cache-Control: no-transform seems to reduce this.

EBCallBackMessageReceived
conduitPage

Some random toolbar: http://toolbar.conduit.com/Developer/HtmlAndGadget/Methods/JSInjection.aspx

It probably also makes sense to block ^chrome:// in ignoreUrls

@acdha: Thanks for the additions, I updated the gist... should probably test it too.

One other addition which I should have included earlier: the filename is reported as miscellaneous_bindings, which appears to be specific to Chrome extensions: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/13140857/what-are-miscellaneous-bindings-and-why-are-they-giving-me-a-port-error

Also, FWIW, I've removed the deprecation warning for ignoreErrors. Apparently it's a lot more useful than I thought. ;)

Guys, do you know how to ignore errors from IOS devices? Can I just add "IOS" to the ignoreErrors list?

@pckhoi you can use a custom filter to filter out all IOS devices . See shouldSendCallback in https://docs.getsentry.com/hosted/clients/javascript/config/

// Firefox extensions
/^resource:\/\//i

Used for Firefox resources / extensions re: this. They also use chrome:// for themes but we're already tackling this for Google Chrome.

// Ignore Google flakiness
/\/(gtm|ga|analytics)\.js/i

Some third party "marketing specialists" can't write JS and are ruining our Sentry reporting. These oughta ignore any errors thrown by GTM. Also thrown in the old analytics and the new universal analytics files for good measure.

I'd suggest adding "Failed to fetch" to "ignoreErrors":

var ravenOptions = {
  ignoreErrors: [
	...
    // Network errors such as going offline or being blocked by a proxy
    'Failed to fetch'
  ],
  ...

Are you facing errors from XiaoMi devices? We have been investigating without success.

We are getting errors like this one:

TypeError: Cannot read property 'title' of null

Yep, it's from Readability.js for Mi Browser. To fix this just add an invisible div to your SPA's index.html tag: <div class="hidden">Loading...</div> and css in a separate stylesheet file .hidden {display: none;} (note that <div style="display: none;">Loading...</div> won't fix). So that stupid Mi Browser will think that there is something to read on your website (instead of single empty <div>) and it won't throw this error anymore.

Isn't it better to use whitelistUrls to specify what scripts should be monitored or am I missing something?

Depends on what you want -- if you only have a few urls you want to monitor, then easiest to use whitelistUrls.

Some errors I collected while working with video (players such as Plyr or native HTML5 video element)

    // HTML5 video
    "The play() request was interrupted by",
    "play() failed because the user",
    "The fetching process for the media resource was aborted by the user agent at the user's request",
    "not allowed by the user agent or the platform in the current context, possibly because the user denied permission",
