Honeycomb Beeline for NodeJS

OSS Lifecycle CircleCI

This package makes it easy to instrument your Express/NodeJS application to send useful events to Honeycomb, a service for debugging your software in production.


  • Node 10+

Known Issues

  • Using a bundler (esbuild, webpack, etc.) with the Beeline is unsupported. You may be able to use the Beeline with a bundler, but auto-instrumentations will likely not work.
