Squash is a collection of tools that help engineers find and kill bugs in their code by automatically collecting, collating and analyzing run time exceptions. Squash consists of the following components:
- Client libraries: Client libraries for different systems (Ruby, Ruby on Rails, Cocoa with Objective-C, etc.) catch and record errors when they occur, then send them to the API endpoint. Client libraries can be found under the SquareSquash organization.
- Front-end: This website displays Bug information and helps the engineer find the root cause for a Bug, and fix it. It also lets engineers manage, assign, and comment on Bugs, as well as view statistics about the Bug.
- API endpoints: These routes (part of the front-end app) receive exception notifications from the client libraries and process them.
Why use the Bitnami Squash Stack?
Bitnami makes it easy to run Squash in the cloud, locally or virtually. The Bitnami Squash Stack is:
We track every release of Squash and update our stack shortly after it's released.
If serious security issues are discovered, we provide new versions of Squash as soon as possible, often within hours of the availability of a fix.
With Bitnami, you get the same software stack and configuration regardless of where you are deploying Squash or other Bitnami Applications. This makes it easy to migrate between different platforms.
With the Bitnami Squash Stack stack compiling, configuring and all of its dependencies are taken care of, so it works out-of-the-box.
Nobody has written a review of Bitnami Squash yet, why not be the first?
