On this page, we get you up and running with Sentry's Rust SDK.

Using a framework? Take a look at our specific guides to get started.


To add Sentry to your Rust project, just add a new dependency to your Cargo.toml:

sentry = "*"


The most convenient way to use this library is the sentry::init function, which starts a Sentry client with a default set of integrations, and binds it to the current Hub.

The sentry::init function returns a guard that, when dropped, will flush Events that were not yet sent to the Sentry service. It has a two second deadline for this, so shutdown of applications might slightly delay as a result. Keeping the guard around or sending events will not work.
let _guard = sentry::init("");

Important: Note your DSN. The DSN (Data Source Name) tells the SDK where to send events. If you forget it, view Settings -> Projects -> Client Keys (DSN) in

Verify Setup

The quickest way to verify Sentry in your Rust application is to cause a panic:
fn main() {
  let _guard = sentry::init("");

  // Sentry will capture this
  panic!("Everything is on fire!");


Integrations extend the functionality of the SDK for some common frameworks and libraries.

A list of integrations and their feature flags can be found in the integration API docs.
