Breadcrumbs are a snapshot of events that lead up to a specific error occurrence. Things like web requests, user interactions like clicks or keyboard presses, and navigation updates are all recorded and organized in a timeline, giving you the context you need to understand what actually happened when things broke.
Having this detailed play-by-play information about the environment where the error occurred is an invaluable tool for debugging and replicating bugs quickly.
We hope Breadcrumbs helps you replicate bugs fast to fix them quicker. Have questions or suggestions? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
