Can't get Rails 3 integration to work

I'm testing out Hoptoad with a bare Rails 3 project.

I followed the instructions to bundle install the gem and run the
generator and so forth. The rake hoptoad:test runs fine, and I can see
the error in the hoptoad admin.

However, when I access the following controller action:

def index
raise 'hell'

...hoptoad is not notified. Furthermore, I get a NoMethodError when I
try to use notify_hoptoad instead.

I dug into the code and it seems that 'hoptoad_notifier/rails' is
never required, and therefore HN::Rails::ActionControllerCatcher is
never included in AC::Base. When I manually require 'hoptoad_notifier/
rails' (in config/initializers/hoptoad.rb), I get a NameError
"undefined method `rescue_action_in_public' for class
`ActionController::Base'". It looks like that method is now in
ActionDispatch::ShowExceptions, so I made the following patch to
rails.rb, which also includes a change to the middleware insertion
code, because ActionController::Failsafe is not found in the
middleware stack:

The patch lets the server start correctly, but I'm still not seeing
errors from the controller in the hoptoad admin when I expect to.

Is anyone else actually using Hoptoad with Rails 3? What am I missing

Hi James,

Can you please open this as an issue via the Tender site at This mailing list is intended

forum :)
