Migrating from Raven to Sentry (Javascript)


I’m struggling to set the release in new Javascript.

According with the doc I should use .init({release}) however, the release is known only through an API call, so the init cannot be done at very beginning.

Can I init Sentry twice ?

PS: I’m trying to find the alternative to raven.setRelease

In this case, it might be the easiest to define the beforeSend callback and set it directly on the event.
We do not have a setRelease function because we thought the release should be clear from the beginning.

Can you explain why you do not have the release from the beginning?

I rely on releases (and so I check when a new one is available) through API calls, this fixes for me a lot of problems related to caching as well
