BugSplatDotNetStandard allows you to capture and track exceptions on all .NET Standard 2.0 platforms. This includes:

  • .NET Core

  • Universal Windows Platform (UWP)

  • Xamarin

  • Mono


Install the BugSplatDotNetStandard. NuGet package.

Install-Package BugSplatDotNetStandard

After you've installed the NuGet package, add a using statement for the BugSplatDotNetStandard namespace.

using BugSplatDotNetStandard;

Create a new instance of BugSplat providing it your database, application, and version. It's best to do this at the entry point of your application. Several defaults can be provided to BugSplat. You can provide default values for things such as description, email, key, user and file attachments.

var bugsplat = new BugSplat(database, application, version);
bugsplat.Attachments.Add(new FileInfo("/path/to/attachment.txt"));
bugsplat.Description = "the default description";
bugsplat.Email = "[email protected]";
bugsplat.Key = "the key!";
bugsplat.User = "Fred";

The Post method can be used to send Exception objects to BugSplat.

throw new Exception("BugSplat rocks!");
catch(Exception ex)
await bugsplat.Post(exception);

Additionally, Post can be used to upload minidumps to BugSplat.

await bugsplat.Post(new FileInfo("/path/to/minidump.dmp"));

The default values for description, email, key and user can be overridden in the call to Post. Additional attachments can also be specified in the call to Post. Please note that the total size of the Post body and all attachments is limited to 2MB by default.

var options = new ExceptionPostOptions()
Description = "BugSplat rocks!",
Email = "[email protected]",
User = "Fred",
Key = "the key!"
options.AdditionalAttachments.Add(new FileInfo("/path/to/attachment2.txt"));
await bugsplat.Post(ex, options);

Once you've generated an error, navigate to the BugSplat Dashboard and ensure you have to correct database selected in the dropdown menu. You should see a new crash report under the Recent Crashes section:

Click the link in the ID column to see details about the crash:

Thatโ€™s it! Your application is now configured to post crash reports to BugSplat.
