What does this plugin do?

This plugin provides the ability to notify developers of error logs via email or SMS.

Why would I use this plugin?

This plugin is helpful for notifying administrators of error logs being created by the application without them having to login and go to the event log.
This plugin is also helpful if a developer needs to be notified of a specific issue, as it provides a helper for manually sending error notifications.

Are there any requirements for this plugin?

If you enable SMS notifications, you'll need an active, funded Twilio account and active phone number.

Future plans

  • Add option to only notify if logs meet or exceed a specific level
