Last updated 4 months ago

Setup

  1. Sign up for Google Analytics and create a new web property.

  2. Add the gtag.js tracking snippet to your site.

  3. Install the target:

    npm install --save @redux-beacon/google-analytics-gtag

Usage

import GoogleAnalyticsGtag from '@redux-beacon/google-analytics-gtag';
// Create or import an events map.
// See "getting started" pages for instructions.
const trackingId = 'REPLACE_WITH_YOUR_TRACKING_ID';
const ga = GoogleAnalyticsGtag(trackingId);
const gaMiddleware = createMiddleware(eventsMap, ga);
const gaMetaReducer = createMetaReducer(eventsMap, ga);

Event Definitions

Don't see your event listed? Please submit a pull request to the Redux Beacon repository with the missing event. Use the source of the existing event-helpers to guide your work. If you need any support feel free to make the pull request with all you're able to do. We can fill in the gaps from there.

pageView

Docs:

https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/collection/gtagjs/pages

import { trackPageView } from '@redux-beacon/google-analytics-gtag';
const pageView = trackPageView((action, prevState, nextState) => {
return {
title: /* (optional) */,
location: /* (optional) */,
path: /* (optional) */,
};
}, /* (optional) tracking Id */, /* (optional) tracking Id */, ...);

The last line of the tracking snippet gtag('config', 'GA_TRACKING_ID'); hits Google Analytics with a page view that matches the first loaded route. If you're tracking page views using Redux Beacon, be sure to remove this line so the initial page load isn't recorded twice.

event

Docs:

https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/collection/gtagjs/events

import { trackEvent } from '@redux-beacon/google-analytics-gtag';
const event = trackEvent((action, prevState, nextState) => {
return {
category: /* fill me in */,
action: /* fill me in */,
label: /* (optional) */,
value: /* (optional) */,
};
});
