On 2 June we plan to deprecate Google Analytics classic on GOV.UK, from then on we will only use Universal analytics. Google Analytics classic data collection techniques are being deprecated by Google. We should no longer support classic and new tracking should use only Universal.

  • Remove classic tracker and tests
  • Remove classic specific method arguments (eg custom variable slot and name)
  • No longer load the old ga.js library
  • Keep an Analytics object as a wrapper for all analytics trackers.

GOVUK.Analytics was formerly a namespace used by slimmer. This has been removed and all apps using slimmer updated. Usage goes from:
GOVUK.analytics = new GOVUK.Tracker(…) to GOVUK.analytics = new GOVUK.Analytics(…)

Because the Tracker and TrackerSpec files have been renamed, when reviewing I suggest looking at the individual commits.

An example of how apps will update after this change:

Google Analytics classic data collection techniques are being
deprecated by Google. We no longer need to support classic and any new
tracking should use only Universal.
Simplify tracker object by moving for loops into a single method which
gets passed the function to call on each tracker and the arguments to
give it.

Add some protection against methods not existing on the trackers.
GOVUK.Analytics was formerly a namespace used by slimmer. This has been
removed and all apps using slimmer updated.

Usage goes from
`GOVUK.analytics = new GOVUK.Tracker(…)`
to
`GOVUK.analytics = new GOVUK.Analytics(…)`

The analytics object becomes the container for trackers.
* Remove references to classic, classic’s custom variables and classic
specific implementation.
* Refer to the new Analytics object rather than Tracker
* Update the init example.
Remove duplication of `beforeEach`

What is the rational behind moving from Tracker to Analytics? I thought the benefit of doing the original work was when we wanted to remove classic we could just remove the calls from the Tracker object and consuming applications wouldn't have to change.

Tracker has been renamed because the object is a collective representation of all analytics. When originally written the slimmer GOVUK.Analytics namespace prevented this, although this was always the intention.

In any case, most consuming applications will need to remove their references to google-analytics-classic-tracker.js. It also makes sense to remove classic specific parameters at this point, eg name and scope values passed to setDimension.

Only uses Universal now.

Classic was included in the new API initially to
support older implementations but was removed in
alphagov/govuk_frontend_toolkit#194.
