Rack middleware to embed Google Analytics tracking code.


require "rack/google_analytics"

use Rack::GoogleAnalytics, :web_property_id => "UA-000000-1"

app = lambda { |env| [200, { 'Content-Type' => 'text/html' }, '<html><body></body></html>'] }
run app

Configuring for a Rails App

In your `Gemfile`:

gem 'rack-google_analytics'

In your `config/application.rb`

config.middleware.use "Rack::GoogleAnalytics", :web_property_id => "UA-0000000-1"

TODO and Motivations

This isn't very “feature rich”, because I've mostly written it as an excuse to learn more about rack. Hell, it's possible someone has already done it (and better); I didn't bother to look. See the notes below on contributing fixes for these deficiencies.

Note on Patches/Pull Requests

  • Fork the project.

  • Make your feature addition or bug fix.

  • Add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.

  • Commit, do not mess with rakefile, version, or history. (if you want to have your own version, that is fine but bump version in a commit by itself I can ignore when I pull)

  • Send me a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
