Mixpanel Data API Client

Gem Version

Ruby access to the Mixpanel web analytics tool.

Mixpanel Data API Reference

Installation

gem install mixpanel_client

or if you use a Gemfile

gem 'mixpanel_client'

Usage

require 'rubygems'
require 'mixpanel_client'

client = Mixpanel::Client.new(
  api_key:    'changeme', 
  api_secret: 'changeme'
)

data = client.request(
  'events/properties',
  event:     'splash features',
  name:      'feature',
  values:    '["uno", "dos"]',
  type:      'unique',
  unit:      'day',
  from_date: '2013-12-1',
  to_date:   '2014-3-1',
  limit:     5
)

puts data.inspect

# The API also supports passing a time interval rather than an explicit date range
data = client.request(
  'events/properties',
  event:    'splash features',
  name:     'feature',
  values:   '["uno", "dos"]',
  type:     'unique',
  unit:     'day',
  interval: 7,
  limit:    5
)

# Use the import API, which allows one to specify a time in the past, unlike the track API.
# note that you need to include your api token in the data. More details at:
# https://mixpanel.com/docs/api-documentation/importing-events-older-than-31-days
data_to_import = {'event' => 'firstLogin', 'properties' => {'distinct_id' => guid, 'time' => time_as_integer_seconds_since_epoch, 'token' => api_token}}
require 'base64' # co-located with the Base64 call below for clarity
encoded_data = Base64.encode64(data_to_import.to_json)
data = client.request('import', {:data => encoded_data, :api_key => api_key})
# data == [1] # => true # you can only import one event at a time

Parallel

You may also make requests in parallel by passing in the parallel: true option.

require 'rubygems'
require 'mixpanel_client'

client = Mixpanel::Client.new(
  api_key:    'changeme', 
  api_secret: 'changeme',
  parallel:   true
)

first_request = client.request(
  'events/properties',
  ...
)

second_request = client.request(
  'events/properties',
  ...
)

third_request = client.request(
  'events/properties',
  ...
)

...

client.run_parallel_requests

puts first_request.response.handled_response
puts second_request.response.handled_response
puts third_request.response.handled_response
