Mixpanel-node

Build Status

This library provides many of the features in the official JavaScript mixpanel library. It is easy to use, and fully async. It is intended to be used on the server (it is not a client module). The in-browser client library is available at https://github.com/mixpanel/mixpanel-js.

Installation

npm install mixpanel

Quick Start

// grab the Mixpanel factory
var Mixpanel = require('mixpanel');

// create an instance of the mixpanel client
var mixpanel = Mixpanel.init('6fd9434dba686db2d1ab66b4462a3a67');

// track an event with optional properties
mixpanel.track("my event", {
    distinct_id: "some unique client id",
    as: "many",
    properties: "as",
    you: "want"
});
mixpanel.track("played_game");

// create or update a user in Mixpanel Engage
mixpanel.people.set("billybob", {
    $first_name: "Billy",
    $last_name: "Bob",
    $created: (new Date('jan 1 2013')).toISOString(),
    plan: "premium",
    games_played: 1,
    points: 0
});

// set a single property on a user
mixpanel.people.set("billybob", "plan", "free");

// increment a numeric property
mixpanel.people.increment("billybob", "games_played");

// increment a numeric property by a different amount
mixpanel.people.increment("billybob", "points", 15);

// increment multiple properties
mixpanel.people.increment("billybob", {"points": 10, "games_played": 1});

// append value to a list
mixpanel.people.append("billybob", "awards", "Great Player");

// append multiple values to a list
mixpanel.people.append("billybob", {"awards": "Great Player", "levels_finished": "Level 4"});

// record a transaction for revenue analytics
mixpanel.people.track_charge("billybob", 39.99);

// clear a users transaction history
mixpanel.people.clear_charges("billybob");

// delete a user
mixpanel.people.delete_user("billybob");

// Create an alias for an existing distinct id
mixpanel.alias("distinct_id", "your_alias");

// all functions that send data to mixpanel take an optional
// callback as the last argument
mixpanel.track("test", function(err) { if (err) throw err; });

// import an old event
var mixpanel_importer = Mixpanel.init('valid mixpanel token', {
    key: "valid api key for project"
});

// needs to be in the system once for it to show up in the interface
mixpanel_importer.track('old event', { gender: '' });

mixpanel_importer.import("old event", new Date(2012, 4, 20, 12, 34, 56), {
    distinct_id: 'billybob',
    gender: 'male'
});

// import multiple events at once
mixpanel_importer.import_batch([
    {
        event: 'old event',
        properties: {
            time: new Date(2012, 4, 20, 12, 34, 56),
            distinct_id: 'billybob',
            gender: 'male'
        }
    },
    {
        event: 'another old event',
        properties: {
            time: new Date(2012, 4, 21, 11, 33, 55),
            distinct_id: 'billybob',
            color: 'red'
        }
    }
]);
