  • for normal web browsers (javascript)

# Garails.ga_hostname = 'www.mydomain.com'

Add to your layout (usually app/views/layouts/application.html.erb) in the head section:

<html>
  <head>
    <title>My App</title>
    ...
    <%= google_analytics_tracking_javascript %>
  </head>
  <body>
  ...

for mobile handsets (non-Javascript)

In your layout for mobile handsets without Javascript support, add at the very bottom of the body the following:

<%= utm_tag %>

programmatically

In your view or controller you can record events by using:

ga_event(category, action, label, value)

See code.google.com/apis/analytics/docs/tracking/eventTrackerGuide.html for details. label and value are optional.
