## The Tracking Script
> The source of the tracking script is hosted on
The tracking script, registers a new global function named `<%= "#{flavor}_analytics" %>`, and then
asynchronously loads the `analytics.js` library onto the page.
The `<%= "#{flavor}_analytics" %>` global function is the main way you interact with the Analytics library.
It accepts a sequence of parameters, that represent:
: The API category
: The Command of the API category you want to be executed
: The Data to be reported by the Command
