Installation

How to use

The @analytics/amplitude package works in the browser. To use, install the package, include in your project and initialize the plugin with analytics.

Below is an example of how to use the browser plugin.

import Analytics from 'analytics'
import amplitudePlugin from '@analytics/amplitude'

const analytics = Analytics({
  app: 'awesome-app',
  plugins: [
    amplitudePlugin({
      apiKey: 'token',
      // See options at https://bit.ly/3dRdZnE
      options: {
        trackingOptions: {
          ip_address: false
        }
      }
    })
  ]
})

/* Track a page view */
analytics.page()

/* Track a custom event */
analytics.track('cartCheckout', {
  item: 'pink socks',
  price: 20
})

/* Identify a visitor */
analytics.identify('user-id-xyz', {
  firstName: 'bill',
  lastName: 'murray'
})

After initializing analytics with the amplitudePlugin plugin, data will be sent into Amplitude whenever analytics.page, analytics.track, or analytics.identify are called.

See additional implementation examples for more details on using in your project.
