git clone https://github.com/snowplow/snowplow-javascript-tracker.git

Package Installation

With npm:

npm install @snowplow/node-tracker

Usage

Initialize your tracker with your desired configuration:

import { tracker, gotEmitter } from '@snowplow/node-tracker';

const e = gotEmitter(
  'collector.mydomain.net', // Collector endpoint
  snowplow.HttpProtocol.HTTPS, // Optionally specify a method - https is the default
  8080, // Optionally specify a port
  snowplow.HttpMethod.POST, // Method - defaults to GET
  5 // Only send events once n are buffered. Defaults to 1 for GET requests and 10 for POST requests.
);

const t = tracker(e, 'myTracker', 'myApp', false);

Then use the track function from this package, along with the buildX functions to send events to your configured emitters:

import {
  buildSelfDescribingEvent,
  buildPageView
} from '@snowplow/node-tracker';

const context = [
  {
    schema: 'iglu:com.acme/user/jsonschema/1-0-0',
    data: {
      type: 'tester',
    },
  },
];

t.track(
  buildPageView({ pageUrl: 'http://www.example.com', pageTitle: 'example page', referrer: 'http://google.com' }),
  context
);

const eventJson = {
  schema: 'iglu:com.acme/viewed_product/jsonschema/1-0-0',
  data: {
    price: 20,
  },
};

track.track(buildSelfDescribingEvent({ event: eventJson }), context);

To enable success and failure callback debugging, run your application with NODE_DEBUG=snowplow.
