    Supported platforms

    • iOS
    • Android

    Installation

    $ cordova plugin add cordova-plugin-firebase-analytics
    

    If you get an error about CocoaPods being unable to find compatible versions, run

    $ pod repo update
    

    Use variables ANDROID_FIREBASE_ANALYTICS_VERSION or IOS_FIREBASE_ANALYTICS_VERSION to override dependency versions for Firebase SDKs:

    $ cordova plugin add cordova-plugin-firebase-analytics --variable IOS_FIREBASE_POD_VERSION="~> 8.8.0" --variable ANDROID_FIREBASE_CRASHLYTICS_VERSION="19.0.+"
    

    NOTE: on iOS in order to collect demographic, age, gender data etc. you should additionally include AdSupport.framework into your project.

    Disabling analytics data collection

    In some cases, you may wish to temporarily or permanently disable collection of Analytics data. You can set the value of variable ANALYTICS_COLLECTION_ENABLED to false to prevent collecting any user data:

    $ cordova plugin add cordova-plugin-firebase-analytics --variable ANALYTICS_COLLECTION_ENABLED=false
    

    Later you can re-enable analytics data collection (for instance after getting end-user consent) using method setEnabled.

    Disabling automatic screen collection

    In order to disable automatic collection of screen view events set the value of variable AUTOMATIC_SCREEN_REPORTING_ENABLED to false:

    $ cordova plugin add cordova-plugin-firebase-analytics --variable AUTOMATIC_SCREEN_REPORTING_ENABLED=false
    

    Adding required configuration files

    Cordova supports resource-file tag for easy copying resources files. Firebase SDK requires google-services.json on Android and GoogleService-Info.plist on iOS platforms.

    1. Put google-services.json and/or GoogleService-Info.plist into the root directory of your Cordova project
    2. Add new tag for Android platform
    <platform name="android">
        ...
        <resource-file src="google-services.json" target="app/google-services.json" />
    </platform>
    ...
    <platform name="ios">
        ...
        <resource-file src="GoogleService-Info.plist" />
    </platform>

    This way config files will be copied on cordova prepare step.
