Parse a referral url into useful information
const Referral = ;let refObj = '';
$ npm install referral-parser
Two of the biggest analytics companies have their own open source data sets of referring websites. Overtime these have become quite separated and no longer aligned meaning you choose one or the other. Referral Parser combines these two sets of data, filters them and makes them available as a single list.
We can then use this dataset, feed in our referral string and get some useful information back.
