Installation

With npm:

npm install snowplow-tracker-core

Example

var core = require('snowplow-tracker-core');
 
// Create an instance with base 64 encoding set to false (it defaults to true)
var coreInstance = core(false);
 
// Add a name-value pair to all payloads
coreInstance.addPayloadPair('vid', 2);
 
// Add each name-value pair in a dictionary to all payloads
coreInstance.addPayloadDict({
    'ds': '1160x620',
    'fp': 4070134789
});
 
// Add name-value pairs to all payloads using convenience methods
coreInstance.setTrackerVersion('js-3.0.0');
coreInstance.setPlatform('web');
coreInstance.setUserId('user-321');
coreInstance.setColorDepth(24);
coreInstance.setViewport(600, 400);
 
// Track a page view with URL and title
var pageViewPayload = coreInstance.trackPageView('http://www.example.com', 'landing page');
 
console.log(pageViewPayload);
/*

*/
 
// Stop automatically adding tv, p, and dtm to the payload
coreInstance.resetPayloadPairs();
 
// Track an unstructured event
var unstructEventPayload = coreInstance.trackUnstructEvent({
    'schema': 'iglu:com.snowplowanalytics.snowplow/link_click/jsonschema/1-0-0',

Other features

Core instances can be initialized with two parameters. The first is a boolean and determines whether custom contexts and unstructured events will be base 64 encoded. The second is an optional callback function which gets applied to every payload created by the instance.

var coreInstance = core(true, console.log);

The above example would base 64 encode all unstructured events and custom contexts and would log each payload to the console.

Use the setBase64Encoding method to turn base 64 encoding on or off after initializing a core instance:

var core = require('snowplow-tracker-core');
 
var coreInstance = core(); // Base 64 encoding on by default
 
coreInstance.setBase64Encoding(false); // Base 64 encoding is now off
