Web Session Counter
What do you do if your boss comes up to you and asks "So how many times must a person come to our app before they give us $500?"
As an engineer you might not care, but this is the stuff that keeps your CEO and growth lead and head of product up at night. A business owner that can answer that 👆 question reliably is god amongst men.
You can use this repo :)
How to use
$ npm install --save web-session-counter
;// Do this on user activityWebSessionCounter;// To get the total count of sessionsconst count = WebSessionCountercount;
.update() is called automatically every time you import
WebSessionCounter. I recommend calling
.update(), if you have a
single page app that doesn't perform a lot of refreshes. Calling
.update frequently, ensures your code will correctly detect every 30
minute period of inactivity.
What is a session

- 30 minutes of inactivity
