Simple Analytics Gatsby Plugin

Simple Analytics is a clean, simple, and privacy friendly analytics tool. Actionable data in a beautiful dashboard. It does not use cookies and you can bypass ad blockers. Make sure to signup to get most value out of this plugin.

Install

Run the following command:

npm install gatsby-plugin-simple-analytics --save-dev

What does it do

It tracks page views with support for pushState navigation. It sends the data to Simple Analytics and it will be available in your dashboard. You need to have a paid subscription for it to work.

How to use

  1. Add our plugin to gatsby-config.js

    plugins: ['gatsby-plugin-simple-analytics']
  2. If you want to set a custom domain, use this config:

    plugins: [
     {
       resolve: 'gatsby-plugin-simple-analytics',
       options: {
         // Optional custom domain
         domain: 'your.custom.domain'
       }
     }
    ]

    Read our docs on the custom domain feature.

Use with Metomic

Metomic provides a privacy-by-design API to ethically manage your users’ data. It’s pretty cool.

If you want to use it with Metomic’s data-micropolicy use this config:

plugins: [
  {
    resolve: 'gatsby-plugin-simple-analytics',
    options: {
      metomic: 'POLICY-SLUG'
    }
  }
]

It will result in something like this:

<script src="https://scripts.simpleanalyticscdn.com/latest.js" async="" defer="" type="text/x-metomic" data-micropolicy="POLICY-SLUG">
