Installation

Install analytics and @analytics/customerio packages

npm install analytics
npm install @analytics/customerio

How to use

The @analytics/customerio package works in the browser and server-side in Node.js. To use, install the package, include in your project and initialize the plugin with analytics.

Below is an example of how to use the browser plugin.

import Analytics from 'analytics'
import customerIOPlugin from '@analytics/customerio'

const analytics = Analytics({
  app: 'awesome-app',
  plugins: [
    customerIOPlugin({
      siteId: '123-xyz'
    })
  ]
})

/* Track a page view */
analytics.page()

/* Track a custom event */
analytics.track('cartCheckout', {
  item: 'pink socks',
  price: 20
})

/* Identify a visitor */
analytics.identify('user-id-xyz', {
  firstName: 'bill',
  lastName: 'murray'
})

After initializing analytics with the customerIOPlugin plugin, data will be sent into Customer.io whenever analytics.page, analytics.track, or analytics.identify are called.

See additional implementation examples for more details on using in your project.
