Hey developers! 🚀 Are you ready to take your analytics game to the next level? We've got something exciting for you – the Google Analytics integration in your Hypi app! 📊

Why Google Analytics?​

Understanding user behavior is crucial for any app's success. Google Analytics allows you to gather insights into how users interact with your app, enabling you to make data-driven decisions and enhance user experience.

Easy Integration with Hypi​

Integrating Google Analytics with your Hypi app is a breeze. Simply add a function to your Hypi Query or Mutation types in the schema. If you don't have these types, add them; if you do, modify them. Here's a quick example:

type Query {
sendGAEvent(action: String = "send-event", events: [Json!]): Json @fn(name: "ga", version: "v4", src: "hypi", env: ["GA4_SECRET", "GA4_MEASUREMENT_ID"])

Feel free to name the function whatever you like. The return type is Json, but you can create a custom type matching the structure returned from this function.

Building a GA4 Event​

Use Google's official demo to craft a GA4 event. Then, call it like this:

events: [{ name: "search", params: { search_term: "music festival" } }]

Customize the name and params to suit your event. Remember, you can send up to 25 events in a single request.

Warning: Keep It Clean!​


Avoid sending arbitrary keys in the object. GA might return an OK response, but your event may not appear as expected. Stick to the keys in the GA documentation for a seamless experience.

Environment Keys​

To get started, set up the following environment keys:

  • GA4_SECRET (required): Create this environment variable in your Hypi app and provide the value on each instance using this function.
  • GA4_MEASUREMENT_ID (required IF not provided as a parameter): Ensure you have this key or provide it in the function's parameters.

Dive into Arguments​

Explore various arguments for the GA4 API here. Here are some highlights:

  • is_debug: Boolean (optional): Send a debug event to GA, viewable in the GA debugger.
  • measurement_id: String (required if GA4_MEASUREMENT_ID not provided): Identify your app uniquely.
  • client_id: String (optional): Uniquely identify a user instance of a web client.
  • user_id: String (optional): Specify the user making the request.
  • timestamp_micros: Long (optional): Use the current time if not provided.
  • user_properties: Define user properties for measurement.
