    content_type: "image",
    content_id: "P12453",
    items: [{ name: "Kittens" }],

 */
FirebaseAnalytics.disable();

});

Setup

Navigate to the project settings page for your app on Firebase.

iOS

Download the GoogleService-Info.plist file. In Xcode right-click on the yellow folder named "App" and select the Add files to "App".

Tip: if you drag and drop your file to this location, Xcode may not be able to find it.

Android

Download the google-services.json file and copy it to android/app/ directory of your capacitor project.

iOS setup

  • ionic start my-cap-app --capacitor
  • cd my-cap-app
  • npm install --save @capacitor-community/firebase-analytics
  • mkdir www && touch www/index.html
  • sudo gem install cocoapods (only once)
  • npx cap add ios
  • npx cap sync ios (every time you run npm install)
  • npx cap open ios
  • sign your app at xcode (general tab)
  • add GoogleService-Info.plist to the app folder in xcode

Enable debug view

  1. In Xcode, select Product > Scheme > Edit scheme
  2. Select Run from the left menu
  3. Select the Arguments tab
  4. In the Arguments Passed On Launch section, add -FIRAnalyticsDebugEnabled

Tip: every time you change a native code you may need to clean up the cache (Product > Clean build folder) and then run the app again.

Android setup

  • ionic start my-cap-app --capacitor
  • cd my-cap-app
  • npm install --save @capacitor-community/firebase-analytics
  • mkdir www && touch www/index.html
  • npx cap add android
  • npx cap sync android (every time you run npm install)
  • npx cap open android
  • add google-services.json to your android/app folder

Now you should be set to go. Try to run your client using ionic cap run android --livereload --address=0.0.0.0.

Tip: every time you change a native code you may need to clean up the cache (Build > Clean Project | Build > Rebuild Project) and then run the app again.

Updating

For existing projects you can upgrade all capacitor related packages (including this plugin) with this single command

npx npm-upgrade '*capacitor*' && npm install

Migration

If you were previously using the capacitor-analytics package from npm

  1. Update NPM package:

    npm uninstall --save capacitor-analytics
    npm install --save-prod @capacitor-community/[email protected]
    
  2. Update the plugin initialization in Android's MainActivity.java

    Remove the old plugin import:

    -import io.stewan.capacitor.analytics.AnalyticsPlugin;
    

    Update the init() call to remove the old plugin import. You may be able to remove the entire init() call if there is nothing else in there.

    // Initializes the Bridge
    this.init(savedInstanceState, new ArrayList<Class<? extends Plugin>>() {{
      // Additional plugins you've installed go here
      // Ex: add(TotallyAwesomePlugin.class);
    - add(AnalyticsPlugin.class);
    }});
    
  3. Public API changes:

    • instance() has been renamed to getAppInstanceId()
    • setScreen() has been renamed to setScreenName()
    • setUserID() has been renamed to setUserId()
    • setUserProp() has been renamed to setUserProperty()
    • enable() has been deprecated in favor of setCollectionEnabled()
    • disable() has been deprecated in favor of setCollectionEnabled()
