Feel free to comment, send pull requests and patches...


Install the latest version via composer:

$ composer require apix/log-tracker

You require at least PHP 5.3.

Basic usage, Google Analytics.

use Apix\Log;

$options = [
    'tid' => '<UA-XX-XX>',   // Tracking/Property ID (required). 
    //'cid' => '<UUID-v4>',  // Anonymous Client ID UUIDv4 (if not provided, auto-generated one).
    //...                    // Any numbers of Google Analytics Parameters (see notes). 

$ga_logger = new GoogleAnalytics($options);
$ga_logger->setDeferred(true); // Enable batched mode (recommneded).

$dataToTrack = $ga_logger->getPage('http://foo.tld/...', 'Welcome page');
//$dataToTrack = $ga_logger->getEvent('category', 'action', 'label', 'value');
//$dataToTrack = $ga_logger->getSocial('action', 'network', 'target');
//$dataToTrack = $ga_logger->getException('description');
//$dataToTrack = $ga_logger->getApp('name', 'version', 'id');

$ga_logger->notice('GA Tracking', $dataToTrack);


  • The log level and message are not forwarded to Google Analytics (TBD).
  • If required, you can add some additional Google Analytics Parameters to the options array such as uip (user IP), ua (user agent), etc... If not provided, these will be generated and/or guessed from the current context.

Basic usage, Dashbot.

use Apix\Log;

$dashbot_logger = new Dashbot('<API-Key');
//$dashbot_logger->setPlatform('facebook'); // 'generic' (default), 'slack', 'kik'.
//$dashbot_logger->setGlobalTag('myTag');   // Useful to combined metrics.

$messages_received = ["text" => "Hi, bot", "userId" => "..."];
$dataToTrack = $dashbot_logger->incoming($messages_received);
//$dataToTrack = $dashbot_logger->incoming($messages_received, "localTag"); // Override the global tag

$messages_sent = ["text" => "Hello, user", "userId" => "..."];
$dataToTrack = $logger->outgoing($messages_sent);

$dashbot_logger->info('Dashbot Tracking', $dataToTrack);


  • The log level and message are not forwarded to Dashbot (TBD).
  • A local tag (which override the main global tag) can be passed to the incoming and outgoing methods as a second argument.

Advanced usage.

Please for now just follow Apix Log Examples.
