Setup

You can set the apikey and host in the config.

site/config/config.php

return [
    // other config settings ...
    'bnomei.posthog.apikey' => 'YOUR-KEY-HERE',
    'bnomei.posthog.host' => 'YOUR-HOST-HERE',
];

You can also set a callback if you use the dotenv Plugin.

site/config/config.php

return [
    // other config settings ...
    'bnomei.posthog.apikey' => function() { return env('POSTHOG_APIKEY'); },
    'bnomei.posthog.host' => function() { return env('POSTHOG_HOST'); },
];

Javascript

Output the tracking Javascript via the snippet included in the plugin.

  <?php snippet('posthog'); ?>
  </body>
</html>

Usage

PHP track pageview

site/template/default.php

<?php
// track page view event for current kirby user or identified posthog user
$page->posthogCapturePageView();

// be careful to not have any whitespace before <html>
><html>
    <!-- ... --->
</html>

PHP helper function

Use the posthog()-helper to access Posthog. You can use all methods from the Posthog PHP library.

<?php

posthog()->capture([
    'distinctId' => site()->posthogDistinctId(),
    'event' => 'movie played',
    'properties' => array(
        'movieId' => '123',
        'category' => 'romcom'
    )
])

NOTE: Using the static class from the official posthog docs is not supported.

In addition to the posthog()-helper this plugin adds the following features to the original library.

  • Disabled on localhost by default
  • Cache for Feature Flag list - it would otherwise send a http request to your posthog instance every time you access the list. It still will send one for every feature flag check.
