This extension provides easy way to add Universal Analytics tracking in your Yii2 application.


The preferred way to install this extension is through composer.

Run in console

php composer.phar require cybercog/yii2-google-analytics


In your /views/layouts/main.php add

use cybercog\yii\googleanalytics\widgets\GATracking;

Then before </head> add following code

<?= GATracking::widget([
    'trackingId' => 'UA-XXXXXXXX-X',
]) ?>

Advanced usage

Omit script tag

By default this script generated output:

	(i[r].q=i[r].q||[]).push(arguments)},i[r].l=1*new Date();a=s.createElement(o),
ga('create', 'UA-XXXXXXXX-X', "auto");
ga('send', 'pageview');
ga('set', 'anonymizeIp', true);

But sometimes we need the output without script tag to combined with registerJs or registerJsFile as renderPartial to add dependency or positioning configuration, you can use omitScriptTag true to disable script tag, example:

<?= $this->registerJs(
        'trackingId' => 'UA-XXXXXXXX-X',
        'omitScriptTag' => true,
    ]), \yii\web\View::POS_END
); ?>

Example of advanced usage

You can configure tracking script for your needs:

<?= GATracking::widget([
    'trackingId' => 'UA-XXXXXXXX-X',
    'trackingConfig' => [
        'name' => 'myTracker',
        'allowAnchor' => false,
    'omitScriptTag' => false,
    'debug' => true,
    'debugTrace' => true,
    'anonymizeIp' => true,
    'plugins' => [
        'linkid' => [
            'cookieName' => '_ccli',
            'duration' => 45,
            'levels' => 5,
]) ?>
