Note: This package is not being actively developed or maintained by Astronomer. However, it is still functional. If you would like to contribute to the package, please submit a pull request or email pete@astronomer.io.

If you’re using the Meteor JavaScript app platform and haven’t instrumented your app for user analytics yet, our Meteor Package will instrument for you automatically!

Note: If you are using the package percolatestudio:segment.io, you will need to remove this before installing Astronomer. This packages sets a global analytics object and makes the package unfunctional.

  "type": "info",
  "title": "Which user actions get tracked?",
  "body": "All of them! This is done by tracking all Meteor methods, route changes (flow-router and iron-router), and insertions into minimongo."
}

Getting Started wtih MeteorJS

First, open your termal, cd to your app, and add the Astronomer package:

meteor add astronomerio:core

To configure your Meteor app, follow the steps below:

  1. Copy this snippet:
{
  "public": {
    "astronomer": {
      "appId": "XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX",
      "disableUserTracking": true,
      "disableRouteTracking": true,
      "disableMethodTracking": true,
      "ignoreNotFoundWarning": false
    }
  }
}
  1. Create a new file called settings.json at the root directory of your Meteor application and paste the above snippet into that file. If you already have a file under this name, simply add the snippet to it.

  2. In your Astronomer UI, find your Source ID and copy it to your clipboard. Paste this value into the appID field in the snippet from step 1.

  3. Restart your Meteor Application

Additional MeteorJS Features

  2. Take some actions in your app (sign up, change routes).

  4. Go to the integrations that you’ve activated and check to see that events are being properly received on their end.
