AhoyCaptain

A full-featured, mountable analytics dashboard for your Rails app, shamelessly inspired by Plausible Analytics, powered by the Ahoy gem.

Notice

Currently requires using PG and a JSONB column for your data.

Installation

1. Do the bundle

Drop it in:

$ bundle add ahoy_captain

2. Install it

$ rails g ahoy_captain:install

3. Make sure your events are setup correctly

AhoyCaptain doesn't do any tracking for you; it merely provides a dashboard for your data from the Ahoy gem.

By default, AhoyCaptain assumes you're tracking controller and action in your Ahoy::Event properties, and a page view event is named $view. See this section for more information: https://github.com/ankane/ahoy#events

For a quick sanity check:

AhoyCaptain.event.where(name: AhoyCaptain.config.event[:view_name]).count
AhoyCaptain.event.with_routes.count

This can be fully-customized. See the initializer config/initializers/ahoy_captain.rb for more.

4. Star this repo

No, seriously, I need all the internet clout I can get.

5. Analyze your nightmares

If you have a large dataset (> 1GB) you probably want some indexes. rails g ahoy_captain:migration
