Also, because it's a self-made tool where you can configure it as you want you can add or remove more parameters if you need too, but, in this case we are going to focus on how to start tracking traffic with all the basic features.

1 - Create the event

Visit Event The first thing it's to create your event. It came by default after sign up, but if you don't have it just create one.

It's important to add path, language, userAgent, platform and referrer as params.

Important: After creating the event, you will need to copy the Event UUID.

Event UUID

2 - Track your traffic

Now you just need to trigger the event on every website request you have.

You have two options to start logging your traffic. The first one, and easier, is to just add our script replacing the event-uuid parameter.

<script defer event-uuid="{{EVENT_UUID}}" src=""></script>

Another option, it's to manually calling the endpoint everytime a path is loaded. For example, you can use fetch or whatever you want.

    `${eventUuid}?` +
    'path=' + window.location.pathname +
    '&language=' + window.navigator.language +
    '&userAgent=' + window.navigator.userAgent +
    '&platform=' + window.navigator.platform +
    '&referrer=' + document.referrer

Are you in localhost or test environment?

Events in Localhost

While using our visit script you should know that we are skipping events from localhost or .test domains.

If you are seeing a warning message inside the browser console from this domains it's normal. It should work perfectly on production.
