React Amplitude

A React component library for easy product analytics instrumentation (deprecated)

Product Analysis: react-amplitude

Overview

react-amplitude is a React component library designed for easy product analytics instrumentation. It provides a modern and declarative API to simplify event tracking and property instrumentation with Amplitude. The library aims to address the limitations of traditional event-based logging and autotrack solutions by leveraging core React features to propagate contextual information and minimizing the amount of code required to collect data.

Features

  • Declarative API: react-amplitude offers a declarative API that makes it straightforward to instrument new events and properties with Amplitude.
  • Contextual Event Information: The library allows for easy provision of contextual information to events fired in low-level, reusable components.
  • Minimized Code and Encapsulation Breaking: Unlike traditional event-based analytics logging, react-amplitude minimizes the amount of code required and avoids breaking encapsulation.
  • Elimination of Autotrack Issues: Instead of relying on unreliable autotrack solutions that may unintentionally track sensitive user data, react-amplitude provides a reliable and manual event logging approach.

Installation

To install react-amplitude, you can use either npm or yarn. Here are the installation instructions:

With npm:

npm install react-amplitude

With yarn:

yarn add react-amplitude

Summary

react-amplitude is a React component library that simplifies product analytics instrumentation by offering a modern, declarative API. It improves upon traditional event-based logging and autotrack solutions by providing an easier way to add event properties and contextual information. With react-amplitude, developers can achieve "autotrack"-like instrumentation with just a few lines of code, making tracking and analysis more efficient.

React

React is a widely used JavaScript library for building user interfaces and single-page applications. It follows a component-based architecture and uses a virtual DOM to efficiently update and render UI components

eslint
Eslint

ESLint is a linter for JavaScript that analyzes code to detect and report on potential problems and errors, as well as enforce consistent code style and best practices, helping developers to write cleaner, more maintainable code.

webpack
Webpack

Webpack is a popular open-source module bundler for JavaScript applications that bundles and optimizes the code and its dependencies for production-ready deployment. It can also be used to transform other types of assets such as CSS, images, and fonts.
