Description Author

This package can track the arrival of users visiting a Web site.

It allows to register a class that will handle events triggered when a new visitor arrives to a Website.

The package will call a function of the given handler class, so applications can perform a custom action when a new user arrives.

It also records on a database table details of each new visiting user, so it can distinguish which are the new users from users that have already visited the site.

Some Web sites provide information about the users that access the site. For instance they can provide statistics about the number of users that have accessed the site in a given period, such as in the last day, week or month.

This package provides a flexible solution that allows applications implement custom actions when a new user or a returning user visits the current Web site.

Redbox-tracker allows helps you to track visiting traffic to your Laravel website. New visitors along with their requests will be saved to the database.

Getting started

Prerequisites

We don't require much, but these are the minimum requirements for using Redbox-tracker.

  • PHP 7.3
  • Laravel 7 or higher

There is one additional requirement if you are contributing to this package. For development on the package itself, we require <code>pdo_sqlite</code> for testing.

Installation

The package can be installed using composer.

composer require redbox/tracker

The package will automatically register itself.

Publish configuration file:

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Redbox\Tracker\Providers\TrackerServiceProvider"

Install the database tables:

php artisan migrate

Create a listener for new visitors in your project:

php artisan make:listener NewVisitorListener

In <code>App\Providers\EventServiceProvider</code> and update the <code>$listen</code> array with:

    protected $listen = [
        // --
        \Redbox\Tracker\Events\NewVisitorEvent::class => [
            \App\Listeners\NewVisitorListener::class,
        ]
        // --
    ];

In <code>App\Listeners\NewVisitorListener</code> you now have access to the visitor data from <code>$event->visitor</code>.

    /
     * Handle the event.
     *
     * @param  object  $event
     * @return void
     */
    public function handle($event)
    {
        dd($event->visitor);
    }

Disclaimer

This project is inspired by Laravel Visitor Tracker. I created this version of this software because I need that functionality for a project of my own. This means I want all my dependencies for that projects 'Inhouse'.
