Skip to main content wrapper for the Pyramid Web Framework

Project description initializer for the Pyramid Web Framework. 100% Nose Test Covered.


  • To use pyramid_analytics, you should include the following directive in your configuration file:

    pyramid.includes =
  • The following configuration options are available. Note, analytics.api_token and analytics.secret are required.:

    analytics.api_token = mytoken
    analytics.async = True
    analytics.flush_after = 10
    analytics.flush_at = 20
    analytics.max_queue_size = 100000
    analytics.secret = mysekret
    analytics.send = True
  • flush_after specifies after how much time (in seconds) of no flushing that the server will flush. Used in conjunction with the flush_at size policy.

  • To manage the log_level and log options specified by’s analytics-python, you should set the following configuration in your .ini file:

    level = WARN
    handlers = console  # The config needs to include this handler
    qualname = analytics
    propagate = 0  # This "disables" logging
    formatter = generic  # The config needs to include this formatter

    Additionally, you’ll want to register this logger:

  • Under the hood, analytics-python turns logging “off” by setting the logging level to CRITICAL. Setting propagate = 0 is perhaps a more elegant solution.

  • All other options are detailed at’s Python Documentation.

Pyramid Integration

  • This library attaches an attribute, analytics, to the request object. pyramid_analytics checks for an authenticated_userid with the Pyramid api, and will identify or track data for the authenticated user.

  • To update the userid that this analytics package makes calls on behalf of, you should send a new UpdatedAnalyticsUserId event. Example:

    from import UpdatedAnalyticsUserId
    # ...
    # User logged in
    event = UpdatedAnalyticsUserId(request, userid, alias=False)

    This event will update the analytic. If a user registers for your service, you should set alias=True. This does not send any code to, but instead plays nicely with the Jinja2 template described below.

  • This analytics package sends as much data directly from your server as it can, and falls back on supplying events to the browser via the Jinja2 template. Below are the examples of identifying and tracking:

    # identify the authenticated user with certain traits (timestamp and
    # context are optional and described by the documentation), timestamp=None, context=None)
    # identify a (not identified) user with certain traits (timestamp and
    # context are optional and described by the documentation), traits, timestamp=None,
    # track an authenticated user with an event and properties (timestamp and
    # context are optional and described by the documentation), properties, timestamp=None, context=None)
    # track a (not identified) user with an event and properties (timestamp and
    # context are optional and described by the documentation), event, properties, timestamp=None,
  • When Pyramid fires the BeforeRender event, pyramid_analytics adds the following to the renderer globals:

    analytics: {
       api_token: 'mytoken',
       tracking: {
            alias: userid, // or null if analytics hasn't been told to alias
            events: [{event: 'myevent',
                        properties: {property1: 'pvalue1'},
                        context: {context1: 'cvalue1'}}]
            identify: userid, // or null
        tracking_json: '...' // the tracking item as json

Jinja2 Integration

  • An easy to use jinja2 template is provided. To use this template, you must add pyramid_analytics to your jinja2 search path. If you’re using Pyramid’s pyramid_jinja2, update your config.ini as shown below:

    jinja2.directories =
  • To use the template, place this in your templates after including’s javascript:

    {#'s javascript precedes this... #}
    {% include 'analytics.jinja2' %}
