    Great research as usual. I always come on here to get some great tips, seems like Seer are the only ones actually coming up with their own ideas instead of rewriting old ones.

    It’s amazing that all of that could be accomplished in only 15 lines of code. I’m going to have my developer look over this and see if we can dig into deeper reports like extracting event actions and categories.

    Thanks! Check out the repository on GitHub. I recently found that “hpricot” (a separate required Gem) crashes. The latest version of Gattica compensates for that so it doesn’t crash! Hazzah!

    Hi Chris,
    I was trying to follow your instructions, but when I run:

    ga ={ :email => ‘MY EMAIL’,
    :password => ‘MY PASSWORD’,
    :timeout => 500 })

    I keep getting:

    You have a nil object when you didn’t expect it!
    You might have expected an instance of Array.
    The error occurred while evaluating nil.split

    Any idea what could be wrong?

    I’m not sure off the top of my head. Let’s move this discussion to the official trouble tickets on GitHub: (

    I hope the little boy from that picture didn’t code it…or did he?

    I have a question.

    I have a platform that allows users to generate content and then publish it. I’m tracking these page views to their published content using G.A.. I want to give the creators (users of our platform) a basics stats page to show pageviews and the like.

    Would I include this code within a controller or something? Or get it into a ruby script and pull into a database and pull out later?

    p.s. Nice work on this by the way!
