Analytics is very important tool for your application for several reasons.

Here are a few of them:

  1. Measure app usage and user behavior: Analytics allow you to track how users are interacting with your app, which features they are using the most, and how often they return to your app. This information can help you make data-driven decisions about how to improve your app and make it more engaging.
  2. Identify and solve user issues: Analytics can help you identify any issues or errors that users are experiencing within your app. This allows you to quickly respond to and resolve issues, resulting in a better user experience.
  3. Optimize app performance: Analytics can help you monitor your app’s performance, including page load times, network requests, and other metrics. This information can help you identify performance bottlenecks and make optimizations to improve your app’s speed and responsiveness.
  4. Make data-driven decisions: Analytics can provide valuable insights that can inform your decision-making process. By tracking user behavior, you can make informed decisions about which features to prioritize, how to optimize user flows, and where to allocate resources.

Below an example of custom hook to use in your React application:

import { useState, useEffect } from 'react';
function useAnalytics(analyticsProvider, config) {
  const [initialized, setInitialized] = useState(false);
  const [error, setError] = useState(null);
  useEffect(() => {
    if (!initialized) {
      try {
        // Initialize the analytics provider with the given configuration
      } catch (err) {
  }, [analyticsProvider, config, initialized]);
  function trackPageview(page) {
    if (initialized) {
      // Track a pageview with the analytics provider
  function trackEvent(category, action, label, value) {
    if (initialized) {
      // Track an event with the analytics provider
      analyticsProvider.trackEvent(category, action, label, value);
  return { initialized, error, trackPageview, trackEvent };

This useAnalytics hook takes two arguments:

  1. analyticsProvider: This is an object that represents your analytics provider. It should have methods for initializing the provider with configuration options, tracking pageviews, and tracking events.
  2. config: This is an object that contains configuration options for the analytics provider, such as a tracking ID or API key.

The hook returns an object with the following properties:

  1. initialized: A boolean value indicating whether the analytics provider has been initialized or not.
  2. error: If an error occurs during initialization, this property will contain the error object.
  3. trackPageview: A function that can be used to track a pageview with the analytics provider.
  4. trackEvent: A function that can be used to track an event with the analytics provider.

To use this hook, you would need to pass in an analytics provider object and a configuration object. The specific implementation of the analytics provider object will depend on the analytics platform you’re using (e.g. Google Analytics, Segment, etc.).

The configuration object should contain any necessary options for initializing the provider (e.g. a tracking ID or API key). Once the hook is initialized, you can use the trackPageview and trackEvent functions to send data to the analytics provider.
