#1

Hi. Could I have some tips about how must I use Google Analytics scripts inside an interactive Rmarkdown document? I success using it in a Shiny application. But it does not work if I use it in a similar way in an interactive Rmarkdown documents. Perhaps I must be carefull about where to put the includeScript() function calling???
Thanks in advance

You simply require the GA JavaScript to trigger, if you are in RMarkdown you can paste the JS straight into the document

e.g.:

---
title: "Untitled"
author: "Mark Edmondson"
date: "11/11/2017"
output: html_document
---
<script async src="https://www.googletagmanager.com/gtag/js?id=UA-XXXX-2"></script>
<script>
  window.dataLayer = window.dataLayer || [];
  function gtag(){dataLayer.push(arguments);}
  gtag('js', new Date());

  gtag('config', 'UA-XXXXX-2');
</script>
