Track user signup events via NodeJs

Connect LogSnag to your NodeJs project to track your user sign up and other important events - LogSnag makes event tracking easy.

When we are building a website or application with NodeJs, we often require our users to sign up for an account before they can access or use our service. This is a common requirement for many services as it allows us to track usage more efficiently, monitor growth, and avoid abuse.

Unfortunately, this process has certain downsides, such as introducing additional friction to our service and making the users go through extra steps before accessing our service.

Thus, tracking user activity when visiting our service and tracking how many go through the signup process and drop off before they use our service is essential. By monitoring the signup process, we can better understand how our visitors interact with our NodeJs service and find and fix any issues they may encounter.

LogSnag makes it easy to track events such as user registration directly within your NodeJs code. As a result, it helps you better understand how your users interact with your product and how your product is performing.

NodeJs code snippets

Once your LogSnag account is set up, you can use the following code snippets to track user signup events. Just replace the YOUR_API_TOKEN with your LogSnag API token and update your project name.

Using NodeJs with Axios
var axios = require('axios');
var data = JSON.stringify({
  "project": "my-saas",
  "channel": "auth",
  "event": "User Registered",
  "description": "email: john@doe.com",
  "icon": "🔥",
  "notify": true
});

var config = {
  method: 'post',
  url: 'https://api.logsnag.com/v1/log',
  headers: { 
    'Content-Type': 'application/json', 
    'Authorization': 'Bearer YOUR_API_TOKEN'
  },
  data : data
};

axios(config)
.then(function (response) {
  console.log(JSON.stringify(response.data));
})
.catch(function (error) {
  console.log(error);
});
Using NodeJs with Native
var https = require('follow-redirects').https;
var fs = require('fs');

var options = {
  'method': 'POST',
  'hostname': 'api.logsnag.com',
  'path': '/v1/log',
  'headers': {
    'Content-Type': 'application/json',
    'Authorization': 'Bearer YOUR_API_TOKEN'
  },
  'maxRedirects': 20
};

var req = https.request(options, function (res) {
  var chunks = [];

  res.on("data", function (chunk) {
    chunks.push(chunk);
  });

  res.on("end", function (chunk) {
    var body = Buffer.concat(chunks);
    console.log(body.toString());
  });

  res.on("error", function (error) {
    console.error(error);
  });
});

var postData = JSON.stringify({
  "project": "my-saas",
  "channel": "auth",
  "event": "User Registered",
  "description": "email: john@doe.com",
  "icon": "🔥",
  "notify": true
});

req.write(postData);

req.end();
Using NodeJs with Request
var request = require('request');
var options = {
  'method': 'POST',
  'url': 'https://api.logsnag.com/v1/log',
  'headers': {
    'Content-Type': 'application/json',
    'Authorization': 'Bearer YOUR_API_TOKEN'
  },
  body: JSON.stringify({
    "project": "my-saas",
    "channel": "auth",
    "event": "User Registered",
    "description": "email: john@doe.com",
    "icon": "🔥",
    "notify": true
  })

};
request(options, function (error, response) {
  if (error) throw new Error(error);
  console.log(response.body);
});
Using NodeJs with Unirest
var unirest = require('unirest');
var req = unirest('POST', 'https://api.logsnag.com/v1/log')
  .headers({
    'Content-Type': 'application/json',
    'Authorization': 'Bearer YOUR_API_TOKEN'
  })
  .send(JSON.stringify({
    "project": "my-saas",
    "channel": "auth",
    "event": "User Registered",
    "description": "email: john@doe.com",
    "icon": "🔥",
    "notify": true
