    I did server-side tracking test in a rails app, where I implemented a tracking gem called ahoy and blazer for visualization. It is very easy to set up, but a bit hard to use. Blazer can do a very basic visualization of the data if you know your SQL queries.

    https://github.com/ankane/ahoy The ahoy gem is pretty useful for this. Data model is pretty simple, it will track unique user sessions and metrics you specify will be associated with these sessions. The gem also parses the user agent, so it will indicate whether a session was on mobile, desktop or tablet.

    After starting Rails and logging in, we can use Blazer to see our user metrics. Browse to our mount point, which on my development environment is at http://localhost:3000/blazer. Querying the ahoy_visits table shows us relevant information about the user and their session. We can also save this query as a shortcut to run it again later. After browsing to the page twice, I ran the following query on the events table. It gave the following results. Note that both events come from the same visit, which is equivalent to a session. We have seen how to track events on the server-side. Now let's look at how to accomplish this from the frontend in Javascript. To do this, we need to enable the Ahoy api in the config/initializers/ahoy.rb file, as shown below. Note that Ahoy also supports geocoding so that you can see where your users are located. We will not explore that feature in this article, but it is a nice capability from a metrics perspective.
