• Send Javascript client errors to Google Analytics

    Date: 2012.04.09 | Category: Uncategorized

    Not sure how well this will catch errors before onready but as a quick fix seems to work okay.

      var _gaq = _gaq || [];
      _gaq.push(['_setAccount', 'UA-19303815-1']);
      _gaq.push(['_setDomainName', '.etherpad.org']);
      _gaq.push(['_trackPageview']);
    
      (function() {
        var ga = document.createElement('script'); ga.type = 'text/javascript'; ga.async = true;
        ga.src = ('https:' == document.location.protocol ? 'https://ssl' : 'http://www') + '.google-analytics.com/ga.js';
        var s = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; s.parentNode.insertBefore(ga, s);
      })();
    
      /* Google Analytics error catching */
      window.onerror = function(message, file, lineNumber) {
        _gaq.push([
         '_trackEvent',
         'error',
         file + ':' + lineNumber,
         message + ''
        ]);
      };
    

    Don’t forget to replace the UA-part with your own code…
