I've set up Ahoy in Rails 5.1.5 but it doesn't track visits automatically.
Add this line to your application’s Gemfile: gem 'ahoy_matey' And run: bundle install rails generate ahoy:install rails db:migrate Restart your web server, open a page in your browser, and a visit will be created 🎉
I interpret that last line as: An entry will automatically appear in Ahoy::Visit.last when there's a new visit. Unfortunately, there were no rows in this table after a pageview. So I did this in application_controller.rb:
after_action :ahoy_track private def ahoy_track properties = request.path_parameters properties[:url] = request.url ahoy.track "Pageload", properties end
and now I'm getting visitor data. However, when someone comes from Google, Ahoy::Visit.last.search_keyword is nil.
Are these two problems related? What gives? This is deployed to Heroku on a plain vanilla PostgreSQL setup.ruby-on-railsahoy
