        var timeSpent = endTime - startTime;
        Analytics.trackTimings('Time to Checkout', 'User Timings', timeSpent);

    });

directive

Alternatively you can use a directive to avoid filling controllers with Analytics.trackEvent() statements. Note: the directive does not create an isolate scope.

<button type="button" ga-track-event="['video', 'play', 'django.mp4']"></button>

<!-- OR -->

<button type="button" ga-track-event="['video', 'play', 'django.mp4', 4, true, {dimension15: 'My Custom Dimension', metric18: 8000}]"></button>

You can define the properties on your controller too $scope.event = ['video', 'play', 'django.mp4'] and reference them

<button type="button" ga-track-event="event"></button>

configuration

// setup your account
AnalyticsProvider.setAccount('UA-XXXXX-xx');

// Optional set domain (Use 'none' for testing on localhost)
AnalyticsProvider.setDomainName('XXX');
// Use display features plugin
AnalyticsProvider.useDisplayFeatures(true);
// Use analytics.js instead of ga.js
AnalyticsProvider.useAnalytics(true);
// Ignore first page view.
AnalyticsProvider.ignoreFirstPageLoad(true);
// Enable eCommerce module for analytics.js
AnalyticsProvider.useECommerce(true, false);
// Enable enhanced eCommerce module for analytics.js
AnalyticsProvider.useECommerce(true, true);
// Enable enhanced link attribution module for analytics.js or ga.js
AnalyticsProvider.useEnhancedLinkAttribution(true);

AnalyticsProvider.setExperimentId('12345');
// Set custom cookie parameters for analytics.js
AnalyticsProvider.setCookieConfig({
  cookieDomain: 'foo.example.com',
  cookieName: 'myNewName',
  cookieExpires: 20000
});
// Change the default page event name. This is useful for ui-router, which fires $stateChangeSuccess instead of $routeChangeSuccess
AnalyticsProvider.setPageEvent('$stateChangeSuccess');
// Delay script tage creation...must manually call Analytics.createScriptTag() or Analytics.createAnalyticsScriptTag() to enable analytics
AnalyticsProvider.delayScriptTag(true);

AdBlock EasyPrivacy

AdBlock has a module named EasyPrivacy that is meant to block web tracking scripts. angular-google-analytics.js gets filtered out by the EasyPrivacy blacklist.

Users who are already concatenating and minifying their scripts should not notice a problem as long as the new script name is not also on the EasyPrivacy blacklist. Alternatively, consider changing the filename manually.

As AngularJS itself, this module is released under the permissive MIT license. Your contributions are always welcome.
