The Wide Angle Analytics provides an instance of waa which can be then injected to your component.

import { useWideAngle } from '#imports'

useWideAngle('purchase', {'basket_value': '45.00'})

You will find a fully functional example in this repository.

Tracking Pageviews

No action necessary. The tracker script automatically issues Page View and Page Leave events.

Tracking Events

Wide Angle supports three specialized events:

  • clicks
  • downloads
  • custom actions

Site has to have these event enable in Wide Angle Analytics configuration prior to usage. Otherwise the tracker script will not sent these events. Consult official documentation regarding how to enable event handling.

Tracking Clicks

Currently Click Events are emitted automatically based on element data attributes.

Tracking Downloads

Depending on the configured mode, the Download Event will fire automatically when either:

  • a file with recognized extension is being downloaded, or
  • when a link is marked with data-waa-name attribute.

Tracking Custom Actions

Custom action are the most flexible and can be triggered directly from Vue components. As such their usage is not limitted due to Shadow DOM.


  <button @click="sendEvent()">Send Event</button>    

<script setup>
import { useWaaEvent } from '#imports'
const sendEvent = async () => {
  const params = {
    session: 'cjhw92nf9aq',
    cohort: 'c1233'
  useWaaEvent('interest', params);
