In this article we are going to go over Mixpanel, a product for tracking user behavior, and Firebase Realtime Database, a cloud-based database. We are going to look at how the two can be used together in order to achieve a better user experience in regards to data cplection.
In this section of the article we are going to go over how the two applications can be integrated into an existing application.
As stated above, we will be integrating Mixpanel with Firebase Realtime Database.
Firebase Realtime Database is a cloud-based database that stores data in the form of key-value pairs. It provides an API that allows developers to store and query on data, both locally and remotely (Google Cloud. This is done by creating or accessing an instance of FirebaseDatabase and then setting it as our application’s database. This is done using the method getInstance(. . If we don’t want our application to use its own local database, we can simply set it to null instead. With a reference to the database, we can start querying data from it. To do this, we need to create or access an instance of FirebaseDatabaseReference and assign it our database. Then, using methods such as getValue(. , setValue(. , addValue(. , removeValue(. , and clear(. , we can perform operations on the data (Google Firebase.
On the other hand, Mixpanel is a product for tracking user behavior. It offers an analytics dashboard where you can view the statistics of your users. In order to integrate it into our applications we use libraries such as React Native React Native Firebase Analytics or Ionic Native Firebase Analytics. Once the library has been added to our project, we have to create an instance of MixpanelAPI . This will give us access to the Mixpanel methods such as track(. . We use this method in order to track events such as when a user opens or closes a specific screen (Mixpanel Documentation. The first step is to import the library and make an instance of MixpanelAPI . After this, we call track(. passing it two arguments. “screen_viewed” and “view_duration” (React Native Firebase Analytics. If we want to pass custom parameters, we can do so using an object instead of a string. If there are any errors while trying to track an event, they will be logged in conspe. If there aren’t any errors we will see our events being tracked in Mixpanel’s dashboard.
To sum up, we have seen how Mixpanel and Firebase Realtime Database can be integrated with each other. In order to do this, we access their APIs and perform some operations on their data.
In this section of the article we are going to go over how these two products can be beneficial if used together in order to improve the user experience of our applications.
By integrating Mixpanel with Firebase Realtime Database we are able to gather more information about our users which can then be used to improve their experience. For example, by combining both services we can build a detailed user profile that includes information such as first name, last name, city, state/province, country etc. This can be achieved by tracking events that contain such information and saving them along with other events in Firebase Realtime Database. This way, if a user logs in again after not doing so for a long time, he/she won’t have to fill all the information again since all of it will already be saved on Firebase Realtime Database. Another advantage is that by having all the user information stored in a database that is accessible from everywhere even if he/she doesn’t log in we can show him/her relevant content depending on his/her profile that was saved beforehand. For example, if he/she is located in Philadelphia (PA), USA, and he/she didn’t log in for over a year but his/her profile contains his/her age range, interests etc. then he/she will be shown content regarding PA and interests matching his/her age range. On the other hand, if he/she doesn’t want to be shown content that might not interest him/her has the option of logging in so he/she only sees content that he/she wants to see while still having all his/her information saved on Firebase Realtime Database. Mixpanel helps us reach these goals by allowing us to track events that contain such information and then sending them along with other events (e.g login. when they occur in real time (e.g through push notification. By tracking events that contain location information, when a user enters a specific location (e.g Starbucks), Mixpanel helps us identify him/her based on his/her previous visits without having him/her fill anything or logging him/her in. Another example is by tracking purchases made by users (e.g Amazon. and then displaying ads about related products if they visit our app again without logging in. This way users aren’t annoyed by having to fill their information every time they visit our app (e.g writing their address. The benefits mentioned above are just some examples of what one could achieve by integrating both services into an existing app. There are many other implementations out there as well that one can try out depending on his/her application requirements and needs.
In conclusion, we have looked at Mixpanel and Firebase Realtime Database in order to find out what they are and how they can be integrated into an existing application. These two services can allow us to cplect valuable information about our users that help us improve their experience on our application or platform.
