Release notes

PostHog Android Library

In addition to the work Marius put into the iOS integration, this week you can also capture events in your Android app and send them to PostHog. Like the iOS library you can automatically captures screen changes, and you can capture events as per usual

Check out our Android docs on how to install it on your app.

Gatsby Plugin

This week also sees the first community contributed plugin – thank you Ritesh Kadmawala.

It’s now very easy in Gatsby’s words to “make your blazing fast site even more awesome.”

URL Wildcards

A user came to Tim with a problem, due to the nature of their site pages could be the same but have different url/paths – wildcards felt like an easy way of overcoming this so Tim merged this pr.

You can now use % as a wildcard when setting up an action.

As you’ll see below we have continued with our AntD implementation but this comes with also considering how to improve the Trends page as we now default to Trends when you login.

Moving the bar to the left allows users to easily engage with the Trends graphs as they filter by Actions and Events.

Eric mentioned when we added the stickiness explanation in Trends it was one of the most transformative updates in that release as he had to check the docs to remind himself of what he was measuring.

After a customer interview Aaron and Tim realized this was true for trends in general so we added Trends hints.

Sort events table by timestamp

This is another PR this week that we have the community to thank for, solnsubuga felt that clicking the table header for the timestamp should sort the events in reverse order, and we agreed.

Performance updates

  • Eric added a strict flake8 setup as well as improvements, laying the ground work for code linting and likely more prs regarding darker.
  • Upgraded Kea to 2.0.0-beta.5.
  • We continue to implement AntD as above in Setup.

Favorite issue

Copy to clipboard feature for scripts/docs #661

Thank you sac0 for opening this issue then after a quick discussion with Tim closed it.

Great to see updates built on the work we have done so far that ensures PostHog is better to use for the entire community.

PR of the week

Flake8 setup and improvements

What makes it the PR of the week is the discussion it started in our repo, it was awesome to see an active discussion on how to make it easier to contribute, potential usage of black and darker for code formatting and a resolution that improves the PostHog project.
