PostHog makes it easy to get data about traffic and usage of your Framer app. Integrating PostHog into your site enables analytics about user behavior, custom events capture, session recordings, feature flags, and more.

This guide walks you through integrating PostHog into your Framer app using the JavaScript Web SDK.


Go to your project settings and copy your web snippet. It looks like this:

!function(t,e){var o,n,p,r;e.__SV||(window.posthog=e,e._i=[],e.init=function(i,s,a){function g(t,e){var o=e.split(".");2==o.length&&(t=t[o[0]],e=o[1]),t[e]=function(){t.push([e].concat(,0)))}}(p=t.createElement("script")).type="text/javascript",p.async=!0,p.src=s.api_host+"/static/array.js",(r=t.getElementsByTagName("script")[0]).parentNode.insertBefore(p,r);var u=e;for(void 0!==a?u=e[a]=[]:a="posthog",u.people=u.people||[],u.toString=function(t){var e="posthog";return"posthog"!==a&&(e+="."+a),t||(e+=" (stub)"),e},u.people.toString=function(){return u.toString(1)+".people (stub)"},o="capture identify alias people.set people.set_once set_config register register_once unregister opt_out_capturing has_opted_out_capturing opt_in_capturing reset isFeatureEnabled onFeatureFlags getFeatureFlag getFeatureFlagPayload reloadFeatureFlags group updateEarlyAccessFeatureEnrollment getEarlyAccessFeatures getActiveMatchingSurveys getSurveys onSessionId".split(" "),n=0;n<o.length;n++)g(u,o[n]);e._i.push([i,s,a])},e.__SV=1)}(document,window.posthog||[]);

With the snippet copied, go to your Framer project settings by clicking the gear in the top right. If you haven’t already, sign up for the "Mini" site plan. This enables you to add custom code.

Go to the General tab in site settings and scroll down to the Custom Code section. Under End of <head> tag, paste your PostHog snippet. Make sure to press Save next to custom code.

Finally, publish your site.

Capture custom events

To capture custom events, you call posthog.capture() using custom code components in Framer.

Go to the Assets tab in the top left of your Framer project, and click the plus icon next to the Code tab. This will show a pop up to create a new code file. Name the file CaptureButton, set it as a "New component" and press "Create."

In the new code file, delete the existing code and replace it with the following:

export default function CaptureButton() {
const handleClick = () => {
window.posthog.capture("clicked_button", {
$set_once: { clicked_homepage_button: true },
return (
<button id="capture-button" onClick={handleClick}>
Click me

Press Cmd/Ctrl + s to save your changes. Then press the Home button to go back to the home page. Add your new CaptureButton to your page by dragging it from the Code tab.

Publish your site and then click your new button to see the event in PostHog.

Thanks to Ritesh Kadmawala for building this! GitHub: posthog/gatsby-plugin-posthog Gatsby behaves like a single-page app which means to track $pageview events special care is needed. This integration takes care of that. Install or How to use This will automatically start tracking pageviews, clicks and more. In your code you can access posthog via window.posthog .
