The Silktide Analytics API allows you to record events on your websites.

Silktide Analytics will record many common visitor actions by default, including page views, clicks, and file downloads. But sometimes you need advanced control over this behaviour, and for this you will need our API.

This API is intended for web developers with some understanding of JavaScript or a server-side programming language.


Silktide Analytics works by recording Events which are then analysed to produce insights into visitor behaviour.

Advanced users can use our API to trigger new events, including custom events to record visitors completing key actions.

Recording events

You can record events using our built-in events or a custom event of your own.
