The useUser() hook enables you to add properties and send tracking events to the current user.

About this hook

The hook contains the following methods:

track(eventName: string, properties?: Record<string, unknown>)
Promise that sends tracking events for the current user
addProperties(properties: Record<string, unknown>)
Promise that adds properties to the current user

Update the userID in the top-level Frigade.Provider component to change users

Example use cases:

  • Tracking events and adding properties to the current user for using with Targeting
  • Wrapping the track method with your existing tracking/analytics methods

Example usage:

import { useUser } from "@frigade/react";

function MyComponent() {
  const { track } = useUser();

  useEffect(() => {
    track("MyComponent Viewed");
  }, []);

  return <div>My Component</div>;
Make sure to call any Frigade hook within the context of <Frigade.Provider />
