Tauri Plugin for Aptabase

This plugin allows you to instrument your app with events that can be analyzed in Aptabase, an Open Source, Privacy-First, and Simple Analytics for Mobile, Desktop, and Web Apps.


Install the Core plugin by adding the following to your Cargo.toml file:


tauri-plugin-aptabase = "0.4"

You can install the JavaScript Guest bindings using your preferred JavaScript package manager

npm add @aptabase/tauri


First, you need to get your App Key from Aptabase, you can find it in the Instructions menu on the left side menu.

Then you need to register the core plugin with Tauri:


fn main() {
        .plugin(tauri_plugin_aptabase::Builder::new("<YOUR_APP_KEY>").build()) // 👈 this is where you enter your App Key
        .expect("error while running tauri application");

You can then start sending events from Rust by importing the tauri_plugin_aptabase::EventTracker trait and calling the track_event method on App, AppHandle or Window.

As an example, you can add app_started and app_exited events like this:

use tauri_plugin_aptabase::EventTracker;

fn main() {
        .setup(|app| {
            app.track_event("app_started", None);
        .expect("error while running tauri application")
        .run(|handler, event| match event {
            tauri::RunEvent::Exit { .. } => {
                handler.track_event("app_exited", None);
            _ => {}

The trackEvent function is also available through the JavaScript guest bindings:

import { trackEvent } from "@aptabase/tauri";

trackEvent("save_settings") // An event with no properties
trackEvent("screen_view", { name: "Settings" }) // An event with a custom property

A few important notes:

  1. The plugin will automatically enhance the event with some useful information, like the OS, the app version, and other things.
  2. You're in control of what gets sent to Aptabase. This plugin does not automatically track any events, you need to call trackEvent manually.
    • Because of this, it's generally recommended to at least track an event at startup
  3. You do not need to await for the trackEvent function, it'll run in the background.
  4. Only strings and numbers values are allowed on custom properties
