Fugu: Property Breakdown

An important part of Fugu is that you can save custom properties along with your event. Your HTTP request body might look like this:

  "api_key": "very_secret",
  "name": "Fun event",
  "properties": {
    "color": "Blue",
    "type": "Oak"

With the property breakdown feature, you can break down each event’s property to their values. For example, if you have events with "Blue", "Red", "Green" as values for its "color" property, the breakdown view will show a separate line for each property value.

Have a look at this video to see it in action (with my boring test data):

Fugu only allows one level of nesting. The values will always be saved as strings. I think that this will suffice for most use cases, and adding more complexity with a multi-level property values breakdown feature is not something I want to get into.

If you want to see how it is implemented, head over to the repo and have a look. I welcome any comments on the code itself - just open a GitHub issue.

This was the last “big” feature I wanted to build before getting ready for Fugu’s public launch. Now, the only things left to do are to add a billing system (Stripe) and pretty up the UI and UX.

If you want to give this early version a free spin, head over to the GitHub repo and follow the readme to sign up. Make sure to drop me an email with your feedback: canolcer@hey.com
