NAME

Dancer2::Plugin::Sixpack - Dancer2's plugin for WWW::Sixpack

DESCRIPTION

This plugin gives you the ability to do A/B testing within Dancer2 easily, using http://sixpack.seatgeek.com/.

It handles the client_id transparantly through Dancer2's Session plugin.

SYNOPSIS

    use Dancer2;
    use Dancer2::Plugin::Sixpack;

    get '/route' => sub {
        my $variant = experiment 'decimal_dot_comma', [ 'comma', 'dot' ];

        $price =~ s/\.(?=[0-9]{2})$/,/
           if( $variant eq 'comma' );
        # ...
    };

    get '/some_click' => sub {
        convert 'decimal_dot_comma', 'click';
        redirect $somewhere;
    };

    get '/confirmation' => sub {
        convert 'decimal_dot_comma';
        # ...
    };

CONFIGURATION

There are no mandatory settings.

    plugins:
      Sixpack:
        host: http://localhost:5000
        experiments:
          decimal_dot_comma:
            - comma
            - dot
          beer:
            - duvel
            - budweiser

The experiments can be generated on the fly without defining them. See below for more information.

KEYWORDS

experiment

Fetch the alternative used for the experiment name passed in.

The experiment and its' alternatives may be defined in the configuration. If they're not defined, the experiment will be created (if you provided the alternatives arrayref).

Examples:

    # experiment defined in config:
    my $variant = exeriment 'known-experiment';

    # experiment not defined
    my $variant = experiment 'on-the-fly', [ 'alt-1', 'alt-2' ];

The client_id will be fetched from session, or generated if needed.

The client's IP address and user agent string are automatically added to the request for bot detection.

Alternatives can be forced by params like "sixpack-force-$experiment=$alt"

Returns the alternative name chosen.

convert

Convert a user.

Provide the experiment and (optional) a KPI to track conversion on. If the KPI doesn't exist yet, it will be created.

When no experiment name is given, we try to fetch the experiments from the user's session and convert on all of the found experiments.

Returns a hashref with { 'experiment' => 'status' }

get_sixpack

Internal method to construct the WWW::Sixpack object.
