Plugin / blago AIR Badge Clicktracker

Hanneke / BlagoWorks



Inserts the code needed for a custom AIR Install Badge that will track user clicks in real time. The total number of download/installs will be displayed in a dashboard widget.

There are four kinds of user clicks that are being tracked, corresponding to the function that the Badge button has at the moment it’s clicked: “install”, “try again,” “upgrade”, and “launch”. Of these, “install” is of course the most interesting; “try again” could be an aborted install attempt, or impatient users; with “upgrade” the user already has an older version of your app installed; and with “launch”, the app is already up-to-date and installed – this is usually yourself clicking to see if it works 🙂

Note: works with a customized Adobe AIR badge, jQuery, and an older version of swfObject (1.5).

To make it work, you need to add an External Interface call to your AIR Badge. There’s a set of sample files in the zip, or you could follow the Installation notes.

For more info, please visit the AIR Badge plugin page, or an overview of my other plugins


This plugin uses the Sample AIR Badge that was made by Grant Skinner (see Adobe’s DevNet page for more), with the addition of an ExternalInterface call to make the click visible.

Of course, all kudos go to Peter Elst for the original AIR Badge plugin. I reworked his idea into a php-class, added the count display on the configuration page and some garbage disposal for when you de-activate the plugin.
