Vendure Metrics plugin

Vendure version

A plugin to measure and visualize your shop’s average order value (AOV),number of orders per month or per week and number of items per product variant for the past 12 months (or weeks) per variants.

Getting started

  1. Configure the plugin in vendure-config.ts:
import { MetricsPlugin, AverageOrderValueMetric, SalesPerProductMetric } from "@pinelab/vendure-plugin-metrics";

plugins: [
  ...
    MetricsPlugin.init({
      metrics: [
        new AverageOrderValueMetric(),
        new SalesPerProductMetric()
      ]
    }),
    AdminUiPlugin.init({
      port: 3002,
      route: 'admin',
      app: compileUiExtensions({
        outputPath: path.join(__dirname, '__admin-ui'),
        extensions: [MetricsPlugin.ui],
      }),
    }),
  ...
]
  1. Start your Vendure server and login as administrator
  2. You should now be able to add the widget metrics on your dashboard.

Metric results are cached in memory to prevent heavy database queries every time a user opens its dashboard.

Default built-in Metrics

  1. Average Order Value (AOV): The average of order.totalWithTax of the orders per week/month
  2. Sales per product: The number of items sold. When no variants are selected, this metric counts the total nr of items per order.

Custom Metrics

You can implement the MetricStrategy interface and pass it to the MetricsPlugin.init() function to have your custom metric visible in the Widget.

// Fictional example that displays the average value per order line per month in a chart

import {
  Injector,
  OrderLine,
  ProductVariant,
  RequestContext,
  TransactionalConnection,
} from '@vendure/core';
import {
  MetricStrategy,
  NamedDatapoint,
  AdvancedMetricType,
} from '@pinelab/vendure-plugin-metrics';

export class AverageOrderLineValue implements MetricStrategy<OrderLine> {
  readonly metricType: AdvancedMetricType = AdvancedMetricType.Currency;
  readonly code = 'average-orderline-value';

  getTitle(ctx: RequestContext): string {
    return `Average Order Line Value`;
  }

  getSortableField(entity: OrderLine): Date {
    return entity.order.orderPlacedAt ?? entity.order.updatedAt;
  }

  // Here you fetch your order lines
  async loadEntities(
    ctx: RequestContext,
    injector: Injector,
    from: Date,
    to: Date,
    variants: ProductVariant[]
  ): Promise<OrderLine[]> {
    let skip = 0;
    const take = 1000;
    let hasMoreOrderLines = true;
    const lines: OrderLine[] = [];
    while (hasMoreOrderLines) {
      let query = injector
        .get(TransactionalConnection)
        .getRepository(ctx, OrderLine)
        .createQueryBuilder('orderLine')
        .leftJoin('orderLine.productVariant', 'productVariant')
        .addSelect(['productVariant.sku', 'productVariant.id'])
        .leftJoinAndSelect('orderLine.order', 'order')
        .leftJoin('order.channels', 'channel')
        .where(`channel.id=:channelId`, { channelId: ctx.channelId })
        .andWhere(`order.orderPlacedAt >= :from`, {
          from: from.toISOString(),
        })
        .andWhere(`order.orderPlacedAt <= :to`, {
          to: to.toISOString(),
        })
        .skip(skip)
        .take(take);
      if (variants.length) {
        query = query.andWhere(`productVariant.id IN(:...variantIds)`, {
          variantIds: variants.map((v) => v.id),
        });
      }
      const [items, totalItems] = await query.getManyAndCount();
      lines.push(...items);
      skip += items.length;
      if (lines.length >= totalItems) {
        hasMoreOrderLines = false;
      }
    }
    return lines;
  }

  // This is where you return the actual data points
  calculateDataPoints(
    ctx: RequestContext,
    lines: OrderLine[],
    // Variants are given when a user is filtering based on variants in the chart widget
    variants: ProductVariant[]
  ): NamedDatapoint[] {
    const legendLabel = variants.length
      ? `Order lines with ${variants.map((v) => v.name).join(', ')}`
      : 'Average order line value';
    if (!lines.length) {
      // Return 0 as average if no order lines
      return [
        {
          legendLabel,
          value: 0,
        },
      ];
    }
    const total = lines
      .map((l) => l.linePriceWithTax)
      .reduce((total, current) => total + current, 0);
    const average = Math.round(total / lines.length) / 100;
    return [
      {
        legendLabel,
        value: average,
      },
    ];
  }
}
