The following config file will be published in config/laravel-analytics.php
/* * The view id of which you want to display data. */'view_id' => env('ANALYTICS_VIEW_ID'),
/* * Path to the json file with service account credentials. Take a look at the README of this package * to learn how to get this file. */'service_account_credentials_json' => storage_path('app/laravel-google-analytics/service-account-credentials.json'),
/* * The amount of minutes the Google API responses will be cached. * If you set this to zero, the responses won't be cached at all. */'cache_lifetime_in_minutes' => 60 * 24,

How to obtain the credentials to communicate with Google Analytics
The first thing you’ll need to do is to get some credentials to use Google API’s. I’m assuming that you’ve already created a Google account and are signed in. Head over to Google API’s site and click "Select a project" in the header.
Next up we must specify which API’s the project may consume. In the list of available API’s click "Google Analytics API". On the next screen click "Enable".
Now that you’ve created a project that has access to the Analytics API it’s time to download a file with these credentials. Click "Credentials" in the sidebar. You’ll want to create a "Service account key".
On the next screen you can give the service account a name. You can name it anything you’d like. In the service account id you’ll see an email address. We’ll use this email address later on in this guide. Select "JSON" as the key type and click "Create" to download the JSON file.
Save the json inside your Laravel project at the location specified in the service_account_credentials_json key of the config file of this package. Because the json file contains potentially sensitive information I don't recommend committing it to your git repository.
Granting permissions to your Analytics property
I'm assuming that you've already created a Analytics account on the Analytics site. Go to "User management" in the Admin-section of the property.
On this screen you can grant access to the email address found in the client_email key from the json file you download in the previous step. Read only access is enough.
Getting the view id
The last thing you'll have to do is fill in the view_id in the config file. You can get the right value on the Analytics site. Go to "View setting" in the Admin-section of the property.
You'll need the View ID displayed there.
When the installation is done you can easily retrieve Analytics data. Nearly all methods will return an Illuminate\Support\Collection-instance.
Here is an example to retrieve visitors and pageview data for the current day and the last seven days.
