Replacing Legacy Segment Plugins
Everyone has to grow up some time. Early on at Segment, we supported several “plugin sources” to feed data into Segment. These were not actual libraries, but tutorials, explaining how to install Analytics.js (or other analytics libraries) into an application’s source. However, this process was manual and never covered all possible use cases, leading to unsatisfying support outcomes for everyone.
In 2018 we fully deprecated and stopped supporting the following Segment source “plugins”:
This means that they are no longer supported, and Segment cannot be responsible for answering questions about their continued use and maintenance. This page exists to help you find a replacement if you previously used one of these “plugin” methods.
Amazon Webstore was deprecated by Amazon, and no replacement is available.
The Ghost blogging system, maintains their own instructions on how to inject Segment code.
Goodsie ceased operations in 2017. If you are using Shopify Segment offers a website source for that platform. For other platforms, you should integrate using the appropriate Segment Server library for your implementation.
If you are using Shopify, you can use our recommended third-party Segment for Shopify by Littledata Source.
WooCommerce offers a paid Segment plugin to replace prior implementations.
If you are using Wordpress, you have two options.
Regardless of the library you choose, implement your Segment events following the Segment Spec, as usual.
