Adding script in Publish website

Forums > Swift



i am building a website using Publish and swift. As I want to have some analytics, I have signed up for google analytics, and got some scripts.

my questions is, how do I add the script to my site, and better, where should I add it so thatvit will cover my whole website?




.head node accepts customElements and you should add it there, eg.

.head(for: location, on:, stylesheetPaths: [Path("styles.css?v=13")], customElements: [
                <!-- Global site tag (gtag.js) - Google Analytics -->
                <script async src=""></script>
                  window.dataLayer = window.dataLayer || [];
                  function gtag(){dataLayer.push(arguments);}
                  gtag('js', new Date());

                  gtag('config', 'UA-xxxxxxxx-1');



thx @artrmz !! do I need to add that script to all .heads? or only in the makeIndexHTML function?


All the pages should have .head node as it includes styles etc so yeah, add it to all. Of course, the best idea would be to create a common .head and reuse it everwhere.



how should I create a reusable .head? I should just add a .head to all makeXHTML functions in my theme, correct?


Well, you can eg. create a function or computed variable that will return .head with all the things you need for each page.
