Embed Google Analytics code for some environments only

When you use google analytics to track your visitors interactions, you should ensure that it runs on your production site only. Otherwise it will spoil your statistics. To prevent this, test for the right environment and place the JS-code afterwards:

Copy
- if Rails.env.production? :javascript var _gaq = _gaq || []; _gaq.push(['_setAccount', 'UA-XXXXXXXX-X']); _gaq.push(['_trackPageview']); ...

By refactoring problematic code and creating automated tests, makandra can vastly improve the maintainability of your Rails application.
