Iris uses the Shopify's goreferrer package to expose the Context.GetReferrer() method.
The GetReferrer method extracts and returns the information from the "Referer" (or "Referrer") header and url query parameter as specified in https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/HTTP/Headers/Referrer-Policy.
GetReferrer() Referrer
Which Referrer looks like that:
type Referrer struct {
Type ReferrerType
Label string
URL string
Subdomain string
Domain string
Tld string
Path string
Query string
GoogleType ReferrerGoogleSearchType
}
The ReferrerType is the enum for a Referrer.Type value (indirect, direct, email, search, social). The available types are:
ReferrerInvalid
ReferrerIndirect
ReferrerDirect
ReferrerEmail
ReferrerSearch
ReferrerSocial
The GoogleType can be one of those:
ReferrerNotGoogleSearch
ReferrerGoogleOrganicSearch
ReferrerGoogleAdwords
