With the July 1 2023 date fast approaching for the google analytics UA property types to be a thing of the past. I did some reading today about using the google analytics embed API to build a new page for GA4. However the embed API does not support GA4. I have read other articles of how to do this since i have never coded one before but for the most part it appears the new GA4 is far from user friendly. What they offer is the analytics reporting API which is way over my head in understanding and is also way too powerful for what i need. I dont need to push data or run different reports, i just want a dashboard page with data. The other option is the analytics data API which again seems very complicated. Youtube is not much help because alot of them cover the old UA property and they also push third party "pay to play" type scripts that i dont want to use. I wanted to use PHP and JSON and JS to do this. Has anyone tackled this for GA4 yet. I am not asking for free code just to point me in the right direction so i can get started without having to jump ship midway because i used the wrong API. Any help would be appreciated.... thanks :)
