Customizing for different type of analytics


(mobilepush) #1

Hello,

Was wondering if anyone can advise if it will be easy and possible to customize Piwik for not necessarily doing web traffic analysis for web site but for customized actions within a software application and embedding some a library within each distribution of this software. Scope is to harvest information of the use of this software and the users locations, & action of events they may trigger within it.

Any feedback, advise how to get kickstarted and what to consider or to keep an eye out for, will greatly be appreciated.

btw: what ajax toolkit has Piwik used in its development? Looks great style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.gif

Regards,
George

You can use Piwik as a data store for all actions that people execute. There is no “API” but we could build one (there is a ticket on http://dev.piwik.org/trac/ticket/134 )
In the meantime you can manually send HTTP requests to piwik.php passing the right parameters.
