piwik

DESCRIPTION:

A simple Ruby client for the Piwik API.

FEATURES/PROBLEMS:

  • Object-oriented interface to the Piwik API;
  • For now, only a small subset of the API is implemented (only basic actions)

SYNOPSIS:

Piwik is an open source web analytics software, written in PHP. It provides an extensive REST-like API, and this gem aims to be a simple Ruby wrapper to access this API in a Ruby-friendly way. For example:

  >> require 'rubygems'
  => []
  >> require 'piwik'
  => []
  >> site = Piwik::Site.load(1, 'http://your.piwi.install', 'some_auth_key')
  => #<Piwik::Site:0xb74bf994 @name="Example.com", @config={:auth_token=>"some_auth_key", :piwik_url=>"http://your.piwi.install"}, @id=1, @main_url="http://www.example.com", @created_at=Tue Jul 15 18:55:40 -0300 2008>
  >> site.pageviews(:month, Date.today)
  => 88

See the Piwik::Site RDoc for full documentation.

For more information on Piwik and it‘s API, see the Piwik website (piwik.org) and the Piwik API reference (dev.piwik.org/trac/wiki/API/Reference).
