Upgrade or replicate phpMyVisites plugin to Piwik
Last modified: 2011-11-09 21:49:34 PST
We will have to allow for those users who will not move to Piwik (at least for the time being). My suggestion would be to copy this plugin and replicate it as a "Piwik" plugin, rather than upgrade/overhaul the phpMyVisites plugin. The other option would be to extend the plugin to work with both via a toggle or somesuch.
If the former is the better way to go, and since Piwik appears to be currently listed as 'alpha', perhaps the best place for the new plugin would be the plugin gallery. If so, I can take this on.
I would suggest duplicating the plugin (we've been through three renames now with OpenX, and the name mismatch does cause confusion). However, I'd suggest waiting until we're nearer to the next release, as this is a quick task and that way we won't have to maintain both copies.
Piwik is still under heavy development and some users may wish to stay using the latest stable release of phpmyvisites (or never switch). I would suggest a new and separate plugin for this altogether so that users can chose b/w GA, phpmv, or piwik.
I don't think that piwik is a replacement for phpmv in a release sense, so much as the lead developer of phpmv has moved over to the piwik project and development has generally stopped with the latest stable phpmv (2.3) which is still widely used and available.
Since it sounds like replicating the plugin sounds like the way to go, and so should be possible for me to do, I don't mind taking this on. I'll post what I come up with to the plugin gallery first (and append a link here when it's up); when we approach a new release date, we can decide whether to include in the code base or not.
Juan, if Piwik's still under heavy development, it's probably worth waiting until it's stabilized a little more; otherwise we'll probably have to play catch-up later on.
In any case, I won't be rushing this out -- but it'll probably be a worthy learning project for me.
James, Juan, whatever -- you techies all look the same to me.
Vlilloh beat me to it:
Piwik Plugin in our plugin gallery: http://pkp.sfu.ca/support/forum/viewtopic.php?f=28&p=14998#p14998
I think it's safe to close this now -- if at a later date we decide to include the Piwik plugin in the core codebase, we can reopen.
Add Piwik plugin to OJS
Closing -- this includes new locale files, so not committing to stable. Thanks to Vicente, Luiz, and Andrea for contributions to this plugin!
