Blog: A Woopra plugin for CakePHP

Graham Weldon

05 December, 2011

Tonight I got an email about the Woopra service indicating that they released a new iPhone app that allows you to track visitors and what not. It looks pretty cool, and I thought that might be fun to have one day if the visitors to my site ever get big enough to make the graphs move. For the moment I am throwing it on the SydPHP website, which gets quite a bit of traffic, and I will be checking out the mobile app as soon as I get a chance.

To achieve the result, I created a new CakePHP plugin for Woopra and have made it freely available under the MIT license via Github. Feel free to check it out, download it, try it, and let me know how you go.

Its reasonably configurable, but Woopra allows you to add in pretty much any data you want with customisation of the track calls to their API. I plan to enable to plugin to easily integrate these custom calls in the future, but for the moment, the basic functionality is a good starting point.

If you're using this plugin, let me know. I'm interested to see who adopts it, and if anyone has any suggestions please let me know.

This is also my first blog post since the deployment of my new website. Yay!
