ProcessGoogleAnalytics

Recommended Posts

Hi!
Just finished my first module :)
This module adds a new "Google-Analytics" Page in your Admin-Panel and displays various Statistics from a Google Analytics Account.
It uses the JQuery plugin "jqplot" to display the charts.

Github: https://github.com/w...GoogleAnalytics
Modules directory: http://modules.proce...ogle-analytics/

Features

  • Visits by Date (Chart)
  • General Statistics about Visits (Total visits, Visit duration, New visitors, Returning visitors etc.)
  • Demographics: Countries, Cities, Languages
  • System: Browsers, Operating Systems, Screen Resolutions
  • Mobile: Operating Systems, Screen Resolutions
  • Pageviews by Date (Chart)
  • Top Content
  • Traffic Sources: Keywords, Referral Traffic by Domain and URI
  • Choose a default date range displaying statistics: last 24 hours, 2 days, 1 week, 1 month etc.
  • Custom date range by setting a "start date" and "end date"

Requirements

  • Google Account and Analytics Account :P
  • A Project in the Google APIs Console
  • cURL

Installation

1) Create a Project in the Google APIs Console:

  • Create a new Project in the APIs Console: code.google.com/apis/console/
  • Under Services, enable the Analytics API
  • Under API Access: create an Oauth 2.0 Client-ID
  • Give a Product Name, choose "Web-Application", Domain doesn't matter
  • Enter a Redirect URI to the GA-Page in your Processwire Installation:
    http://yourdomain.com/processwire/google-analytics/

Notes:

  • The redirect URI must exactly match with the URL from the new "Google Analytics" page in Processwire. Open the Page and copy the URL from the address-bar (localhost does work too!)
  • The project created in the APIs Console can be reused for every Processwire installation using this module. You just have to enter more redirect URIs

2) Install the module:

  • Place the module's files in /site/modules/ProcessGoogleAnalytics
  • Install the Module via the Admin-Panel
  • Enter Client-ID and Client-Secret keys from the created project in the module config
  • Load the newly created page "Google-Analytics" and click on the button "authenticate"
  • Grant the module access to the Analytics Data
  • Choose a Google Analytics account (Domain) from the dropdown
  • Done: You should see the statistics. Check out the module config options for further customization

In order to let other users see the Google Analytics page, you must give their role access to the "ga-view" permission.

Ps. Processwire is awesome and so is this community! :)

Awesome! I also wanted to do something similar but didn't really get into it. Looks very nice! Thanks for posting.

Would you mind to put it on modules.processwire.com and create a repository on github?

Thank you guys!

In the meanwhile, the Project is on Github and the modules overview:

http://modules.processwire.com/modules/process-google-analytics/

https://github.com/wanze/ProcessGoogleAnalytics

I never used Github before and had to create an account first, thanks Soma for your Tutorial!

Still I'll have to explore git a bit more ;-)

Please let me know what you think and if it works for you!

One feature that is on the Roadmap:

Compare the statistics taken from the last month (Audience) with the previous month and show +/- percentage

Wanze, welcome to the forums!

Great start! I tried your module on my localhost and it seems to work, though I don't have any statistics here.

When I load the Google Analytics page for the first time I get several notices:

Notice: Undefined index: ga:returningVisits in D:\webdev\xampp\htdocs\P21\site\modules\ProcessGoogleAnalytics\ProcessGoogleAnalytics.module on line 227
Notice: Undefined index: rows in D:\webdev\xampp\htdocs\P21\site\modules\ProcessGoogleAnalytics\ProcessGoogleAnalytics.module on line 298
Notice: Undefined index: rows in D:\webdev\xampp\htdocs\P21\site\modules\ProcessGoogleAnalytics\ProcessGoogleAnalytics.module on line 299

But they dissapear after I refresh the page, so I guess it has something to do with caching.

Also after installation I get this notice untill I've filled all fields and saved:

Notice: Undefined index: accountId in D:\webdev\xampp\htdocs\P21\site\modules\ProcessGoogleAnalytics\ProcessGoogleAnalytics.module on line 877

And also for some reason it breaks page encoding (cyrillic symbols don't display properly).

Wanted to mention you can specify what modules are required by your module and what modules it installs in the array returned by getModuleInfo():

return array(
'title' => '',
'version' => 001,
'summary' => '',
'requires' => 'MarkupCache',
'installs' => 'MarkupCache', //not sure about this one
);

Not sure though whether it should require or instead maybe install MarkupCache, I guess it shoud just require it. See more here.

Thank you for your module! I've never dealt with GA before, and I guess now's the time :)

Just installed this one and it works like a charm! Really nice and very polished work. Very nice that it is already multilang friendly!

Few ideas for further development:

  • There are quite a lot stuff on screen. It might be nicer UI if you would use tabs instead of folding for main categories (audience, content, traffic sources)
  • Showing current month is what I usually want, but it would be nice to have ability to choose date range
  • Link to Google Analytics when you want to dive deeper into the analytics
  • Consider using strftime instead of date - that would allow local month names etc for other languages than English. Not necessary though, since one could always define numeric only dates (like 9.8.2012) http://www.php.net/manual/en/function.strftime.ph

Awesome module and really nicely produced! Thanks for making this.

I ran into a couple really minor things, but figured I'd mention them before I forget. :)

1. Saw a couple PHP notices at the top of the screen, but can't remember exactly at what part. However, I'm guessing anyone with debug mode on will see the same.

2. Getting an overflow on the search keywords screen:

Great job with the module and the code.

Thank you all for testing and the feedback!

I'll fix the PHP warnings with the notices, maybe this will also sort out the

problem with cyrillic symbols.

2. Getting an overflow on the search keywords screen:

Ryan, I guess this is caused by a long keyword without spaces?

Great ideas!

Trying to implement all of this in the next versions.

I originally also wanted to use Tabs for the main sections, but I think

the charts have some problems rendering correctly if they're in a hidden div,

so I went with this simpler solution. But you're right, there is definitely too much on the screen right now!

Now it's time to find some examples using WireTabs :)

Great! WireTabs are super simple and work just like those other wrappers. Also simpler solution might be to just collapse others than first section.

It's also just fine to use jQuery UI tabs if you prefer. WireTabs are mainly useful for tabbing PW's Inputfields, which jQuery UI tabs don't let themselves as well to.

Just updated the Module to version 1.1 on Github and Modules Section of Pw!

New Features / Optimizations

  • Better UI with tabs for the main categories (Audience, Content, Traffic sources)
  • New options section: You can change the date range for your Statistics
  • "strftime" used instead of "date" for the date range in header
  • Fixed PHP notice errors

There changed some module default config options + I added an option to set the format for the InputfieldDatetime fields. So I guess you should uninstall and install the whole module again to avoid errors.

Sometimes I'm not sure if use the right words for my lables and descriptions, as I'm not a native english speaker/writer.

So if anybody sees typo errors or a description that makes no sense, please tell me.

It's also just fine to use jQuery UI tabs if you prefer. WireTabs are mainly useful for tabbing PW's Inputfields, which jQuery UI tabs don't let themselves as well to.

I ended up using WireTabs, amazing simple to implement as everything with Processwire! =)

Wish you all a nice day (night or whatever), I'm going swimming now here :P :

Great update! I love the way it works with the tabs now. Not seeing the overflow issue anymore either. This covers about 90% of the things I use GA for. This module will get a lot of use for sure. :)

Thank you Ryan, glad you like it!

Do you think I could implement the missing 10% somehow? :)

What do you think about resetting the custom dates?

Currently you have to check a checkbox to reset, afterwards the Module is using again the last month from today as date range (default behaviour).

Should this reset be done automatically after some time?

I don't see any error on your screenshot, only notices and warnings. May because debug enabled? Wanze you don't have debug on?

Hmm for some reason the module could not fetch the statistics. I need to implement a check if the results are returned correctly as an array and display an error message otherwise.

Sevraf2, were you able to choose the GA Account from the dropdown before?

Have you customized the date range or any date format settings?

Can you do some checks in the module config options:

  • Client ID, Client Secret, API Key correct?
  • Google Analytics Account Id should now have a value like "ga:xxxxxxxx"

@Soma

I have debug mode enabled, but the statistics always came up fine ;-)

Will implement the check soon!

That's because the results were getting cached. But you still don't see any Statistics, right?

I think there has to be an error in your setup somewhere. Tested also the date "d-m-Y", works fine here on my local installation.

Will check if Google reports back some error codes in case something went wrong with the query params...

Edit:

If you want to do some more testing, you should disable caching the output:

1) Delete the folders starting with "ga_" in site/assets/cache/MarkupCache

2) In the Module Options, set Cache Time to "0"

The scope of Google Analytics is so broad, I don't think I'd ever expect something outside the GA app itself to implement it. Take the Real Time features for instance. You've done a great job of implementing the most important and most useful stuff. If I had to wish for anything it would only be that I could get more detail on the referrers. Like when I see a new referrer show up, I'd love to click to see the URL where the referring link actually exists. Sometimes I can't even do this in GA since it strips URL variables... leaving me to grep my access log to find the actual referring URL. But if there's some way to see not just the domain, but the path too, that would provide the same level of detail present in GA.

What do you think about resetting the custom dates? Currently you have to check a checkbox to reset, afterwards the Module is using again the last month from today as date range (default behaviour). Should this reset be done automatically after some time?

I'm not sure what the best behavior would be here, as I'm guessing everyone has their own workflow and timeline they want to look at in GA. But I do know that the first thing I do when I get into GA is to set a date range. It's rare that I want to look at the last month or year. Usually I want the last 24 hours, last 2 days, last week, etc. I've often wished that GA had a select box where I could choose "last 24 hours" for instance, rather than having to select starting and ending dates.

      TrelloWire
      This is a module that allows you to automatically create Trello cards for ProcessWire pages and update them when the pages are updated. This allows you to setup connected workflows. Card properties and change handling behaviour can be customized through the extensive module configuration. Every action the module performs is hookable, so you can modify when and how cards are created as much as you need to. The module also contains an API-component that makes it easy to make requests to the Trello API and build your own connected ProcessWire-Trello workflows.
      Features
      All the things the module can do for you without any custom code: Create a new card on Trello whenever a page is added or published (you can select applicable templates). Configure the target board, target list, name and description for new cards. Add default labels and checklists to the card. Update the card whenever the page is updated (optional). When the status of the card changes (published / unpublished, hidden / unhidden, trashed / restored or deleted), move the card to a different list or archive or delete it (configurable). You can extend this through hooks in many ways: Modifiy when and how cards are created. Modify the card properties (Target board & list, title, description, et c.) before they are sent to Trello. Create your own workflows by utilizing an API helper class with many convenient utility methods to access the Trello API directly. Feedback & Future Plans
      Let me know what you think! In particular:
      If you find any bugs report them here or on Github, I'll try to fix them. This module was born out of a use-case for a client project where we manage new form submissions through Trello. I'm not sure how many use-cases there are for this module. If you do use it, tell me about it! The Trello API is pretty extensive, I'll try to add some more helper methods to the TrelloWireApi class (let me know if you need anything in particular). I'll think about how the module can support different workflows that include Twig – talk to me if you have a use-case! Next steps could be a dashboard to manage pages that are connected to a Trello card, or a new section in the settings tab to manage the Trello connection. But it depends on whether there is any interest in this 🙂 Links

      Process Cache Control
      This module provides a simple solution to clearing all your cache layers at once, and an extensible interface to perform various cache-related actions.
      The simple motivation behind this module was that I was tired of manually clearing caches in several places after deploying a change on a live site. The basic purpose of this module is a simple Clear all caches link in the Setup menu which clears out all caches, no matter where they hide. You can customize what exactly the module does through it's configuration menu:
      Expire or delete all cache entries in the database, or selectively clear caches by namespace ($cache API) Clear the the template render cache. Clear out specific folders inside your site's cache directory (/site/assets/cache) Clear the ProCache page render cache (if your site is using ProCache) Refresh version strings for static assets to bust client-side browser caches (this requires some setup, see the full documentation for details). This is the basic function of the module. However, you can also add different cache management action through the API and execute them through the module's interface. For this advanced usage, the module provides:
      An interface to see all available cache actions and execute them. A system log and logging output on the module page to see verify what the module is doing. A CacheControlTools class with utility functions to clear out different caches. An API to add cache actions, execute them programmatically and even modify the default action. Permission management, allowing you granular control over which user roles can execute which actions. The complete documentation can be found in the module's README.
      Plans for improvements
      If there is some interest in this, I plan to expand this to a more general cache management solution. I particular, I would like to add additional cache actions. Some ideas that came to mind:
      Warming up the template render cache for publicly accessible pages. Removing all active user sessions. Let me know if you have more suggestions!

      PrevNextTabs Module
      Github: https://github.com/outflux3/PrevNextTabs
      Processwire helper modules for adding page navigation within the editor.
      Overview
      This is a very simple module that adds Previous and Next links inline with the tabs on the page editor. Hovering over the tab shows the title of the previous or next page (using the admin's built in jqueryUI tooltips.)
      Usage
      This module is typically used during development where you or your editors need to traverse through pages for the purpose of proofing, flagging and/or commenting. Rather than returning to the page tree or lister, they can navigate with these links.
      Warnings
      If you are using PW version 2.6.1 or later, the system will prevent you from leaving the page if you have unsaved edits.
      For earlier versions, to avoid accidentally losing changes made to a page that might occur if a user accidentally clicks on one of these, make sure to have the Form Save Reminder module installed.
