Piwik

  • Integrate Piwik in your Joomla! site, while not using any client-side code.
  • Compliant with EU cookie-regulations.

Piwik is not only powerful because it offers a self-hosted replacement for GoogleAnalytics. But it also offers non-JavaScript-based statistics, based on an PHP API, which bypasses the new cookie-regulations of the EU. This plugin does not offer the JavaScript-based solution, it only offers the PHP API. And it works great!

Piwik is a great open source web analytics tool, that offers you to install the analytics software on your own webserver - allowing full control over all data. Various Joomla! solutions already existed to integrate Piwik into Joomla!, but none of them were using the holy grail of Piwik: Piwik offers an API that allows analytics-data to be gathered, without the need of client-side scripts (JavaScript) or client-side cookies.

FAQ: What is the difference between the normal Piwik widget and this plugin?

Usually Piwik is integrated through a JavaScript widget, which sets a cookie in the browser. This Piwik plugin works through the PHP API, and works without cookies. Note that the PHP API is not aware of JavaScript-measured statistics like screen resolution. If you want to know more about difference, please refer to the Piwik website.
