Write PageViewInfo and Matomo integration
Closed, DeclinedPublic

Description

PageViewInfoGA is an example that integrates PageViewInfo to Google Analytics. It redefines PageViewService.

The same thing can be possible with Matomo maybe. In this approach, the required webservice mentioned on T5431#103574 would not be required.

This is an interesting way to do this. I have no idea how though...

Universal_Omega moved this task from Backlog to Short Term on the MediaWiki (SRE) board.

Matomo doesn't even collect per page info, so I'm not exactly sure how this would really be doable here. Although this is a bit out of my expertise. Do you have any suggestions here, since you are the developer of PageViewInfoGA?

Oops, I didn't know that. Then, we could still implement siteviews and mostviewed APIs[1] as a PageViewService subclass can choose which statistics it supports. If there is no data for that too, I would agree this task is not a doable thing.

1: here are examples: siteviews and mostviewed on MediaWiki wiki

https://meta.miraheze.org/wiki/Special:Analytics is the information it does collect. So I don't think it even collects those, unless I am misunderstanding that.

Well it collects site views, but I don't know how useful/worthwhile doing this is just for that.

This is specific for wikimedia

It doesn't work without external service integration. This task is about the potential integration into MatomoAnalytics.

True, I just saw it. So how so? Will the extension have the same functionality?

Matomo doesn't collect enough information for doing this to be fully worthwhile in my opinion, as it wouldn't provide the best stats that are actually useful to users. Nothing beyond what MatomoAnalytics can already do. So I'm not really sure how to go about this task.

I have a question: When I google it, there are search results describing pageviews of Matomo. Is it what you said the instance of Miraheze especially does not collect pageviews by the policy? (I'm sorry for not having experience with Matomo)

Miraheze does not. Matomo might support it but it doesn't seem we do, unfortunately.

Thank you all for the comments. I close this because the usage is unclear.
