Countly is an innovative, real-time, open source mobile & web analytics, push notifications and crash reporting platform powering nearly 3000 mobile applications. It collects data from mobile phones, tablets, Apple Watch and other internet-connected devices, and visualizes this information to analyze mobile application usage and end-user behavior.
There are two parts of Countly: the server that collects and analyzes data, and an SDK (mobile, web or desktop) that sends this data. This repository includes Countly Community Edition (server side). For more information other versions (e.g Enterprise Edition), see comparison of different Countly editions
Countly supports top-notch devices, including iOS, Android, Windows Phone and web apps. You can find a list of official and community supported Countly SDK libraries here. Each SDK has its own installation instructions.
Installing & upgrading Countly server
There are several ways to install Countly:
The following command will download and install Countly on your Ubuntu or CentOS server.
wget -qO- http://c.ly/install | bash
If you have a Digital Ocean account, click here and install on Digital Ocean with a single click.
For bash lovers, we provide a beautiful installation script (
bin/countly.install.sh) in countly-server package which installs everything required to run Countly Server. For this, you need a stable release of this repository available here.
If you want to upgrade Countly from a previous version, please take a look at upgrading documentation.
We develop and test Countly on Ubuntu with MongoDB, Node.js and Nginx. Installation script only needs a clean, decent Ubuntu Linux without any services listening to port 80 and takes care of every library and software required to be installed on Ubuntu Linux.
API & Frontend
Countly has a well defined API, that reads from or writes to Node.js. Dashboard is built using this API, so it's possible to fetch any kind of information from Node process directly using Countly API. For those who are interested with building their own dashboard; important files are:
frontend/express/app.js, Countly dashboard that runs on Express server
countly.session.js, responsible for calculating session related metrics and
api/api.js, which is Countly write and read API.
