TinyAnalytics is a lightweight web analytics tool based on the idea that:

  • The two most useful things are: number of unique visitors per day (with a nice chart) and list of referers who send some traffic to your websites,

  • It should give the idea of the traffic, even for multiple websites, on a single dashboard (without having to click in lots of menu items to change the currently displayed website, etc.),

  • It should be fast and lightweight.

If you're looking for more informations than those (such as country, browser, screen resolution, time spent on a page, etc.), then TinyAnalytics is not the right tool for you. Please try Google Analytics, Open Web Analytics or Piwik instead. I personally found the two last ones not very handy for me.

After years, I've noticed that I prefer to have few (important) informations that I can consult each day in 30 seconds, rather than lots of informations for which I would need 15 or 30 minutes per day for an in-depth analysis.


There are three easy steps:

  1. Unzip this package to a host accessible with https.

  2. Add the following tracking code to your websites at the end of files:

    const xhr = new XMLHttpRequest();'POST', 'https:// myhost /req.php');
    xhr.setRequestHeader('Content-Type', 'application/json');
    xhr.send(JSON.stringify({ "sn": "my-website-name" , "ref": document.referrer }));
  1. Modify your password in config.php and set the allowed domains there.

It's done! Visit at least one of your tracked websites, and open https:// myhost /index.php in your browser!
