Eg. in a background job etc?
I would like to decouple it from model/controller.

I also thought about this, especially in the context of using it in a Sinatra app.
The basic problem impressionist is trying to solve is to make analytics data yours:

The goal of this project is to provide customizable stats that are immediately accessible in your application as
opposed to using Google Analytics and pulling data using their API.

Currently we're seeing a trend that analytics is heavily abstracted (analytics.js / segment.io) and I'm wondering if it would make sense to write some kind of analytics.js compatible server application that can be used to collect analytics data from a bunch of different sources.
This would probably be a different project than what impressionist is now but I'm really just thinking out loud and would love to hear your opinions.

This seems like it should be possible but it’s definitely taking this project in a new direction. What do you think about creating a 2-0 branch and spiking out your ideas there?

Actually I even think that it might be confusing to do this under the same
name. I just wanted to bounce off the idea here and talk about it to
others. I'm also not an analytics pro so I'd like to verify my assumptions
in the process.
