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:
Unzip this package in a directory, e.g.
Add the following tracking code to your websites at then end of
<?php include '/var/www/TinyAnalytics/tracker.php'; record_visit('mywebsite'); ?>
Modify your password in the first lines of
index.php. Default password is
It's done! Visit at least one of your tracked websites, and open
TinyAnalytics/index.php in your browser!
