The Gamification module allows to track events stored by Hackathon_FrontendMonitoring and release actions like incrementing points, earn badges or cat stickers for a user.
If we do this the customers will be longer in the shop and buy more stuff.
Just install module, there's a sample data added, which gains you some nice ponys whenever you add something into the cart. To modify that behavior the rules and achievements are managed in the hackathon_gamification_rule table. To track a new event you have to add following snippet for your event in the config.xml to observe that:
<frontend> <!-- we only consider observers in frontend, we don't want gamification in adminhtml (yet) --> <controller_action_predispatch_catalogsearch_result_index> <observers> <hackathon_gamification> <!-- it has to be that name --> <class>hackathon_gamification/observer</class> <!-- always trigger that class --> <method>trackEvent</method> <!-- and that method, it's doing all the magic --> <label>Search query</label> <!-- add a label so your admin knows what this is about --> <condition_form>hackathon_gamification/adminhtml_validator_search_query_form</condition_form> <!-- add a condition form, if you need it for this event, e.g. only track a special search word in the search event --> <validator>hackathon_gamification/validator_search_query</validator> <!-- add a validator for your conditions you entered --> </hackathon_gamification> </observers> </controller_action_predispatch_catalogsearch_result_index> </frontend>
To add a new achievement which can be configured use following sample:
<hackathon_gamification> <achievements> <score_set> <label>Set absolute score</label> <class>hackathon_gamification/achievement_score_set</class> <!-- implement a getForm method on this model, to have a custom form in the adminhtml to add some custom data to this achievement, like the value of score or what badge should be changed --> </score_set> </achievements> </hackathon_gamification>
- Remove all files
- Delete table hackathon_gamification_rule
ToDo & Ideas
- store scores in database
- add more achievements and events/rules
- add connection to frontendmonitoring module, to track page views etc.
