Tracking WordPress based websites is one of the most popular uses of OWA and it's time to give the OWA WordPress plugin a much needed renovation and prepare it for it's eventual move to the official WordPress plugin repository.

Here are the goals of the renovation:

== Phase I ==

  • Reorganize code into classes to eliminate the use of global functions under WP.
  • Refactor code so that insertion of the javascript tracker into pages does not rely on invoking OWA. This will make the plugin able to function on it's own.
  • Provide mechanism for OWA to act as a library and live outside of the WordPress directory
  • Create WordPress options/settings for configuring the plugin
  • make it possible to add WordPress site to site roster of an existing OWA instance.

== Phase II ==

  • create standalone OWA admin user for report access
  • Provide reporting/admin interface access via OWA's own endpoints, not WordPress
  • eliminate install of OWA via WordPress. Instead predict to standalone OWA installer.

== Phase III ==

  • move plugin into official WordPress repository
  • replace current plugin file with a migration/nag plugin in order to alert users that they need to install the new OWA plugin from the WordPress Repo.
