We have received permission from Martin Angelov to include his "Who is online?" widget in Piwik.

See demo at: http://tutorialzine.com/2010/03/who-is-online-widget-php-mysql-jquery/

To Do:

  • port to use Piwik backend, database, and images (e.g., country flags)
  • add to new LiveWidgets plugin
  • respect anonymous view access setting; more fine grained access will depend on #283

Files:

  • connect.php - use Piwik's db connection instead
  • functions.php - get_tag() parses hostip.info response; is_bot() is used to prevent direct access to the .php files by bots
  • geodata.php - returns top 15 countries with most visitors and flags
  • online.php - tracker and current count
  • table.sql - redundant; use Piwik's log_visit table

Re-mapping columns to Piwik:

  • id - idvisit
  • ip - location_ip
  • country - (n/a - use a translation lookup on the country code)
  • countrycode - location_country
  • city - (n/a - not used by "Who is online?"; could be mapped
  • dt - visit_last_action_time

I would like to work on this ticket to have a feel on how plugins are developed within Piwik.

Could you please confirm that this widget would be added on the dashboard using "Add a widget" -> "Live!" -> "Who is online?"

Also, would the widget be integrated as is or should its design be remodeled
to look like the other widgets. E.g: should it be enclosed in the "widget container", I'm refering to :

<div id="" class="widget">
    <div class="widgetTop"/>
    <div class="widgetContent"/>
</div>

Notes:

  • use attached image, arrow_up.gif, to replace arrow.png
  • the demo's slide out effect to display the visitor-by-country panel isn't suited to iframes, so should not be implemented as a single Piwik widget
  • implement two separate Piwik widgets:
    • Live Counter
    • Live Visitors By Country
  • use JavaScript and jQuery to .load these two widgets, duplicating the effect in Martin's demo
  • may want to use setContentType from #1384

Julien, you are welcome to work on it indeed :)

There's some ambiguity with the license and I haven't received a response from Martin yet, so I'll wrap this into a third-party plugin, in the interim.

It would be nice to do this I think, would improve our 'marketingness' as we could maybe put a little piwik logo or a link in the output?

Also, this widget is a nice idea: http://s04.flagcounter.com/count/lng/bg=FFFFFF/txt=000000/border=CCCCCC/columns=2/maxflags=18/viewers=0/labels=1/pageviews=1/

@robocoder robocoder added this to the Future releases milestone
@mattab mattab removed the P: normal label

This could be developed in a plugin that could provide several different badges like this. Would be interesting! Especially since it could maybe also give Piwik more visibility if people embed it on their website.

In LiveTab I only display the number of visits etc in the browser tab of the Piwik user and I currently do not intend to extend it due to not having enough time :(

Maybe someone wants to develop this in a plugin? Added a label...
