Module Description

angular-piwik

AngularJS service for Piwik open source web analytics platform API.

You can enjoy the power of the Piwik reporting, tracking and widget API, the AngularJS way. It also provides a more seamless experience with the different API.

It has been tested with AngularJS versions 1.2 to 1.4. It may work with previous ones, let me know. Actually, the future 1.0 version of angular-piwik will undoubtedly require AngularJS 1.4 as it simplifies the code a lot (less code = less bugs).

Enough words, let's...

Getting started

Get the necessary files

Using CDN

Target version
  • for production, add this snippet to your HTML file:
<script src="https://cdn.rawgit.com/proximedia/angular-piwik/v0.4.2/build/angular-piwik.min.js" type="application/javascript"></script>
  • for development, prefer this one:
<script src="https://cdn.rawgit.com/proximedia/angular-piwik/v0.4.2/build/angular-piwik.js" type="application/javascript"></script>
On the edge
<script src="https://rawgit.com/proximedia/angular-piwik/master/build/angular-piwik.js" type="application/javascript"></script>

Using Bower

Just run bower install proximedia-angular-piwik from your console in your project folder.

And add this snippet to your HTML file:

<script src="bower_components/proximedia-angular-piwik/build/angular-piwik.js" type="application/javascript"></script>

Using NPM

Just run npm i proximedia-angular-piwik from your console in your project folder.

And add this snippet to your HTML file:

<script src="node_modules/proximedia-angular-piwik/build/angular-piwik.js" type="application/javascript"></script>

Add the dependency to your module

Add "pxmPiwik" to the list of dependencies of your module. It should look a bit like this:

var app = angular.module("myApp", ["pxmPiwik"]);

Setting things up

We provide $piwikProvider for your pleasure with 8 methods with gently defaults:

  • setFormat. Sets the data format returned by the reporting API, default is json ;
  • setId. Sets the site ID for the tracking, default is 1 ;
  • setLanguage. Sets the language used by Piwik in some localized response elements of the reporting and widget API, default is en ;
  • setToken. Set the auth token used to query the reporting and widget API, default is anonymous ;
  • setUrl. Use this one if you use only one Piwik instance. Default is http://demo.piwik.org/ ;
  • setUrlApi. Default is http://demo.piwik.org/ ;
  • setUrlTracker. Default is http://demo.piwik.org/ ;
  • setUrlWidget. Default is http://demo.piwik.org/.

You can change them as easily as writing this:

app.config(["$piwikProvider", function ($piwikProvider)
{
  $piwikProvider.setLanguage("fr");
}]);

And you can always override these defaults at call time.

Taming the beast

Here we are, at least. Let us introduce you the $piwik service. It provides 4 methods:

  • promise $piwik.addTracker(integer site, string url)
  • site is the site ID (optional). It takes precedence over the one you can configure with $piwikProvider.setId() ;
  • url is url of the tracker instance (optional). It takes precedence over the one you can configure with $piwikProvider.setUrl() or $piwikProvider.setUrlTracker() ;
  • note that you can use the directive instead ;
  • you can't track multiple sites for the moment
  • promise $piwik.call(string method, object params)
  • method is a string like "Module.Action" ;
  • params is an object. You can override any of the configuration constants here ;
  • it returns a Promise object, as it uses $http.get() ;
  • see http://developer.piwik.org/api-reference/reporting-api for a list of available methods ;
  • additionally, you can call multiple methods at once: $piwik.call([[method1, params1], [method2, params2], ...]).
  • string $piwik.track(string method, array params)
  • see http://developer.piwik.org/api-reference/tracking-javascript for a list of available methods ;
  • string $piwik.widget(string method, object params)
  • method is a string like "Module.Action" ;
  • params is an object. You can override any of the configuration constants here ;
  • it returns a string containing the full URL of the widget.

And now, the pxm-piwik directive which is the markup twin of the $piwik.addTracker() method:

<pxm-piwik site="1" url="http://demo.piwik.org/"></pxm-piwik>

As for the $piwik.addTracker() method, site and url are optional if you set them up with $piwikProvider before.

Real life example

var app = angular.module("myApp", ["pxmPiwik"]);

app.config(["$piwikProvider", function ($piwikProvider)
{
  $piwikProvider.setLanguage("fr");
}]);

app.controller("MyCtrl", ["$piwik", "$scope", function ($piwik, $scope)
{
  $scope.track = $piwik.track;

  $piwik.call("Actions.getPageUrls", {
    idSite: 1,
    period: "day",
    date: "today"
  }).success(function (data)
  {
    console.log(data);
  });

  angular.element("iframe:first").attr("src", $piwik.widget("UserCountryMap.visitorMap", {
    idSite: 1,
    period: "day",
    date: "today"
  }));
});
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html ng-app="myApp">
  <head>...</head>
  <body ng-controller="MyCtrl">
    ...
    <button ng-click="track('trackEvent', ['Test', 'Clicked']);">Track this!</button>
    ...
    <pxm-piwik site="1" url="http://demo.piwik.org/"></pxm-piwik>
  </body>
</html>
