(Feature Request) Third-party stats
Hi everybody, first of all thank you for this wonderful piece of code! I would like to propose a new feature: an option to specify/customize the data source for the stats shown by this app. It currently relies on Jetpack and a Wordpress account, but it could be opened to other Analytics plugins (wassup, wp slimstat, statpress) if their developers are willing to implement the data protocol required by this app to fetch the information. A quick guide on how to format the data would definitely help. This would enable the majority of WP4iOs to keep track of their stats, no matter what tracking script they use. One day, leveraging Google Analytics API, someone could even write a connector for this service. Just imagine the possibilities this new feature would open!
Sounds interesting, but we have a lot of stuff to do before going into 3rd party plugins.
If we were to do it, I guess the easiest option would be to have the plugins provide a mobile friendly admin screen and load that inside the app.
Thank you, Jorge.
Yes, that would be a nice start. But since you already have a 'connector' to retrieve the information from WP.com, what if people could just customize the URL of the XMLRPC service your app connects to? The app stat rendering engine wouldn't even need to be changed, since the format would be the same (as long as plugin developers implement it in their code).
