ThinkingPHP:
Google Analytics PHP API (CakePHP Model)
June 19, 2006 @ 17:17:28

From the ThinkingPHP blog today, there's a new post that looks at combining to great things - the CakePHP project and Google Analytics - into a tool using Google's API to grab a sites stats.

About 2 weeks ago, I recieved an e-mail in which one of my readers pointed out the existance of a couple wordpress plugins, that offer Google Analytics statistics. One of them also seems to be pretty popular and so far Google hasn't stopped any of the creators from providing them.

For this reason I decided to release my Api as well, and let you decide about the ways to use it. I'm sure you'll find some interestings things to do with it. Since I already started my new Web Model package over at cakeforge I just added the Google Analytics Model to it.

Not only does he provide all the code you'll need, but he also includes an online demo so you can test out the functionality before putting in the work. You'll need the CakePHP framework (obviosuly) to get it all working. The code to use the actual API is pretty simple and behaves "like a simulated browser" to grab the data needed. Reports are cached locally (default is 2 hours) so as not to have to make API calls constantly.
