Projects / BBclone


BBclone is a PHP Web counter on steroids which displays individual logs as well as aggregated data. It is a clone of Big Brother webstats, except that it is written in PHP and it relies only on flat files (no database needed). BBclone enables any Web site administrator to have a very precise view of who visit the website: OS, browser, date, referring page etc. Main features include reload resistance, hostname resolution, proxy workaround, and blacklist.

            Thumbs up
            I'd been scouring the net for a decent web counter / tracker and I really came up trumps with this one. It doesn't rely on any mySQL, which is a bonus and the current CVS version is stonking. The use of reverse DNS comes in very handy and the customisation possibilities are sensible.

            I'm looking forward to the implementation of some of the features that appeared in past versions, but everything was recoded. Here's what to look out for (from the site):

            Adding the automatic generation of access.php after N (configurable) connections.

            Enhanced resolving of non countries extensions or IPs by simply comparing the
            address range if it matches to a specific country.

            Filter those who came from a search engine and list the top keywords being used for finding our page

            Wherever it makes sense producing some simple diagrams for visualizing data.

            Adding the capability to watch download on page and classing the most downloaded files.

            Adding themes and adding templates inside a template/ subdir.

            Nothing to download yet
            Ooops, I just added an appindex BUT THERE IS NOTHING TO DOWNLOAD YET : BBclone is not stable enough yet.

            I will make an annoucement on freshmeat as soon as a Beta version is relased. Sorry for the inconvenience (I didn't know that appindexes where accessible without an annoucement).

            You can try BBStats which is pretty cool :
