Before we possibly build something custom, has anyone already built an add-on that fits in the following criteria?
- work in Plone 5
- display pages visited
- display files downloaded
- user-specific stats (visits/downloads per user or region)
- user-friendly UI
- This would be for an Intranet that is not accessible at a public URL. This likely rules out collective.googleanalytics because we wouldn't be able to authenticate via OAuth.
- Plus the client would likely prefer data to be managed/saved locally, not at a third party site
One of the UW Oshkosh student teams did something similar but to grant badges to users for having created content items etc. Have to look up the details
I don't think it rules out google analytics. Oauth doesn't require a public url I believe.
But if the urls themselves are sensitive and they don't like the idea of that data residing in USA and google (even if private) then it does rule it out.
Note that c.googleanalytics currently does a poor job of tracking downloads. This is something that needs to be improved by implementing serverside google analytics integration. This is something we may need soon and be implenting for a similar project.
I'd also be interested in any other solutions others suggest

Maybe not Oauth itself, but something in the Google authentication process does.

I did not realize that, thanks for pointing it out
I did look at this one briefly. The collective.piwik.* packages haven't been touched in quite a while. I'm not very familiar with Piwik, I may need to check it out.
