Real-time analytics dashboard for Node Knockout

Description

NKO Analytics is a real-time dashboard for Node Knockout participants

Most free analytics tools do not show real-real-time access information. Given NKO allows only 2-day long dev time, developers have to make changes every minute; so it is important for them to know how much their websites attract visitors. If there is one dashboard that logs how well each participant is doing, they can learn from the high-traffic sites, and the competition becomes more exciting.

This project (Node KO Analytics) is a proof of concept that a simple analytics tool can make the hackathon a better place!

Duplicate your browser tab and see the number of visitors changes on the fly.

The graphs are the number of real-time visitors of the site. We also log average time spent on a page. Duplicate your browser tab and see the number of visitors changes dynamically.

At the top of the page, there are buttons to change the sorting order: visitors, ave. time, name. You can also search name or domain of the site using the top bar.

Tested on Chrome 30, Firefox 25, Safari 7, Mobile Safari (iOS7)

    Nice package, though there are already a lot of analytics tools out there. Still, I think this could be pretty useful if it is developed further.

    • Thanks for the review. Sure I would think to develop further.

    Seems to work; unfortunately not too many people on the site when i tried it. The dashboard was confusing to me. Also why it is 2 pages and not one page.

    • It is unfortunate that you did not see the graphs are jumping around. Since I did not want to degrade the user experience, I chose pagination instead of infinity scroll in order to avoid rendering too many graphs at the same time

    • And thanks for the review :)

    Works like you expect it to work, could still use some more features & a good visual designer. Lacks something really knew I haven't seen before.

    • Thanks for the review. I will think super super new stuff next year!

    Basic real time analytics - works, works good :)

    • Thanks! Yes, it is working! More importantly, I wanted to connect NKO teams through this dashboard

    Cool idea and well executed. I wish I had added it to my site before the coding ended! It would be interesting to see some longer-term trends too, like a graph of how many concurrent visitors you have over 1 hour or over 1 day.

    • Thanks for the review! Time window change is a definitely good idea
