Matomo with Foswiki

Adding the open source visitor analytics tool Matomo to foswiki requires adding a bit of javascript on every page. This can be easily accomplished through Foswiki's template system:
  • In your Foswiki installation, create a file templates/foswiki.matomo.tmpl, add the following content:
%ADDTOZONE{"head" id="ingress" text="
<!-- Matomo --> 
<script type='text/javascript'>
  var _paq = window._paq || []; 
  /* tracker methods like "setCustomDimension" should be called before "trackPageView" */
  (function() {
    var u='//';
    _paq.push(['setTrackerUrl', u+'matomo.php']);
    _paq.push(['setSiteId', '123']);  
    var d=document, g=d.createElement('script'), s=d.getElementsByTagName('script')[0];
    g.type='text/javascript'; g.async=true; g.defer=true; g.src=u+'matomo.js'; s.parentNode.insertBefore(g,s);
<noscript><p><img src='//;rec=1' style='border:0;' alt='' /></p></noscript>
<!-- End Matomo Code --> 
  • The bit between '<!-- Matomo -->' and '<!-- End Matomo Code -->' is the tracking code from your Matomo installation
  • Make sure to change all double quotes (") to single quotes (') in the matomo code
  • Now go to your DefaultPreferences topic, and modify this line:
    • Set SKIN = natedit,pattern
  • so that it says:
    • Set SKIN = matomo,natedit,pattern
That's it!
