Track requests to your Flask website with Matomo
Flask-Matomo is a library which lets you track the requests of your Flask website using Matomo (Piwik).
pip install flask-matomo
from flask import Flask, render_template from flask_matomo import * app = Flask(__name__) matomo = Matomo(app, matomo_url="https://matomo.mydomain.com", id_site=5, token_auth="XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX") @app.route("/") def index(): return render_template("index.html") if __name__ == "__main__": app.run()
In the code above:
- The Matomo object is created by passing in the Flask application and arguments to configure Matomo.
- The matomo_url parameter is the url to your Matomo installation.
- The id_site parameter is the id of your site. This is used if you track several websites with on Matomo installation. It can be found if you open your Matomo dashboard, change to site you want to track and look for &idSite= in the url.
- The token_auth parameter can be found in the area API in the settings of Matomo. It is required for tracking the ip address.
