A portlet that uses the Piwik open source analytics system to display how many people are using your Plone site at the moment
collective.piwik.now displays a portlet with the number of users currently using your Plone site.
The Piwik open source analytics system (http://piwik.org/) is used to store the usage data.
How to get it working
You need to have access to a working Piwik installation. Create a new site in the Piwik admin UI and provide the view permission to anonymous users.
You need to make a small change at the tracking tag adding the line “var site_id = X;”, replacing X with your Piwik site_id For example, if in the Piwik code you have: var piwikTracker = Piwik.getTracker(pkBaseURL + “piwik.php”, 6); then site_id = 6 in your case
Install the “Online users” add-on from the Plone control panel
Add the “Online users” portlet from the manage portlets form in the context you want it to appear. At this step you can configure the session timeout in minutes: The time of inactivity after which a user is no longer considered to be online.
