We’re pleased to announce that Spree now has a great new analytics dashboard powered by our friends at Jirafe. The dashboard is available by default in the upcoming 1.0 release but it is also available as an extension for older versions of Spree.
This is basically a replacement for the old Spree dashboard and relies on a real-time analytics service. You will need an activation key to use this free service. Get your activation key now by registering for a user account on spreecommerce.com and registering your store. Store registration is completely private – your store will not appear in the showcase or any other public venue. More details on registration can be found in the Getting Started guide.
Since this is integrated into 1.0.x there is nothing to install. If you are using earlier versions of Spree, however, there is a stand-alone spree_analytics extension that works with Spree versions 0.70.x and 0.60.×.
If you’re not interested in the new analytics functionality you can always use the “legacy” dashboard which does not require the authorization token. Check out the spree_simple_dash extension if you’re interested.
