Hello from Analytics Team!

We are happy to announce the Alpha release of Wikistats 2. Wikistats has
been redesigned for architectural simplicity, faster data processing, and a
more dynamic and interactive user experience. First goal is to match the
numbers of the current system, and to provide the most important reports,
as decided by the Wikistats community (see survey) [1].  Over time, we will
continue to migrate reports and add new ones that you find useful. We can
also analyze the data in new and interesting ways, and look forward to
hearing your feedback and suggestions. [2]

You can go directly to Spanish Wikipedia

or browse all projects

The new site comes with a whole new set of APIs, similar to our existing
Pageview API but with edit data. You can start using them today, they are
documented here:



Why is this an alpha?
There are features that we feel a full-fledged product should have that are
still missing, such as localization. The data-processing pipeline for the
new Wikistats has been rebuilt from scratch (it uses distributed-computing
tools such as Hadoop) and we want to see how it is used before calling it
final. Also while we aim to update data monthly, it will happen a few days
after the month rolls because of the amount of data to move and compute.

How about comparing data between two wikis?
You can do it with two tabs but we are aware this UI might not solve all
use cases for the most advanced Wikistats users. We aim to tackle those in
the future.

How do I file bugs?
Use the handy link in the footer: https://phabricator.wikimedia.

How do I comment on design?
The consultation on design already happened but we are still watching the
talk page: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Wikistats_2.0_Design_
