Burnalytics - Ruby Feedburner and Google Analytics Library

Monday, October 30th, 2006

Update: A typo in FeedBurner.rb has been fixed

Prerequisites are:

A Google Analytics account
A FeedBurner account (and awareness turned on)
Gruff (Rmagick) - for the graph support

The api goes like this:

# Feedburner:
# Gets feed data and creates graph
feed =”Eribium”)
data = feed.get_data

Eribium and Stats

Friday, October 20th, 2006
