Currently Treeviews does a great job at telling pageviews around a topic, when the main-space content is what needs to be measured. However, for projects like The Wikipedia Library, part of our impact is how many users use services like [[en:WP:Reference Desk]] or open projects like WP:TWL. It would be awesome to add to Treeviews (http://tools.wmflabs.org/glamtools/treeviews/) or similar the ability to select which namespace can be measured, and collected within a category. For example, we would like to be able measure pageviews for https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:The_Wikipedia_Library on both English, and across the other language communities. This might partially be dependent on https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T56184 , because Treeviews and similar tools are going to need to be updated alongside the new pageview source data. What would be the best way to do this?
Both direct page view counts (e.g. treeview) and pages-with-images (baglama) are based on http://stats.grok.se
That site works reasonably well, but has issues (not all wikis, scalability, no desktop/mobile, weird view definitions, etc.)
I am waiting for https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T44259 to be available, then play around with it, then write some interfaces around that.
If you need a hackish solution before that, maybe someone is willing to supply a patch for treeviews. I myself won't waste time on hacking code that is marked as obsolete.
@Magnus Discovered I could use PagePile to hack the tool: https://tools.wmflabs.org/glamtools/treeviews/?q=%7B%22pagepile%22%3A%221311%22%2C%22rows%22%3A%5B%5D%7D but the Project Space is not collecting pageview information: is that a problem with the new API? Is it not reading Project: as project space as (with https://analytics.wmflabs.org/demo/pageview-api/ it auto corrects to Wikipedia:) ?
