This is a plugin for the Open Source Web Analytics platform Matomo (Piwik). If enabled, it will add a two new widgets that you can add to your dashboard.
The widgets will show a Visitor Barometer and a Visit Time Barometer that auto-refresh every 5 seconds. It shows the number of visitors or visit time in a N minute period compared to the maximum number of visitors/average visit time in any N minute period of the last 30 days.
The idea for this plugin came from @muesli who suggested it on #piwik in IRC.
This plugin is compatible with Matomo 2 (see requirements below for more details).
