Wikimetrics can now generate vital sign metrics for every project daily. Rolling Monthly Active Editor metric has been implemented; the reports are in JSON format, in a logical path hosted on a file server and downloadable. The team also worked on backfilling data for the daily reports on Newly Registered and Rolling Active Editor, and numerous optimizations to backfill the data quickly.

The Wikimetrics landing page


Wikimetrics is a webtool (formerly known as UserMetrics) designed to simplify the measurement of on-site user activity based on a set of standardized metrics. Using this tool, different metrics can be selected and applied to an arbitrarily defined cohort of users to measure their overall productivity, retention, quantity and quality of wiki work. The platform is language- and project-agnostic (it can retrieve data from any Wikimedia project), extensible (adding new metrics, modifying metric parameters) and designed to make data collection for various types of cohort analysis and program evaluation more user-friendly.
