There is an entire sourceforge community called wurfl which is feverishly detailing the capabilities of every wireless handset by useragent.
This awstats.pl patch and plugin enables awstats to call the tera wurfl for very accurate mobile handset tracking (http://www.tera-wurfl.com) as an alternate to the inbuilt browsers.pm
Attached is a patch file which contains:
Here is the detail of what is contained:
This patch calls out to tera_wurfl if the plugin is enabled in the conf file. The patch does it's best to favour awstats' logic where possible and only fall to wurfl for definite handsets
In order for this patch to work we need to remove the device matching capabilities of awstats for mobile phones as we prefer to trust wurfl for that.
The core plugin which looks up the device and some of it's key properties (such as screen size). Each device lookup is locally cached in memory to speed things up.
The config changes required to:
Load the plugin and point it to your tera wurfl
Add an extrasection to report on common screen sizes (other data can be captured from tera wurfl and reported as an extra section with relative simplicity)
A new icon for the blackberry range
I hope this helps and can be simply rolled in to the core awstats with minimum fuss!
It was donated by my employer 5th Finger who do a lot of mobile marketing activities.
