Download Stats

Goal: refine the existing Download Stats page and integrate it more into the mainstream of mozilla.com

Scope:

  • make existing page look more like mozilla.com (adding header, updating fonts, etc)
  • reformatting new page for better visual appeal (rearranging content, removing large SQL Stream promo, etc)
  • integrate links to this page into the rest of the site (particularly by adding a download counter to the Firefox page)
  • make sure the stats and counter are stable

Schedule:

  • August 4: scoping, wireframes, planning
  • August 5: refine mockups
  • August 6-7, 10-12 development
  • August 13-14, 17: QA, fixes
  • August 18: launch

Team: (please add more names as needed)

  • Dave Dash
  • Stephen Des Roches (silverorange)
  • Daniel Einspanjer
  • Mike Morgan
  • John Slater

Aug 4

  • SVN setup
    • use mozilla.com/.../firefox/stats/
    • feed will remain in metrics/downloadvis/...
  • Where to start with mozilla.com cross-mojination
    • Static page lives on mozilla.com, feed lives downloadstats.mozilla.com
  • Slater visual design notes:
    • Download stats page
      • Add proper headline (not just logo + wordmark + "downloads") and short subhead explaining what this page is
      • Should have the full mozilla.com header bar
      • Should have the right nav links consistent with the rest of the http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/ pages
      • Needs short text blurb (lower on the page) with brief explanation of what the #s mean, with a link to a blog post that has more detail about methodology.
    • Firefox download page
      • Needs small promo (most likely under the right nav bar links) with a download counter and link to the full page (following the AMO model). Will need to remove Release Notes and Other Systems & Languages from that nav to make room (note: those links are also under the download button, so we're not losing any content here).
      • add 'statistics' link to right nav?
      • Same promo will need to be added to http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/personal.html, which is laid out differently from the other Firefox download pages.
    • will add copy by Thursday
  • Going with /firefox/stats/
  • SVN for current download stats app: http://svn.mozilla.org/metrics/downloadvis/html/
  • TODO
    • John - write miscellaneous bits of copy for page & promo
    • John/Stephen - Have a solid idea of where we'll put links to the stats page
    • Stephen - first draft of stats page on mozilla.com
    • Dave/Mike - make sure that the feed works, ask Daniel about future feeds
    • Stephen - get on IRC

  • Take a look at mocks
  • Discuss scope
  • Notes
    • will try sprint meetings Tues/Thurs
    • need to make sure the feed/counter doesn't die
    • need to make code handle failure state
    • right now button on map isn't important
    • right column dependent on new feed
    • do we need to have granularity in the stats table
      • figure out what feed we can get, and that determines scope
    • country box w/ local storage/cookies to save which countries are viewed
    • top 10 list - already have that

    • determine what kind of feed we can get
    • figure out what happens when we start tracking download types (manual vs. updates)
    • blog post to describe stats and how we make those stats
    • get Stephen access to download stats SVN
    • figure out where download stats page lives -- metrics or mozilla.com?
