Matomo,[2] formerly Piwik (pronounced /ˈpwk/), is a free and open source web analytics application developed by a team of international developers, that runs on a PHP/MySQL webserver. It tracks online visits to one or more websites and displays reports on these visits for analysis. As of June 2018, Matomo was used by over 1,455,000 websites,[3] or 1.3% of all websites with known traffic analysis tools,[4] and has been translated into 54 languages.[5] New versions are released regularly.[6]

Piwik was released in late 2007 as a replacement for phpMyVisites, with full API support, a cleaner UI, modern graphs, better architecture and better performance.

On 21 November 2008, announced the availability of Piwik as a hosted application for developers.[7][8]

Piwik was selected SourceForge's Project of the Month for July 2009.[9]

In August 2009, Piwik was named among the best of open source enterprise in InfoWorld's 2009 Bossie Awards.[10]

In December 2012, Piwik started crowdfunding for requested new features.[11]

In January 2018, Piwik was officially renamed as Matomo.[12]
