Back in April, we said that we were working on a new software program called “Little Software Stats”. Today, Little Apps is proud to announce the first release of Little Software Stats. This release is version 0.1 and we have codenamed it “Diamond”. Little Software Stats allows software developers to keep track of how their software is being used. This is the first run-time intelligence software to be released as free and open source.

Little Software Stats is developed using PHP and MySQL which will allow it to be on several different web servers. Little Software Stats uses a API to collect information which is cross-platform compatible. The Little Software Stats back-end uses several Javascript libraries including jQuery, jQuery UI, HighCharts, and DataTables.

Little Software Stats uses Maxmind’s GeoLite Country database in order to keep track of users by country. Since IP addresses are changing all the time, the MaxMind GeoLite Country database will be updated (usually once a month) after you are prompted to have it updated in the back-end. You can also have it setup to use the GeoIPs API instead and this way you don’t have to have the GeoLite Country database up to date. If you wish to use the GeoIPs API then you must get a API key first by going to to register an account.

The purpose of Little Software Stats is to collect information in order to help developers with future releases of their product. It is not intended to be used to collect personal information including (but not limited to) names, addresses, phone numbers and credit cards. We also recommend that software developers implement a notification to their users that their information may be tracked and provide an opt-out function to allow users not to be tracked.

We have setup a separate website from this one which is solely for Little Software Stats. The website offers comprehensive information about Little Software Stats including documentation, screenshots, frequently asked questions, and more. The website is located at We should also note that we currently do not have a example website for Little Software Stats setup yet.

The code for Little Software Stats (including it’s libraries) is stored on This is also where we manage bug reports, feature requests and translations. As with our other software, we will also offer downloads on Launchpad, SourceForge, and our download mirror ( If you would like to contribute to Little Software Stats, then please contact us.
