Looking at something similar, I was getting the data into monthly chunks with a CGI script which you could then parse and output as JSON - hopefully that will point you in the right direction?

...
        my $session = new EPrints::Session;
        my $handler = $session->plugin( "Stats::Handler" );
        $handler->debug(1);
        my $ctx = $handler->context( {datatype=> "downloads", set_name=>"eprint", set_value=>$eprint } );
        my $stats = $handler->data( $ctx )->select( fields => ["datestamp"]);
        my %month_count;
        for my $day_count (@{$stats->data})
        {
                $month_count{substr($day_count->{datestamp},0,6)} += $day_count->{count};
        }
...

Subject: [EP-tech] IRStats API

Hello all,

I know that there is a page on the Wiki regarding the API for IRStats, however my question is somewhat more specific. I'm working on a tool attempting to combine different metrics relating to EPrints outputs in one dashboard. This is being written in PHP and currently incorporates data from Altmetric and Scopus, scraped nightly into a local database. The guide for the IRStats API discusses using it within the Perl environment of EPrints, however it does not mention if it's possible to access the data from an external application (that I can see at least)

Is this possible or am I barking up the wrong tree?

All the best,
Andrew
