Analytics workflow

I just threw together a quick site access analytics page for the plots that I’m already generating from access data. Whenever I invoke the analytics script, the freshest version of these plots is then staged for deployment onto the server.

The visualizations are very much still works in progress. I haven’t done much beyond switching from native R plotting to the snazzier ggplot2 (it’s “based on the grammar of graphics”!). I’m using the rpy2 library as a bridge, to which I’m already locked in by my desire to do circular statistics analyses, but if I were not, the Python port ggplot might be nice to try out.
