Google Analytics at a glance

Since 2011, Big Brother has provided you a welcome insight into your sites' visitor statistics by importing your Google Analytics data into the MODX dashboard.

We've maintained it since 2015 and rebuild it in 2021 to support the new Google Analytics 4 and the upcoming MODX3.

Big Brother is open source and free to use.

News about Big Brother

Support our work on 30+ open source extras

We take pride in our work and always try to deliver quality tools, no matter if we sell them as premium extras or release it as open source.

Maintaining all of the 30+ open source extras we have released over the years is a lot of work, which often doesn't get done as much as we'd like. Paid work and premium extras fill up our schedule faster than we can empty it as a small team.

By donating, you give us the option to reserve more time from the freelance members of our team. It literally buys more time for open source! And it also earns you our eternal gratitude, plus a public record of your generosity. Donations over €250 are also eligible for logo placement.


Raised €293.20 of €1,250 goal this year, €293.20 total (all-time)

Please note that we're not a non-profit organization. That means VAT may be added to your chosen donation amount during checkout. We do count the full amount, VAT included, towards the goal.

Hall of fame

Please note we switched our billing in March 2023, and only donations made after that switch are listed below.

From 2013 until the switch, we received a grand total of €4933 in donations (an average of €548 per year), across all our projects and several crowdfunding campaigns.

We'd like to especially thank the legendary Susan Ottwell for her very generous €1000 donation, and Jens Wittmann for various donations over the years totalling €550+. 💙

The average donation we received is €97.73.
