  1. I'd like to get an email alert when my ranking changes

    I'd like to be alerted when my YSlow or PageSpeed rank goes lower then a threshold.

    It's probably a good idea to compare the change over time instead of immediate value to avoid too much alerting.

    • Support DB other than mySQL

      From documentation I come to know it is tightly coupled with mySQL. Can we enable other Database support ?

      Is there any special mySQL DB calls used ? Can we get rid of from special calls or syntax ?

        • Distinguish between lines you want to go up and lines you want to go down

          On the "Measurements Over Time" graph on the details page, there are several lines, all plotted against each other, which isn't really a useful way to visualize the data. One helpful possibility might be to separate/distinguish the lines that we want to go up (the scores) from the lines that we want to go down (pageload time, pagesize).

          • Adding geographic or other metadata to YSlow or PageSpeed data packs

            Say you want to test loading times in different geographical locations and tag your metrics with the location the measurements were submitted from.
            The "tag" could come from YSlow/PageSpeed itself by allowing to (i) enter it manually or (ii) deducing it from the browser's settings (e.g. locale) or (iii) directly passed it from the script/automation tool that periodically instructs a browser to carry out the test and submit the data to ShowSlow.

            • I want to import some metrics from Google Analytics

              I want to import some metrics from Google Analytics, e.g. bounce rate to be displayed next to my performance metrics to make it easier to convince my business to pay attention to performance.

              • Ability to sort by header fields (e.g. page speed score, yslow grade, etc...)

                It would be awesome if we could click on a header field such as page speed score or yslow grade, etc... and have it sort accordingly, descending/ascending

                • Create a public dashboard

                  For the URL's that I monitor I'd love to be able to select a measure from each URL (say YSLOW gauge) and aggregate them on a single page - and make that publically viewable at a URL...

                    I would like to enter specific information on the timeline (something like a reminder - "r201 javascript optimization", "r307 removed google adsense" etc) Something ala google finance would fit perfectly

                      • Generate a report to show all the url ranked between 2 dates in order to have a snapshot in a period

                        In a continuous build (and functional testing) I might need to collect ranking data periodically. So it will be nice to generate a report (html, csv, xml) of the collected data in a period

                          • allow customized page name

                            ..and allow the measurement graph to group by either the page name or the URL as it does now. Accept a cookie that can be used to store a user-definable page name. Users would set the value of the cookie with JavaScript. This would primarily be useful for internal ShowSlow instances, and the test URL uses AJAX to load page content dynamically, or any other case where multiple pages share the same URL.

                            • support mysql socket connections

                              I had a hard time setting up ShowSlow to use MySQL connection over a socket. The documentation page says it's an option, but the system is hardcoded to connect to MySQL on port 3306. Eventually I had to change the mysql_connect() calls to send a parameter for the socket path.

                                If you can, we should be able to configure at least one location per url to test from

                                      Dear Showslow users,

                                      I would like to create my own Showslow online environment to do some
                                      private testing.

                                      Is there anybody who can support me with installing the Showslow tool,
                                      including Yslow, Page Speed and DynaTrace? Technically I'm not able to
                                      get the Showslow scripts running correctly.

                                      The main goal is creating an as-is situation just like the current
                                      Showslow.com website.
                                      If you can install this succesfully for me there will be a small fee
                                      for you!
                                      NB. Webdomain, FTP and mysql is already available / up and running

                                      I'm looking forward for someone who can help me out soon! …

                                      • International domain names does not work

                                        I have a domain, hvkørbæk.dk - it does not want to accept it in that format, or the IDN-format of http://xn--hvkrbk-tua5l.dk/

                                        Well it accepts it, but i never get any stats

                                        • configure timezone in timestamp column

                                          and format the timestamp, current one requires an effort to understand it : 2010-06-10T01:20:35-06:00
