eZeasyrec is the start of an easyrec intergation with the javascript function only.

How it works ?

When a user browse your web site and view a content, a javascript query from the browser to easyrec web application server is sent with information about the viewed content :

  • node_id
  • name
  • url
  • image url

When a user rate a content other information are sent to easyrec :

  • node_id
  • average rate value

Other user actions are available like buy.

Every night, one time per day, easyrec recommendation engine compile the user actions.

Like that when a user view a content recommendations will be return to the user.

How easyrec have been integrated ?

A REST API is available. But to be quick and durty, i used for the moment the simple javascript solution.

The intergation of easyrec in eZ Publish is based on a new extension with 2 templates to drive the javascript function and a sample integration on an article content type (full/article.tpl from ezwebin).

eZeasyrec support view and rate actions for the moment.
