PLEASE NOTE: If you forked this project before the 8th May 2015, you may have some problems contributing. This is because previously the master branch contained the unstable, and API breaking v0.4.0 development stream which is very much in a state of flux. From herein, the master branch will always refer to the most recent, stable version of PHPTracker.


For examples see example_*.php or check []

If you want to use the MySQL persistance object, see mysql.sql for the table structure.
