µMint allows you to painlessly integrate Shaun Inman’s Mint into WordPress. Unlike the currently existent solution, µMint does not make use of iframes. Instead, µMint is designed to work with both the Exposé API, by Adam Livesley as well as the included API, µAPI for Mint. Furthermore, there is a development version of a connector which allows WordPress to directly query Mint, when the two share a database.

µMint is really easy to install. In most cases all you need to do is enter your µAPI or Exposé API key. Even in more advanced cases the AJAX(y) user interface seamlessly walks you through the process. There’s also installation instructions.
µAPI does more than just get your stats, it displays them for you. You can have your choice of a sidebar widget, a dashboard widget, or both. And, in the µ plugin philosophy, stats are cached periodically to reduce the number of API calls required.
µAPI takes the Mint API to the next level by including more robust security, as well as standardized XML based error responses so that you client application can provide more meaningful error information.
µAPI is packaged with µMint, so there’s only one thing to download.
