So I finally decided to stick with GoatCounter. Plausible is really nice but has too many moving parts for my setup. GoatCounter is a single binary and can be backed by SQLite which is perfect for the very low volume of my website.
Considering features, for my use case both tools seemed pretty identical but I feel plausible can do a bit more advanced stuff than GC.
@Crocmagnon I am curious about this https://blog.cloudflare.com/privacy-first-web-analytics/ wonder how this compares to the two you are looking at
@softinio well at least it’s not self-hostable and not FOSS 😊 (or maybe I missed something)
I want to use something that I can self host so that I have control over the data and I’m less dependent on third parties 🙂
@Crocmagnon I'm using goat counter on my personal website - I appreciate that there is a no-js way to track views.
