Several of you asked if we could publish Plausible tracking code in an NPM package. It's here now thanks to the contribution by a member of the community πŸ‘

It supports all of the features from the default script and weights ~700 bytes.

As with everything else, we're transparent about our reliability too. We got our status page provider to add uptime percentage feature so it's now easy for all to see.

99.9% uptime over the last 90 days βœ…

There's now a Plausible Analytics integration for Hashnode blogs.

Need simple, lightweight, open source and privacy first analytics for your developer blog? Go to Dashboard -> Integrations in your Hashnode account to enable Plausible.

Are you using WordPress? There's now a brand new Plausible Analytics plugin.

It supports serving the script as a first party connection and you can exclude admin users from having their visits counted.

In case you missed it, you can now go granular. Drill down into mobile users, Chrome browser users or visitors from France and analyze metrics that way.

Everything can be filtered (referral source, page visited, country, browser, OS, device). You can use multiple filters too.

New GA is here! "Privacy-centric by design" so you can get "a complete understanding of your customers across devices and platforms" even with "restrictions on cookies and identifiers" placed by browsers and privacy regulations. And "a deeper integration with Google Ads" too πŸ™„

πŸ“’ Filters galore!

You can now filter your Plausible dashboard based on whatever metric you click on. You can mix and match metrics too.

Who knew a license change would be such a hot topic! 🀣

So many supportive messages and advice all over the place including from some of the largest projects. Made it onto LWN too. 13k+ read our post. Thank you all! πŸ™

We also got our first ever refund request due to this! 😱

Coming to your Plausible dashboard very soon... just putting some finishing touches πŸ‘€

We found an open source license that Google is against so we're changing to it: Hello AGPL!

It helps prevent corporations from taking our code and selling it as a proprietary competitor.

No change to you as a Plausible subscriber or self-hoster.

Weekly report is in the inbox! And last week was great! πŸ“ˆ

"Plausible is a newer kid on the open source analytics tools block. It’s lean, it’s fast and only collects a small amount of information. What sets Plausible apart from its competitors is its heavy focus on privacy"

Thanks! 😍

Last month we launched UTM tag support, doubled our server capacity and paid our first salaries!

We can now say that we're paying rent with our open source project! Pretty wild!

This month we're working on event metadata and the API. Here's the recap:

@plausible on yesterday, so cool! Just catching up on the hour-long session.
