Replace google analytics with something more ethical


#1

Google Analytics is maybe good for convenience but not very good ethically. Matamo (piwik) for example would be a good replacement. It has a GPL License, is free in terms of free beer and it is libre :slight_smile:


#2

Yes. This comes up regularly.
See https://github.com/Trustroots/trustroots/issues/635

What if we do this?

  • set up Matomo - with ansible, and backups
  • run it for at least a year without hiccups
  • switch off Google Analytics
