In the past month I tried to understand how many visitors on this very site are blocking the Plausible Analytics tracker script. Here are my findings.
Incredible! 70k visitors / 100k pageviews (excluding those with analytics blockers installed) reached this very website in the last year.
Plausible Analytics recently introduced Custom props for events (here the docs). This was the perfect opportunity for me to implement an idea I had long time ago: (Privacy-friendly) Polls with Plausible Analytics! The idea is to use Plausible's Custom props and hook them up to a simple poll component in JavaScript! Let's get started πŸš€
2020-10-20 is my favourite Analytics service out there. It’s open-source and you have the ability to self-host it.

Do you want to know how users make use of your site? Which links they click most and what converts most? From the official documentation you can trigger custom events via JS, by including a small utility function plausible: html <script> window.plausible = window.plausible || function() { (window.plausible.q = window.plausible.q || []).push(arguments) } </script> Whenever you call plausible('...event...') you put a tracking event in a queue (window.plausible.q) and will be tracked.
As soon as Elixir was released a few years ago, I got into it and started learning and building things with it. Thanks to the help of some dear colleagues I had the opportunity to get valuable feedback and learn even more concepts about GenServers, the BEAM virtual machine, ETS and Erlang+Elixir in general. I also went to my first Erlang+Elixir conf, and had the chance & honour to meet Joe Armstrong, #rememberingjoe. On 2020/04/22, during quarantine, I decided to get back to Elixir (who knows: maybe even dabble with Erlang directly). I post-poned this too much now, it's time to get back to the distributed programming world. Without further ado, below my journey (in form of a daily journal) about learning more about Elixir (again), the BEAM, plausible analytics and things discovered along the way!
