Plausible (Analytics Platform)
Hosting documentation (Docker):
Self-hosting Beta announcement:
It would be great to see this app come to Cloudron - seems like a great, light weight alternative to already existing Matomo.
Actually I'd be interested to help packaging this as a Cloudron app. From my point of understanding, it should be possible to bring this app to Cloudron, correct me if I'm wrong
Just stepping by to update this thread:
Plausible self-hosting is out of the Beta phase and now in the official documentation:
@meaculpa are you affiliated with the project?
@fbartels Hey, no, not at all. I'm just curious to try it and maybe learn packaging a cloudron app on the way.

I'd like to try an analytics tool also. Matomo I've used in other projects.
I've also seen Plausible being used in the client I am working with at the moment.
I'll ask them for a small review of it to see what the good and bad points are.

Any news on this?
I would also like to se Plausible in Cloudron app store.
They have gained much traction lately and are GDPR compliant which is nice.
I've tried their service and I liked it so now I am looking for self hosting option.
Plausible on Cloudron would be nice.

@caleno I too would like to see Plausible here on Cloudron.
I have Ackee installed and using it, and no problems, but I get the impression Plausible offers a bit more. Without a detailed analysis, just an impression.
And it's good to have a little choice in the categories here.
If you can't wait for it to be packaged here and are up for going solo, there is a nice guided walk-through here :

Definitely another vote for Plausible. Been looking at a possibly more modern Matomo alternative and this seems to fit the bill nicely. That and Umami but Plausible seems more feature-rich especially as it seems to have reporting functionality which is important for my clients.

@d19dotca I was a fan of Plausible, but to be honest, I have gone off it.
I have moved to Umami which doesn't suffer the blocking which Plausible was. I.e. Plausible tracking script gets blocked MUCH more than Umami, so it effectively under-reports traffic. (Mind you Google Analytics also does).
Vote up Umami instead is my recommendation.
But no problem to have Umami, Plausible and Ackee as options.

@timconsidine I voted up both already. But my understanding is that Umami doesn’t yet do reporting which is critical for my customers (they pay for it) so I personally would be required to go with Plausible until Umami picks up some more features like reporting capabilities. If I’ve missed that in Umami though please point me to the right doc.

@d19dotca I'm not anti-Plausible, just prefer best data.
Good to have a choice of systsems.
What type of reporting is needed?
