We use analytics on Restarters.net as a way to try and figure out journeys through the application as a way to try and improve the experience for members of Restarters.
We currently use Google Analytics. Google is not the most ethical of companies. (Just one example here…) Where possible, we’d like to avoid using them as a service provider. We do however have to take into account whether / how easily we can achieve similar functionality otherwise, and how important it is to the community to avoid a particular service.
Matomo is a potential open-source, self-hosted, non-Google alternative.
