    Pros: 

    Analytics which respects privacy

    Cons: 

    Very early stage

    Fathom promises to be a transparent analytics tool which is open source and doesn't do vague tricks behind the scenes. Can't wait for features like tracking events to roll out.

    Pros: 

    Lightweight, modern, powerful open source web analytics. I love the fact that I can self host.

    Cons: 

    Early days so maybe not all of the features you'd expect.

    I'm excited to see a modern open source alternative for web analytics. I've been a happy Fathom user since the code was first put up on Github.

@lovevalgeisler We'll soon have a hosted version that's just a copy+paste (probably also a simple WP plugin to add the code) - you can be a beta tester if you'd like, when we're ready.

I'm looking forward to trying this. Google Analytics tracks way too much and this seems like a more simple and user-friendly solution.

@biraj while we are releasing a roadmap soon, we are open to other features if enough of the user-base wants them.

This looks awesome! I’ve been following along since your first tweet about it. I will definitely be trying out the self hosted version soon. I think the way you are doing a free self hosted version and a paid hosted version is a very smart way to do it!
