Somehow, in the last few days, I’ve chilled out and wound down by making some incremental improvements to my Kownter analytics. There’s now a 24-hour top pages view AND it does some user-agent lookups to get browser/not names. Should pave the way for excluding bots.

@ross This sounds like an interesting IndieWeb version of analytics. I'll bet you might find some interest there. You'd certainly find some who might try using it. I like the ethical way it sounds like you're designing it.

@c Thanks, Chris. Its a bit of a toy project. I’m learning a lot through building it (as blog.kownter.com shows!). But when Paul Jarvis announced Fathom it became clear that maybe this is something people want/need. So I’m persevering.

@c Fathom is written in Go, and it has more resources, including someone with some design skills, so it will probably be more scalable and prettier. But mine does exactly what I needed it to and I’m pretty happy it’s independent, simple, and handles no personal data.
