Show HN: PiratePx – Open Source Privacy focused analytics

Hacker News - Sat Nov 21 22:00

A 1×1 pixel transparent GIF is very 1997, yes, but it’s also very efficient and easy to use in websites with just an <img> tag.

If you add piratepx to a website, it counts page views out of the box. With a little JavaScript, it can be extended to count events you’re interested in like a <button> click or <form> submission.

For mobile apps, server-side APIs, CLIs, and anywhere else, you can count events like the number of times the app is opened, a user signs up, or an operation is run – anywhere a little insight would help.
