  • Plausible Analytics

    Simple, open source, lightweight (< 1 KB) and privacy-friendly web analytics alternative to Google Analytics.

  • For anyone curious about viable alternatives, personally Matomo Analytics is good. You can anonymize IP addresses, go fully cookieless, but also use GeoIP if needed (at least for rough locations, depending on how much of the original address you choose to leave).

    I've been using it for a few years, it also seems to be fairly easy to run and has most of the features that I'd expect: https://matomo.org/

    For something simpler (less focus on page transitions, device and performance metrics etc.) I've also heard good things about Plausible Analytics which advertise being cookieless and compliant with various legislation as well: https://plausible.io/
