    Hi, PostHog co-founder here. We support deletion of individual users and entire projects, so it's inaccurate to say we "don't support any data deletion". We also TTL recordings after 1 month for free users and 3 months for paid users. You're right that we don't have a way of TTL-ing out events data automatically.

    We have had some requests [0]for this though it hasn't been requested that often hence we haven't prioritised this. We've recently improved some of our tooling around this so should be easier for us to ship.


  • How Telemetry Saved my Open-Source Platform
    3 projects | | 12 Apr 2024
    It would be a shame not to mention PostHog as the telemetry provider we are using, since it turned out to be extremely useful. Because it is hard to find people who will talk with you about your product, gathering statistics gave us a much greater insight into our users.

  • Using Analytics on My Website

    Hi HN, PostHog employee here. I'm working on our Web Analytics product, which is currently in beta. It's fun to see us mentioned here :)

    I should mention that we have a ton of SDKs (see for back end frameworks and languages, so if you wanted to use PostHog without any client-side JS you could send pageviews and other events manually, but for the vast majority of people it makes more sense to use our JS snippet.

    Hijacking this comment to share the roadmap for web analytics It's very much in the launch-early-and-be-embarassed phase, but I would love to hear any feedback or suggestions that people have, particularly if you're already a PostHog user.

  • Ask HN: Where to Store Logs?
    3 projects | | 21 Oct 2023
    Don't insert the logs/events/analytics into your Application DB. Usually, you send those to specialist datastores (OLAP etc) that process such high volume of data. You can use something like clickhouse [0] for example or use 3rd party SAAS solutions like posthog [1] etc that are built on top of clickhouse



  • Ask HN: What would you use to build a mostly CRUD back end today?
    5 projects | | 16 Sep 2023
    I may use Flask-Admin initially to offload the "CRUD" operations to have an initial prototype fast but then drop it ASAP because I don't want to write a "flask-admin application" to fight against later on. If the application is mainly "CRUD", then Flask-Admin is suitable.


    Would you do a breakdown/list of all the jobs you've done by sector/vertical and by function/role and by application functionality?
