Fathom Analytics, simple website analytics changelog
Your source for recent updates to Fathom Analytics and our simple, privacy-focused website analytics software.
We are actively working on the following features
- Moving our collector to DynamoDB
- Version 3 :o
- A public API
- Our Fathom cats are now fully custom, and fully owned by us. Thanks Natalie @ SaltFlat Studios!
- Added unlimited uptime monitoring to all plans at no extra cost
- Added support for ?ref in URLs. So you can override the referrer. Great for tracking campaigns / sources
- Moved our data collector & dashboard to edge-optimized set-up, meaning faster performance globally
- Introduced a much more simple tracking code, with lots of goodies
- Added support guides for installing Fathom in Ember.js, Gatsby.js, Ghost, Next.js, Nuxt.js, Webflow, Vue.js and Other SPAs
- Deployed a gorgeous refactor to our aggregator. This will mean nothing to you, unless you're nerdy like us, but we moved our thread locks from MySQL to DynamoDB
- You can now stop your analytics from tracking you. And guess what? You don't have to use a browser plugin or have a static IP!
- Revamped custom domains, and they're now much faster, along with having better global availability. Jack actually wrote about how we did it. Not to toot our own horn too much but this is the best custom domain solution on the market, and it took months to get it perfect
- Removed that external image from emails we send you. Our logo now comes as an attachment instead
- Added the data export feature back but with so many improvements. Most people didn't care about this feature, since they have no plans to leave Fathom, but we needed to get this back online
- Fixed a dashboard problem that would log you out if you clicked from another site / email
- Custom domains are now live. Read about it here.
- We had our application reported as malware. We quickly contacted all relevant tools that were reporting us as malware and got them to remove us from their blacklists. We've added real time SSL monitoring and this won't happen again
- Added a new section for our podcast
- Huge aggregation refactors to handle the growing number of new sites. Viral sites do not slow down aggregation for others
- Automate account locking if a user's invoice is unpaid for 1+ month. Less admin work = more time for the product
- Automated affiliate payouts to save admin work
- Released email reports weekly / monthly etc.
- Updated logout to be current device only, not all devices
