A few weeks ago I stepped down as a maintainer for Fathom (open-source website analytics).
Just updated Mastodon on stinkt.online to v2.6.
- Profile link verification. I really like the approach that was taken here!
- In-stream link previews. No third-party scripts are loaded until you press it, so there is no privacy cost to the convenience.
- Remastered DM's. Nice.
Been running Arch (with Gnome) on my workstation for the last week and am really digging it so far.
All hardware is working right away, system runs super smooth and the official repositories have all the software I really need.
#Hacktoberfest, a month long celebration of open-source software!
We're celebrating along with @usefathom so if you're looking to get that sweet t-shirt this month, check out these issues: https://github.com/usefathom/fathom/labels/Hacktoberfest
@danyspin97 GoAccess is awesome - I use it myself extensively and love it!
I dream of a world where less tech-savvy web users could have access to it, but so long as they see command-line interaction as "the matrix" I doubt that'll ever happen. 😜
All in all; a great week for usefathom.com.
We got our first paying customers and they're happy! We're nowhere close to being able to pay ourselves but hardware costs are covered.
At this rate I'm hoping that with a few months of growth this can be a sustainable effort for all involved so we can lower costs for our early adopters.
@ronaldlangeveld Thanks man. And thanks for the mention on the Ghost forums, appreciate that!
@jmslbam Fathom is also my baby ❤️
We launched Fathom PRO today - and we're on Product Hunt!
Self-host all the things! If you're looking for a good idea of alternatives to services you can self-host on your homeserver or VPS, take a look at this list: https://github.com/Kickball/awesome-selfhosted
@demonkind Lichess is great at that.
Selling software as a service, 8 years in and counting.
