re: Who's looking for open source contributors? (October 1st edition) VIEW POST


Fathom Analytics, an open-source and privacy friendly alternative to Google Analytics is built on top of a Golang & Preact and always eager to welcome contributors.

We've labeled a few issues involving either Preact or Golang with #Hacktoberfest.


It's the same idea at its core, but Fathom aims to be a tad more opinionated & simpler to use. Also Piwik doesn't scale that well for heavy-traffic websites without throwing a lot of hardware at it.

Fathom is built in Go and only tracking aggregates, allowing it to run on surprisingly little beef. Benchmarks have us handling up to 20.000 pageviews per second on a single-core server while using less than 100MB of RAM.


I definitely have my eye on this one as an option for us in the future. Will try to find some time to make a contribution.


Hey Ben, that'd be awesome! But also; seeing how much you're already contributing to open-source and the community in general, don't sweat it! :)
