GoatCounter v2.4.1 Release Notes

Release Date: 2022-11-15 // 2 months ago
    • 🛠 Fix regression that caused the charts for SQLite to be off.

Previous changes from v2.4.0

  • This is still as "v0" because some details may still change.

    • 0️⃣ Default API ratelimit is now 4 requests/second, rather than 4 requests/10 seconds. You can use the -ratelimit flag to configure this.

    • 🔀 Can now also merge paths instead of just deleting them (the "Settings → Delete pageviews" tab was changed to "Manage pageviews").

    • ➕ Add goatcounter dashboard, which uses the new API to display the dashboard in the terminal (only a basic non-interactive overview for now).

    • ➕ Add a "Show fewer numbers" user setting; this is intended to still give a reasonably useful overview of what happens on your site but prevent an “obsession” over the exact number of visitors and stats.

    • No longer store or display "pageviews": always store and display "visitors" instead.

    The visitor count is the only thing that's interesting in pretty much all cases; the "raw" pageviews are still stored for some future purposes (such as "time on page"), but are no longer stored in most other contexts.

    • ➕ Add infrastructure for "dark mode".

    This is not yet enabled by default because all "dark mode" themes look "bad" on my eyes, and I'm not really sure what works well for people who do like it.

    So some help is needed here. See: https://github.com/arp242/goatcounter/issues/586#issuecomment-1287995673
