Fathom Analytics for Craft CMS
Statistics and chart widgets for Fathom Lite.
A word about privacy & Fathom
If you care about privacy and website-analytics, I encourage you to read some of my toughts about it, explaining why I made the move from Google Analytics to Fathom.
Although Fathom Lite does not collect any personally identifiable information (and is GDPR compliant), it currently still uses a cookie (and is not PECR compliant without a cookie notice). If you need a cookie-free solution, I suggest switching to Fathom Pro. Fathom Lite might become cookie-free in a future update though
This plugin requires Craft CMS 3.0.0-beta.23 or later and Fathom Lite
To install the plugin, follow these instructions.
Open your terminal and go to your Craft project:
Then tell Composer to load the plugin:
composer require stenvdb/fathom-analytics
In the Control Panel, go to Settings → Plugins and click the “Install” button for Fathom Analytics.
Fathom Analytics Overview
This plugin only works with Fathom Lite, the self-hosted open source version. Reasons being Fathom does not have an official documented API. Once Fathom releases a documented API (which might be in the works), I'll consider providing support for Fathom Pro. In the meantime, this plugin uses Fathom's already great internal API.
Configuring Fathom Analytics
This plugin obviously requires Fathom running on one of your servers. Once it is up and running (which is super easy), configure Fathom Analytic's settings:
// The domain name where Fathom is hosted. This is also the URL where the tracker code is pointed to. 'baseUri' => '$FATHOM_BASE_URI', // The tracking ID of this site. You can find the ID in your tracking code snippet, e.g.: ABCDE 'trackingId' => '$FATHOM_TRACKING_ID', 'username' => '$FATHOM_USERNAME', 'password' => '$FATHOM_PASSWORD'
