Introducing archived sites

I'm happy to introduce the ability to archive your site data. You might be running that blog, site or page that is no longer used — but you want to hold onto the data for archival purpose — look at those good times, or bad. Well, now you can. Enabled for paid subscribers, just head on over to your site settings and at the bottom find the "Archive Site" setting.This does a few things once you confirm that you want to archive: • It'll immediately pause any stats being collected. • It'll remove any public viewing stats, if enabled, stop...

Unique hits data

During the weekend I added the ability to surface unique hit data, or as some call it, unique sessions. If you're subscribed to the paid plan, you have the ability to enable unique hit data to be collected. Granted, this has been available for some time now, but never surfaced.Unique hits basically pass a one time random token to the browser that is visiting your site and saves it in a place called session storage. Session storage is super temporary and is only persisted as long as you're on the website, which means when you close the site, it will...

A new custom way to ignore hits

As I'm developing Scribbles I wanted an easy way to ignore hits of logged in users, without having to do any trickery with adding an ignore via localStorage. The need for this came because a blog could have Tinylytics enabled, and if it was your blog, it would always register a hit — and like any good blogger you probably check your blog a lot. On top of this, the blog shows up on the main scribbles.page domain, for example a blog could be here: scribbles.page/updates. It doesn't have to be "updates" as such, but you catch my drift. However,...

Support for SPA apps

Last week I had an interested support request by Jack, who is running an Astro based site that basically is an SPA (Single Page App) app. Astro uses the "View Transition API" (whatever that is 😅) — however that caused some issues with the Tinylytics embed script. So behold, I made a special version of the script that handles SPA's much better. It's not perfect as it requires a bit of manual tweaking, but fear not. One thing to remember about the embed script is, is that it's dynamic — which means depending on what you want, for example kudos,...

New update blog

Forever it seems that I wanted an update blog for Tinylytics, going as far as creating an easy to manage changelog page. But nothing beats writing in a dedicated editor that's easy to use — so I built my own with Scribbles. I just can't help it! I love creating. My plan is to compliment the changelog with some longer articles to explain the features in a little bit more detail. I usually share "dev" stories on my own blog, but that's cumbersome to use and requires a little TLC — so now it's in one "official" place. Feel free...

A joyful analytics tool for small websites, that's easy to use.
