Straightforward analytics that don't involve shipping your data to "Someone Else"

## Project description

# Houston Houston is drop-in-place analytics software for Django projects that stores 100% of usage data in-house. At no point is data sent to third parties.

There are a number of projects in the Django ecosystem that facilitate integration with third party analytics software but most of these entail sending client usage to a third party, most likely Google. This is an acceptable strategy in some cases, Google Analytics is a great product that’s easy to integrate with. But if you’re developing software where your users might be hesitant to report their every page view to a third party, especially one with a history of illegally disclosing said data, you might want to consider keeping your users’ usage data on servers you control.

## Usage - Add django-houston as a dependency in your requirements.txt file - Add Houston to your INSTALLED_APPS setting - Include the Houston urls at some path in your urls.py file: url(r’^houston/’, include(‘Houston.urls’)) - Include the tracking fragment on any pages where views should be tracked: {% include “Houston/tracking.html” %}

It’s recommended to include the tracking fragment near the end of the document after any page critical scripts to minimize user impact of tracking, although you can include it anywhere.
