Repl Analytics

Introduction

I've been using repl talk for about 2 years and getting people to upvote your talk posts can be annoying (upvote if you can relate). Sometimes your app that took 5 hours to make could get 5 upvotes while a simple snake game gets 20 upvotes. I created this simple tool that you can use to track how well your repl talk posts are doing. You simply put a simple badge on your post and it will start tracking in seconds.

How it works

You put a simple image on your repl talk post (example: ![replanalytics](https://replanalytics.repl.co/track/test/badge.png?preview=1)) and it will track the user with cookies across repltalk. You can see how many people actually saw your post and how many of them decided to upvote your post and much more!

DO NOT TRACK requests

I respect people who don't want to be tracked on the internet with third-party cookies and I will be adding a way to disable the ability to be tracked by enabling the Do Not Track setting on your browser.

Get Started

Get started now by going to the website (https://replanalytics) and logging in with replit! You can then start tracking your post. I've set up an example post here.

Badges

You can use different styles of badges to fit your need or just make it completely invisible.

Man I hate those simple snake games that get tons of upvotes

Eyyy, super nice!

One suggestion, could you make the badge so that either we can choose to center it or align it in some other way?

What makes a view a unique view.

@cuber1515 Basically when someone views your posts, the unique views go up and they get a special cookie added in their browser. If they come to your post again, the unique view won't go up but the total views will.

Hey @HackermonDev , nice project!
Just been wondering how things are going for you because you have been... quiet especially on github in which I opened an issue.

HackermonDev (2074)

@StringentDev Oh, where did you open the issue on? I've actually been really active online lately because its summer.

HackermonDev (2074)

@HackermonDev Ah, I just saw the issue now! I didn't notice you had created the GitHub issue on the repo.

How do my 2-upvote posts have 0 views (the badges also aren't showing up)? (I didn't upvote my own post) Other than that, it is very good.

HackermonDev (2074)

@AliCoder You need to add the badges to your repltalk posts and it doesn't know the number of views on the talk post before the badge was added so the data might be incorrect for old posts.
