Excellent Open Source Self-Hosted iOS App Analytics Solution


There are many different options for app analytics, but as far as self hosted solutions the pickings are slim – especially if you’d prefer not to pay licensing fees.

If you’d prefer to keep your app analytics in-house recently I came across an excellent app analytics solution that provides an open source community edition that you can host on your own server.

The features as listed on the Sourceforge page include:

– Real time data updates
– Impressive user interface
– Custom event tracking
– General dashboard view showing top platform, carrier, users, resolution
– Country and city level tracking
– User tracking
– User loyalty tracking
– Session tracking
– Session frequency tracking
– Device type and model tracking
– Carrier tracking
– Application version tracking
– Platform and platform version tracking
– Advanced user management to add administrators or users to an application or create global administrators to manage everything

Here’s an image from the source code page showing off one of the dashboard pages:


You can find Countly on Github here, and on Sourceforge here.

You can find full read more on the Countly home page where you can find a full working demo.

Looks like a great solution for self-hosted analytics.
