Issue #054 [WontFix/closed] - Remove Google Analytics tracking

Posted by bradydoll

What steps will reproduce the problem?

  1. Run any page of the web interface that loads webiopi.js
  2. Get tracked by Google
  3. ?
  4. Profit

WebIOPi version used? => 0.6.0

Python version used? => 3.2

Distro used? (WebIOPi has only been tested on Raspbian Wheezy) => Raspbian

Raspberry Pi board revision? (1 or 2) => 2

For Javascript side bugs, Browser? => All

Please provide any additional information below.

Please don't put Google Analytics tracking on everyone's personal servers. It's one thing to use GA on a public website, but to track peoples use of the program running on their personal machines with no notification that this tracking is taking place is unacceptable. Without the aid of Ghostery I may have never even noticed.

Fix: Delete the following lines from webiopi.js: 17, 113-120, 277

Please remove this from the code asap:

Tracking bugs do not belong in an open source project.

Asking THIS is UNACCEPTABLE It's not about tracking, it's about statistics... Almost all software use some kind of stats nowadays, specially on mobile devices, and you never notice/care about that.
