Analytics

By default, Buckaroo will report usage statistics to our servers. These logs allow us to improve Buckaroo by targeting real-world usage. All logs are transferred over HTTPS and are not shared with any third-party.

What is Shared?

The analytics events are as follows:

{
  session, // Random UUID generated on installation
  data: {
    os, // The OS name, e.g. "macOS"
    version, // The version of Buckaroo installed
    command // The command sent to Buckaroo
  }
}

If in doubt, please refer to the source-code of Buckaroo or drop us an email.

Disabling Analytics

If you wish to disable analytics, follow these steps:

  1. Launch Buckaroo at least once:
buckaroo version
  1. Open the buckaroo.json file in your Buckaroo home folder:
open ~/.buckaroo/config.json
  1. Remove the property “analytics”. For example:
{
  "cookBooks": [
    {

      "url": "git@github.com:loopperfect/buckaroo-recipes.git"
    }
  ]
}
