Anyone using Piwik with Github Pages


If so… how?

Piwik requires a server installation. I’m currently running it for my wife’s site on a server through a hosting company that we pay for. But the site is already static and I’m wanting to convert it to jekyll (mainly for fun) and host it on GH pages (to save money).

Trying to find a free/extremely cheap way to install piwik somewhere so I can keep using it. Thanks!


Does $5/mo count as extremely cheap? If yes, you can spin up a $5/mo droplet at DigitalOcean and run your own Piwik instance there.

The only downside is you would have to maintain your server up-to-date.

Other than that it seems to be a good option for what you are looking for.

Hope it helps.
