Hi, The idea is to develop a generic library/plugin, which anyone could use for analytics. The backend can be any storage and The Qt Company does not provide that.
We plan to use the same backend, which we already use in online installers to collect statistics about installations. At least in case of Qt Creator, the plan is to make some analysis results available for the community. Obviously, we do not do that for our commercial tooling. Analytics is opt-in and disabled by default in Qt Creator. We plan to ask user in the installer, if the user wish to participate in Qt UX improvement. If the answers is no, the analytics plugin is never installed. When the creator is started for the first time, it will show a dialog, consisting a list of collected data items and an option to enable/disable the plugin. There will be a new output pane, which shows collected data, conversions methods, if any used, and transmitted data to the user. -- Tino On 22/02/2018, 15.26, "Simon Hausmann" <simon.hausm...@qt.io<mailto:simon.hausm...@qt.io>> wrote: Hi, Can you provide a bit more information about how this plugin / frontend fits into the Qt project?
