User Statistics

As an open source project, we collect anonymous usage statistics to prioritize and find product gaps. This is optional and may be turned off by changing the configuration file:

inside ~/.ploomber/stats/config.yaml Change stats_enabled to False.

The data we collect is limited to:

  • The Ploomber version currently running.

  • A generated UUID, randomized when the initial install takes place, no personal or any identifiable information.

  • Environment variables: The OS architecture Ploomber is used in (Python version etc.)

  • Information about the different product phases: installation, API calls and errors.

  • For users who explicitly stated their email, we collect an email address.

Version updates

If there’s an outdated version, ploomber will alert it through the console every second day in a non-invasive way. You can stop this checks for instance if you’re running in production and you’ve locked versions. The check can be turned off by changing the configuration file:

inside ~/.ploomber/stats/config.yaml Change version_check_enabled to False.
