Ponder's telemetry implementation is 100% open-source. The telemetry service (opens in a new tab) (part of
@ponder/core) runs on the user's device and submits event data via HTTP POST requests to the telemetry collection endpoint (opens in a new tab) hosted at
The implementation generates a stable anonymous unique identifier for the user's device and stores it at the system default user config directory (opens in a new tab). This config also stores the user's opt-out preference and a stable salt used to hash potentially sensitive data such as file paths and the git remote URL.
