As you’ve witnessed, the OCaml.org team has been hard at work to make the site the best resource to learn OCaml and discover the ecosystem.
Since the launch of V3 in April last year, we’ve revamped the centralised documentation site based on community feedback, and we’re currently doing the same for the Learn area and the documentation. We’re planning to revisit the Blog and Community sections next.
While we’re receiving tons of qualitative feedback that indicates that we’re moving in the right direction, it’s been a challenge to measure the impact of the decisions we take. Are users of the site able to find the Standard Library documentation more easily? How many users who install OCaml end up reading the documentation? Are people using the new OCaml Changelog and the Job board? A lot of questions are currently difficult to answer and would allow us to make better decisions to improve the experience on the site.
We’re still unwaveringly committed to protecting OCaml.org’s visitors’ privacy. To address our lack of data on the site’s usage while respecting the principles we’ve adopted, we’ve selected Plausible as a possible way to get usage statistics.
We plan on rolling out Plausible for OCaml.org in the coming weeks.
Do you have any questions or concerns with using Plausible on OCaml.org?
