Hi everyone! Thought I would jump in here to contribute to the discussion given that I work at Astronomer (full disclosure).
As @robfallows pointed out, our Meteor package automatically tracks all methods and routes by default (although you can disable parts you don’t want.) What’s really cool is that whenever you update your app, Astronomer recognizes those changes and starts tracking them automatically so you never have to re-instrument. If you’re using something in conjunction with Meteor, we also have a JS snippet you can use to manually set additional events. Right now, you can send your data to just over 20 destinations, ranging from Google Analytics to Mixpanel to Amazon Redshift, and all of them standard for all users.
To your point @tdzido, we definitely still have some work to do with our messaging and the simple explanation is that we’ve been working with beta testers we speak with frequently and are only just starting to do more of an inbound effort. All of our support is handled through a community Slack Channel we invite sign ups to so that’s why you’re also not seeing much on the forums. I agree with you that we can do a better job of explaining what we do clearly and publicly and this will become more important as more conversations like this continue to occur.
Finally, Pricing - The product is free while we’re in beta for all but our largest users and after beta will continue to be free for <1MM events/month and then just $20/MM/month after that.
Happy to talk further via this discussion or sometime offline! My email is ben AT astronomer DOT io.
