A package to block web-requests to tracking-servers
do-not-track from Atom install view or use the command-line equivalent:
$ apm install do-not-track
Change to your Atom packages directory:
# Powershell$ cd $Env:USERPROFILE\.atom\packages
:: Command Prompt$ cd %USERPROFILE%\.atom\packages
Linux & macOS
$ cd ~/.atom/packages/
Clone the repository as
$ git clone https://github.com/idleberg/atom-do-not-track do-not-track
cd do-not-track && npm install
By default, this package blocks requests for Atom Metrics, Google Analytics, Google Tag Manager and Matomo/Piwik and some others. This behaviour can be changed in the package settings.
Additionally, you can block custom URL patterns in the packages settings pane. You can open it by clicking on the Do Not Track status-bar or by running Do Not Track: Toggle Settings from your command palette.
Note: Only web-requests that run within Atom's main process can be blocked. Parts of Atom, as well as some third-party packages, use external processes to establish connections – these cannot be blocked by this package. Examples for this behaviours are
apm, the TabNine package, and potentially all packages using the Language Server Protocol (LSP).
