cloud or 100% desktop?

Discuss the jamovi platform, possible improvements, etc.

First time post :-)

I've searched the site and haven't been able to find an answer to these questions.
Does Jamovi require an internet connection to work?
Does any of the data analyzed within Jamovi leave the users desktop?
Is it being uploaded to a server in any way without the user's awareness?
I'm asking because I want to recommend Jamovi to some of my non-data-science colleagues as an alternative to spss for running simple descriptive statistics.

Thanks so much. I really like Jamovi - I find it much more interactive and engaging for new analysts. The flow between the menus and instantly-updating results is lovely.

hi lee,

nothing leaves the user's computer - it's a self-contained desktop application.

in the future we'll introduce a web-based version, but we'll always provide a self-contained desktop version.

cheers

Hi Jonathon,

would it already be possible to let jamovi run solely in a browser. If I start the flatpak I usually get three localhost ports that I can use in a browser for the jamovi session, but the full GUI has to run. Is there already some kind of hidden switch to allow it "headless"?

haha, just don't try copy/paste, or more than a handful of features that rely on electron :P

still working on their html5 counterparts.

Are there any plans to ever move it to the cloud or make that option available, Jonathon?
