At some point in time I found myself needing to extract a customer logo from a custom icon font. Since finding the solution required some homework, I’ll share the results here to save you some time in case you stumble upon this via a search engine.
Google Analytics is hard to beat: it’s super easy to implement, it’s the market standard for analytics, it provides valuable insights and on top of that, it’s free.

at listenInCluster (net.js:1348:12)
at doListen (net.js:1487:7)
at processTicksAndRejections (internal/process/task_queues.js:81:21)
This doesn’t really give us much information to work with. Since I couldn’t find a solution on the web within a few minutes, this is my contribution for anyone running into the same problem.
