Going to install and check out the extension today! One question: does this track only web monetization that occurs through the Coil browser plugin or does it capture server-side monetization payments as well?

Thanks so much for checking out Akita!

We track any monetization events that can detected client-side as defined in the Web Monetization spec here: webmonetization.org/docs/api; i.e. we take note of document.monetization.state and browser events such as monetizationstart. We also check for monetized iframes and include that data in the extension.

Akita should work for any Web Monetization Provider that follows the Web Monetization spec, including Coil. We don't have server-side tracking, but any alternative implementations of payment streaming that emit the Web Monetization events from the spec should be handled by us.

Hope this clarifies things! Happy to provide more explanation/detail if this didn't quite hit the mark. :)
