Google Analytics tracking

This CLI tool will ask you if you allow to send anonymous data to Google Analytics. This allows us to see how the tool is used and improve your experience in the future (by, for example, providing better default options). None of your data are sent to the analytics server. You can check collected data in source files.

You can always say no when asked to share the data or pass --no-ga argument when executing the command. The tool detects CI environment and skips any GA questions or tracking. If the build fails due the question pass the --no-ga option.
