  • Open-source, self-hosted location tracking with OwnTracks and Grafana

    After setting up the client side, a server-side component to receive the OwnTracks app's requests is still missing. OwnTracks ships with its Recorder, which is a small and simple web application written in C. However, I did not like it a lot, as it does not look particularly beautiful and is very limited regarding its functionality. I rather wanted to visualize my data in Grafana. But to get it there, it first needs to be persisted to a database.
