Application Name: shoginn-dump1090

Application Site: https://github.com/flightaware/dump1090

Github Repo: https://github.com/ShoGinn/dump1090

Docker Hub: https://hub.docker.com/r/shoginn/dump1090 @ShoGinn❤️

Template Repo: https://github.com/FoxxMD/unraid-docker-templates

 

Overview

 

dump1090 is a program that outputs ADSB data by decoding it from a software-accessible radio device. This data can be used to identify and track aircraft. This application works well with these other community apps:

 

 

 

Usage

 

dump1090 is typically used in conjunction with one or more other applications that consume the data it outputs. This application template provides default port mapping for the two types of data feeds, raw and BEAST, which these other applications will consumes.

 

You must map a compatible host device into this container in order for dump1090 to work properly (instructions linked). In most cases this is an RTL-SDR usb device.

@PSYCHOPATHiO Gone are the days where only the container your rtl-sdr device is attached to can use it -- now that you can expose the port it is feeding to anything can consume it!

 

I didn't have time to get these published today but I have templates for flightradar24 and flightaware that I will hopefully get published tomorrow. You can consume the adsb data from dump1090 using those dockers. @ShoGinn has additional dockers I haven't had a chance to look at yet that can also consume this data. Perhaps a self-hosted flight tracker web ui as well? :)

 

Stay tuned! I'll have more apps within this ecosystem up shortly (and will edit the OP when they are)

@jandro4321 The dockerfile does not expose port 8080 (which is where the internal webserver serves from) and I'm also not sure if any extra is required to start the internal webserver, other than starting dump1090. This is a question @ShoGinn would be able to answer!

 

However you can also use shoginn-vrs (in Community Apps) to get a much more fully featured aircraft tracking app and use this app as the data source for it.

That's perfect, thanks.

I created the dump1090 docker to only be the binary.. the webpage is just a json dump that is read.. you can always add --write-json and then find the lighthttpd config and public_html files..

 

But the VRS is a much better way of getting the information.

Thanks! I have changed for CI/CD for my repos to now include both latest and the commit as part of the docker hub tags..

I did this only because having just latest was bad practice if something went screwy
