Docker based GPS Tracker with mosquitto, node-red and zanzito



I wrote a blog post about setting up your own GPS tracking system with node-RED, Eclipse Mosquitto and Zanzito. Zanzito is an android app which sends sensor data of your smartphone to any message broker. I used node-red for pulling the info out of mosquitto, manipulate the JSON and forward it to worldmap. I have to say that was really easy and fun especially when you are not a developer like me.

I work for but this tutorial works of course for other hoster as well. If anyone knows an iphone app similar to zanzito, it would be nice to share this info.
