Background Geolocation Console
A great way to field-test the background-geolocation plugin is to use our test-server which we provide open-source at Github background-geolocation-console. It’s a simple node-server and web-application for quickly viewing your device tracking. It’s very easy to setup and configure the background-geolocation plugin to post to it.
The background geolocation console is particularly useful for geofence-testing. Geofence transitions are marked by coloured dot on the geofence edge ) with a black polyline pointing to the triggering location.
- Red: exit.
- Green: entry.
- Yellow: dwell.
If you want to post to the tracking console in your own app, it’s very easy: The plugin contains a helper method #transistorTrackerParams to compose a
params config suitable for consumption by the server:
After booting your app to record some locations, visit the tracking console in your browser at http://tracker.transistorsoft.com/your-custom-username.
