Using your SBS-1 or Radarbox with Google Maps

With our small example you can connect your Linux PC to your SBS-1 or Radarbox server and you can show all contacts in your webbrowser on port 8080.
Simply download the short example and follow the steps from the included README file or read the following short description.

You can start the webserver tool direct from the commandline.
If '' is not installed on your system, you can copy or move 
the file to '/lib/' or '/usr/lib' or some different location. If the path is
outside of the systems library path you can set the environement with:

export LD_LIBARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib/

If no parameters are given, the tool connects to the SBS-1 server of libhomeradar.
To connect to your own server, start webserver with:

./webserver <servername> <serverport>

After started - and if you cannot see any errors - you can point your
browser to http://localhost:8080/

Please note, that the 'webtemplate.html' must be in the same directory as
your webserver binary and you should stay in this directory.

EXAMPLE: If webserver is located in /usr/local/bin and you are currently in
your home directory /home/username and you start /usr/local/bin/webserver
this will fail, because webserver will look for 'webtemplate.html' in the
folder '/home/username'

In the pre-compiled binary, the public transfer is enabled (see line #108 in source)
The transfer is 100% anonym and can help us to improve the data quality
of our page. If you wish to disabled the public transfer, your should remove
line #108 (or comment it out) and compile the webserver again.

gcc -s -Wall -O3 webserver.c -L./ -lhomeradar -lpthread -o webserver

(-L should be set to the directory where your is located)
