SBFspot collector image

Pre requisites

  • solarexplorer/sbfspot-sqlite3-pi-base is available
  • bluetooth is setup in your docker host / raspberry pi
  • a user sbfspot is created with uid 2000

Running SBFspot collector

docker run -it -v /etc/localtime:/etc/localtime:ro -v /home/sbfspot/data:/var/smadata -v /home/sbfspot/config/SBFspot.cfg:/opt/sbfspot/SBFspot.cfg --net=host --privileged --name sbfspot-collector solarexplorer/sbfspot-collector

N.B. in this run command the config file for SBFspot is externalized as well as de data directory. This way an update of the container will retain your data.

Configure crontab on Docker host

If you want the SBFspot collector container to be run automatically you can use standard crontab functionality to run it at set intervals;

Run the following command as root:

(crontab -u sbfspot -l 2>/dev/null; echo "*/5 5-23 * * * docker start -a sbfspot-collector > /dev/null 2>&1") | crontab -u sbfspot -
