Live IP Software Toolkit to assist EBU members in the implementation of IP based facilities

Build Status


LIST is composed by:

  • a set of libraries that handle the ST2110 standards suite;
  • a browser-based application that analyzes previously captured network packets as pcap files.

Main Features

Quickly understand if your streams are ST2110 compliant, without configuration!
See the capture's content
PTP Analysis
Drill drown on each stream and understand what's going on

Dematerialized version

We deployed an online version that you can start using right away.

Run - Quick-start

The easiest way to quickly use LIST application is via Docker. Choose one of the below's options that suits you the best.

Using Docker Hub's Image

You'll need:

  • Docker >= v15
  • Docker-compose >= v1.20
version: "3"
    image: influxdb:1.4.2
      - influxdb:/var/lib/influxdb

    image: mongo:latest
      - mongo:/data/db

    image: ebutech/pi-list:v1.3 #replace by any version available @ Docker Hub
      - "8080:8080"
      - "3030:3030"
      - influxdb
      - mongo
      - listserver:/home/


You're good to go: http://localhost:8080


You can either build locally on your host with an appropriate environment or in a Docker container that produces a reference environment.


  • CMake >= v3.9
  • Conan >= v1
  • C++17 compiler
  • NodeJS >= v8

The sources

The project is made of a master repo plus third-party components.

git clone
git submodule update --init --recursive

Linux (Debian) host build

Additional requirements:

  • uuid-dev
  • libpcap-dev

Fetch the project, build the dependencies and the project:


Docker build

Docker >= v15 is needed.

From the top directory, use the docker wrapper script:

Usage:  ./scripts/ <init|build|bash>
    init   Generate a Dockerfile and the Docker image list_dev_env
    build  Build LIST project using a container based on list_dev_env
    bash   Start bash in the container for dev or troubleshoot.


A new folder release will appear on the top-level directory of this repository. It contains the artefact to be installed on the LIST server and all docker-compose files to instantiate all the micro-services.

cd release



  • CMake >= v3.9
  • Conan >= v1
  • Docker >= v15
  • Docker-compose >= v1.20
  • NodeJS >= v8
  • C++17 compatible compiler

We use cmake as the meta build system and require most of our third-party dependencies using conan. Our rule of thumb is to include dependencies using conan when possible. Conan is integrated with CMake, so it should be transparent within the building process.

In order to run and develop this application on your computer, you need this additional dependencies (you can do all this steps via ./scripts/ script):

  • FFmpeg (only if you're going to run LIST locally - ignore this if you're going to run it on Docker)
  • uuid-dev (only on linux - sudo apt-get install uuid-dev)
  • libpcap-dev (only on linux)


If you meet all the pre-requisites, a quick way to start right away is:

git clone
git submodule update --init --recursive

To run cmake, you can do:

mkdir build
cd build
cmake .. -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release
cmake --build .

Or with Visual Studio:

mkdir build
cd build
cmake .. -G "Visual Studio 15 Win64"

And then open the solution file in the build folder.

CMake usage and configuration

We use Cmake as the build system for LIST. All the options bellow can be combined together

Option Description Default
USE_PCH Use Cotire for Pre-Compiled Headers (Windows only) ON on Windows, OFF on others
BUILD_DEMOS Build demo applications OFF
BUILD_TESTS Build unit tests for each library OFF
BUILD_APPS Build LIST applications OFF
BUILD_ALL Build everything OFF

The folder config/cmake contains some cmake files that are used project-wide in order to simplify CMake usage and extra functionality.

SDK Structure

The LIST SDK is composed by a set of libraries which can be used separately:

Library Name Contains Link as
Core Core functionality such as math functions, platform-dependent code, IO abstractions, memory management and media description ebu_list_core
Net Ethernet, IPv4 and UDP handling ebu_list_net
Pcap Reading of PCAP files ebu_list_pcap
PTP PTP decoding ebu_list_ptp
RTP RTP decoding and SDP handling ebu_list_rtp
ST2110 Parsing and analysis of ST2110 format ebu_list_st2110

Each project has the following structure:

lib/            --> contains library files; nested folders represent namespaces
    include/    --> public .h files
    src/        --> private .h files and .cpp files

unit_tests/     --> test files
CMakeLists.txt  --> definitions for both lib and unit_tests

Use LIST SDK as an external Library

Just use cmake's add_subdirectory() and it will work out-of-the-box.


  1. Fork it
