HFOS - The Hackerfleet Operating System
A collaborative and modular infrastructure for your data.
- Geo Information Use a sophisticated map to annotate and review geographical information
- Vehicle support Attach a sailyacht, your camper or pack one in your backpack
- Project planning Issue tracking for collaborative teams
- Modular Expandable with integrated modules, build your own
- Cloud independent Run nodes on your own infrastructure
There is more than one way of installing HFOS, see the quickstart instructions for those.
The simplest way is to use the supplied installation script:
$ sudo ./install
The installation produces a lot of output which is automatically piped into 'output.log'. It installs all dependencies then sets up a user account and the system's services. This assumes, that you're not running another web server on port 443 and that your firewall is configured to allow communications on that port. HFOS modules may require additional open ports, to find out about that, read their readme files.
If you run into trouble or get any unexpected errors, contact us or try the complex installation procedure.
The system is modular, so you can install what you need and leave other things.
A lot of the included modules are still Work in Progress, so help out, if you're interested in a powerful - cloud independent - collaboration tool suite.
These are 'official' Hackerfleet developed modules. If you'd like to contribute your own, ping email@example.com, to get it added to the list.

Many of these are not yet fully usable, so please help out and perhaps take ownership of one (or more) of them!
Navigation (Hackerfleet) modules
We primarily focused on navigation tools, so these are currently the 'more usable' modules. They are far from complete, see the WiP list below.
Obligatory Warning: Do not use for navigational purposes! Always have up to date paper maps and know how to use them!
|anchor||Automatic anchor safety watcher|
|busrepeater||Tool to repeat navigation data bus frames to other media|
|logbook||Displaying and manual logging of important (nautical) events|
|maps||(Offline) moving maps with shareable views/layers|
|navdata||Navigational data module|
|nmea||NMEA-0183 Navigation data and AIS bus parser|
|webguides||Importer for skipperguide.de wiki content into the map|
Work in progress
- Full GDAL based vector chart support (Currently only raster charts)
- Dynamic Logbook
- GRIB data (in charts)
- Navigation aides, planning
- Datalog, automated navigational data exchange
- Crew management, more safety tools
- wireless crew network and general communications
