A Linux Eddystone Beacon
A tiny Eddystone beacon for Linux, in pure C. It supports broadcasting of URL, UID and TLM Eddystone frames.
See https://github.com/google/eddystone/ for details about Eddystone.
The only dependency at this time is bluetooth headers and library
- NID and BID are used as strings, add support for hex input
- NID and BID defaults to 0123456789 ABCDEF
- UID can not be set
- Add AltBeacon
- Add iBeacon
Bluetooth LE requires root or capabilities set:
- Run "make setcap" to set capabilities flags on the binary so sudo/root is not needed
- ./beacon url [NID BID]
