[New Feature] Background Geolocation "Headless Mode" for Android Posted on 4 Feb 16:25 , 0 comments

Background Geolocation Console Posted on 19 Dec 10:01 , 0 comments
A great way to field-test the background-geolocation plugin is to use our test-server which we provide open-source at Github background-geolocation-console. It's a simple node-server and web-application for quickly viewing your device tracking. It's very easy to setup and configure the background-geolocation plugin to post to it.
Android Oreo (version 8) Posted on 19 Dec 09:03 , 0 commentsYes, in spite of Android Oreo's strict new Background Execution Limits, the Background Geolocation plugin fully supports Android 8. The caveat however, is that the foregroundService: true option is now enforced.
Here's a nice little presentation by Harry Tormey at React Chicago which clearly lays out the complexities involved with tracking a device's location in the background and why this needs to be done directly with Native APIs.
This is exactly what the Background Geolocation plugin does for you.
(Watch for his recommendation to use Transistor Software's react-native-background-geolocation plugin at 19:42, thanks Harry ;)
