Is there an open source application which allows to share my location in real time? I'm looking for a fully open source solution, that is open source client as well as open source server software.

It doesn't have to be scalable or anything, I just want to share my location to whoever has the link to the application on my server.

This is not a duplicate of Alternative to Google Latitude? - I want a self-hosted application (on my own server), not on some non-Google third party server

OpenGTS provides fleet tracking.

Given that it's open source, it's always possible someone (you?) could develop a free app as well.

    Why is this answer accepted? While OpenGTS is cool for the server side of things, the linked client side isn't open source. Aug 4, 2013 at 19:41
  • Because ND Geek linked to a paid app, but a free one exists too. Here: code.google.com/p/android-opengts

OwnTracks allows you to keep track of your own location. You can build your private location diary or share it with your family and friends. OwnTracks is open-source and uses open protocols for communication so you can be sure your data stays secure and private.
