    Useful Addons: graphs1090, tar1090 et cetera

    Hello, i've been maintaining some addons for dump1090-fa, i've linked them sometimes but they might as well have their own thread here.
    They are meant for Raspbian Stretch and later, but they should work on Debian and Ubuntu as well.

    The graphs and tar1090 will work with other dump1090 versions, but dump1090-fa is still recommended!
    dump1090-fa is easy to install with the bundle installation.
    The bundle also allows you to use the old web interface if you like that or are used to it.

    Everything works fine with the Pi24 image if you install the dump1090-fa bundle first.

    dump1090-fa is as good as dump1090-mutability 1.15 in regards to reception.
    But it offers more data and is more complete.
    So there really is no reason to use 1.15 if you want to use one o the other addons below.

    graphs1090

    Graphs based on dump1090-tools by mutability and the adsb receiver project graphs.

    tar1090: Improved webinterface for dump1090-fa

    (should work for other dump1090 versions as well but might not display as much data)


    timelapse1090: history/playback interface for the local map (requires dump1090-fa)

    Is dump1090-fa better than v1.15 dev?
    I've seen lots of images and people usually getting the highest rate of messages on 1090-fa compare to 1.15? Or People using 1090-fa are using also better kit

    The demodulation is the same code as far as i know.
    So should be the same message rate.

    dump1090-fa can show you some additional parameters like IAS and TAS and some other details.
    Also the addons in this thread are meant for dump1090-fa, it's basically the current version of dump1090-mutability
    (the developer of dump1090-mutability is now working on dump1090-fa)

    Ok cool, thanks for the explanation. I'm waiting for second dongle to arrive and then will test both 1090fa and 1.15 on the same antenna and location, let's see what I will get.

    Any difference you find will be due to other factors.

    It is the same code, only other parts of the program have changed.

    tar1090 shouldn't interfere with the graphs. neither my graphs nor other graphs.

    If you switched from dump1090-mutability to dump1090-fa, you'll have to delete collectd.conf:
    sudo rm /etc/collectd/collectd.conf
    Then reinstall graphs1090.

    Hello, newbie here. Will these addons work with the PI24 image?
