Thank you for checking out the docs for the
Boerman.AprsClient library! This library enables you to rig up a fully working APRS (Automatic Position Reporting System) in a matter of seconds. This library exists of both an APRS message parser and a TCP client.
This project has been kickstarted by code found on aprs.codeplex.com. The following changes have been made to this library:
- The TCP client which was bundled has been replaced by the
Boerman.Networkinglibrary to facilitate high throughput with low CPU utilization.
- An object oriented wrapper has been crafted for this library to be usable a bit more like a module.
- Event handlers have been added to be able to plug in more easily on incoming messages.
- Support for OGN flavoured APRS has been added.
The goal of this project is to have a high performance (real world proven with about 30,000,000 million messages/8 hours) and stable parsing and client library.
The compiled libraries available at NuGet target .NET Standard 2.0. Therefore, this library is cross platform compatible under the .NET framework.
It is possible to use the same package in projects targeting .NET Framework 4.6.1 and onwards.
The Boerman.AprsClient library is available through NuGet. To install the library using the NuGet command line:
To install the library through the .NET CLI you can use the following command:
dotnet add package Boerman.AprsClient
Building From Scratch
You will be able to build the library from scratch by cloning the git repository and restoring the NuGet packages.
