I’m looking for a #FOSS alternative to things like “find my friends” or the old “google latitude”. Basically I want to allow a few trusted people to know where I am and vice-versa.

It needs to be cross-platform (iOS, Android, Linux, perhaps web for viewing) and any server components need to be self-hostable (mqtt based perhaps?).

I’d build it myself but I don’t really want to support android and iOS 😂
