FrontlineSMS let users send, receive and manage SMS over a mobile network.

I've managed to get FrontlineSMS running on an ARM system, specifically the Raspberry Pi.

I've detailed the full process on my blog.

Essentially, the main problem is that isn't suitable for ARM.  So you need to install librxtx-java and replace the bundled .so that FrontlineSMS comes with.

Java runs pretty slowly, but the software all seems to work perfectly.

Is there a lightweight CLI version?

NB - only tried v1.6, not 2.0.

Hi Terence, very cool - thanks for sharing. We can look at including ARM binaries in future builds, although until we get a RaspberryPI of our own I'm not sure how easy it would be to test.  Any idea what the lead time on ordering them is at the moment?

There's no CLI-only option for 1.6, but next release of V2 (scheduled this week) will include --no-tray switch to disable the tray icon, and we'll be looking at providing standalone WARs in the next few weeks.
