Re: Chart Downloader/Updater Plugin

Rick,

I thought I would give a screen shot of my version of the plugin. I have it working now with all charts that NOAA and ACE provide (RNC and ENC). First is a shot of the chart downloader with a few catalogs. Next is a shot of my charts page. Notice that I don't ever list the top level directory (/home/Dan/Charts) I only list each subfolder.

The plugin correctly remembers all my catalogs each time I start O. So nothing is forgotten. The Linux implementation of wx is a bit better in my opinion. For example, the file chooser dialog gives the option to create a folder whereas on my Windows it does not.

The only issue I have is my groups feature has gone missing. I'm not sure if that is an artifact of the plugin or what happened. I'm sure it's something dumb I did.

Anyway, I think this plugin is pretty good right now. I have given Pavel my hacks to make it work with ACE ENC charts. We need to work on a permanent solution but at least the hack I made allows me to test all the catalogs and they all work as far as I have tested. I think a little tutorial could be given to a newbie and they would do fine with this version.

Any questions please let me know.

Re: Chart Downloader/Updater Plugin

Has anyon besides Pavel built this plugin from github under Windows and had it work?

I have cloned it via "git clone github.com/nohal/chartdldr_pi.git" on two different Windows computers. It will build (albeit with some disturbing warnings) but O will not load it. I have attached the opencpn.log created by my debug build of O.

These are the types of warnings I see during compile:

d:\gitopencpn\master\opencpn\plugins\chartdldr_pi\ src\tinyxml/tinyxml.h(774):warning C4251: 'TiXmlNode::value' : class 'std::basic_string<_Elem,_Traits,_Ax>' needs to have dll-interface to be used by clients of class 'TiXmlNode' [D:\GITOpenCPN\master\OpenCPN\build\plugins\chartdl dr_pi\chartdldr_pi.vcxproj]

I suspect this warning is trying to tell me something is wrong.

Re: Chart Downloader/Updater Plugin

Dan

I have also compiled and cpack for NSIS executable. There are ten warnings, (there were ten warnings before too (see previous note on this) but now they are different. I believe SethDart has made some changes for tinyxml for his compiles, those changes may have made some problems for windows build.

However, the plugin runs in Windows ok. I can download RNC and ENC files.
I have tried Inland and Brazil and they do not seem to work.

Incidentally, I've reorganized my chart files into "Charts" and "Charts-Inactive"
and scanning the database is much better. I had many many chart files, so just moving the ones I'm not going to use in the next year into another directory helps.

Have uploaded the most recent to OpenCPN Beta File Thingie. rguser rgpass see 3.2.2 Win PI

Re: Chart Downloader/Updater Plugin

Rick,

Thanks for the confirmation. It's probably a dll in the wrong place.

I am not a ham. My transmitters are a bit too big for ham work.

Re: Chart Downloader/Updater Plugin

Folks...
Would you mind NOT using this tracker at least until this plugin is released and stick with https://github.com/nohal/chartdldr_pi/issues ? It will make my life much easier.
Serge, I really appreciate your efforts, but at this development phase using github is way more convenient...

Thanks

Pavel

OK Pavel, no problem,

I suspend this project in T/F.

Re: Chart Downloader/Updater Plugin

All...
All the basic functionality is in and it is time to push the beta out of the door.
Get the setup packages for Windows and OS X from Sourceforge
For Ubuntu Linux and derivatives, the packages are now available from the standard beta PPA - all you need to do is
Code:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install opencpn-plugin-chartdldr
In case you used the testing 0.4 package, you have to first uninstall it using
Code:
sudo apt-get remove chartdldr_pi
Otherwise the new package will complain about conflicting files and refuse to install

Happy testing and let me know what you think

Pavel

Re: Chart Downloader/Updater Plugin

Pavel..
Just a first trivial issue:
Windows(XP) installer:
In "Chart Downloader Preferences"
"Default Path to Charts"
Theres a double back slash at the end of the suggested path:
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\opencpn\\Charts

Re: Chart Downloader/Updater Plugin

Pavel,

Do you still want to use GitHub for feature and bug tracking?

Yes, please. It is much better when the codebase is actively changed.

When I do that I get at the end:

Code:

Probably I have to do something but not sure what.

Re: Chart Downloader/Updater Plugin

Dan...
It is just a warning, you do not *have* to do anything. I suppose you added the line to APT sources manually and did not import the key (or something failed during the process). The right way to do it is
Code:
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:nohal/opencpn
or using the Software Center - both should take care of the key import.

Re: Chart Downloader/Updater Plugin

Pavel..
I've tested to download the Windows installer to XP and it's working fine.
I've performed some Brazil charts upload and expect that some charts, Ilha da Trindade, are claimed in the log file to be without chart datum the "downloader" works very fine. Very handy tool. Sometimes I wish I was on the other side of the Pond.

Re: Chart Downloader/Updater Plugin

Hakan...
Yes, the Brazilian charts are a bit messy - They obviously were not created with the same care the NOAA ones receive (look at the contents of the chart folder)
But it is still much better than what you get in Europe for the same price, that's for sure
