OpenCPN Extras Package

There is loads of really great extras that you guys have all contributed to OpenCPN over the years, however finding them is painful, especially for a new user.

So I would like to propose the "OpenCPN Extras Package" - hosted on github.

Git is available for all platforms, it supports all filetypes and will enable us to share and contribute in a centralized and controlled way. Github is free to join, and free to host open source repositories.

I've added many of the things I've found in these forums but I know there's heaps more I haven't found. I also don't know if the files I've added are actually the latest versions.

If it grows too large in the future we can break it up into submodules.

Please go ahead and fork the project, add move and change/update to your hearts content. Hopefully together we can create a really useful extras package.
