OpenCPN Version 5 Plugins

Hello Windows OCPN 5 Beta Testers...


The complete OpenCPN plugin universe for the upcoming OpenCPN 5 Release is available for testing now at:


https://opencpn.org/OpenCPN/atp/48fb3bOH/5plugs.html


Take a look, install your favorites into the current OpenCPN 5 Beta, and let us know what you discover.




And for Mac and linux users, let us know which plugins you want to see immediately. This feedback will help us to prioritize our development efforts going forward.


Thanks
Dave

Dave,
regarding plugins for the Linux Ubuntu 16.04 / O5 environment, these are my votes: 'nmeaconverter', 'logbookkonni' and 'oesenc-pi'.
Regards

Re: OpenCPN Version 5 Plugins

Hi, is it possible to save the file downloaded for UK Tides plugin? If I am crossing the North Sea from Norway I will download Tides for 7 days and I might not want all waypoints active for three days during passage. Only choise I see as it is today is to turn of wapoints and rutes, but I still want my rutes visible on such a trip.

This is the wrong thread for that question. Try this:UKTidalEvents Plugin

Rasbats will probably answer your question.

My take is that it's not possible due to Admiralty restrictions.
I think the plugin uses a public web interface to "Easy Tide" Select Port - EasyTide - on-line tidal predictions from the UKHO.
Just copy and save the data you need.

The tides already built into OpenCPN is surely good enough for your trip.
Tidal predictions are never 100 % accurate for many reasons.
For fun I compared the tides for the noontime high in Aberdeen today 190320.

Easy Tide: 12:46 4.4m
OpenCPN: 12:49 4.39m

No difference at all for practical purposes.

The "newest version" is very old, mid 2017, and does not work with O5.
Obviously the PPA needs updating.
If you can do with an Ubuntu 18.04 amd64 package here you go...

Hello,


if you asked me, Logbookkonni comes first and then the statusbar...


Thank you very much for your work!

Re: OpenCPN Version 5 Plugins

We have a request for the oeSENC plug-in for "Ubuntu Artful Aardvark" - this is Ubuntu 17.10
Would need the pointer for the corresponding repository or version of the plug-in for this environment.

Why somebody runs an outdated Ubuntu (not LTS) is not the question asked...

Thanks

Hubert

Hubert...

Someone would have to install this outdated, unsupported version of Ubuntu and do the build, it is not available for builds on Launchpad anymore.

Or maybe a package for another release may work - Either the Bionic one, if not, the Xenial one. Either the person asking the question may try it herself, or someone has to install this outdated, unsupported version of Ubuntu and try it.

Why does someone use something with 6 months of support and ask other people to invest their effort to supporting it 18 moths later is kind of a mystery, of course...
