PI Installer

PI Installer is still in its early stages....Alpha version. We need understanding and knowledgeable programmers and users to try it out and test it. We need testers for all of the supported OS Windows (mingw and msvc), Linux (xenial, trusty flatpak) and MacOS.

Being a tester, requires download of a special version of OpenCPN which has PI Installer already merged into the program. This is found here https://github.com/OpenCPN/OpenCPN/issues/1552

Then go to Options > Plugins, click on the "+" to open PI Installer and try to install and run each of the trial plugins. Then try uninstalling the plugins.

Please confirm and record your OS and any successful operations below so that we have some idea of how much and what has been tested, and report any issues in https://github.com/OpenCPN/OpenCPN/issues with the designation "PI Installer: <brief problem description>" or report the problem below if you find it easier.

Re: PI Installer

Once, the basic Opencpn installation is completed and you have tested PI Installer for installation of the test plugins and then tested uninstallation, and have made a report here in this thread.



We next need you to do some further testing of "edge cases".

We know that generally plugins install OK, it is really about what the user will experience with a current setup and an upgrade. It is whether the plugins work as expected, what happens when you upgrade/downgrade a plugin, what happens when you uninstall/reinstall a plugin or OCPN, how 'usable' is the interface, does the interface have issues with screen resolutions, 'interesting' artefacts, 'items' not showing, etc.
