(Where to start / what's next) sticky post?
#1
Hello there,

I just got OpenPlotter installed and I don't know what to do next. The documentation seems pretty new and pretty much all pages after the configurations steps are empty.

On the home page, there is an exciting list of features but I can't find anywhere explaining how to use these. For example, I want to set temperature sensors for the engine, water detectors for the bilges, pressure sensor, etc that could display in some windows, or inside OpenCPN in a corner but I have no idea where to start.

Are there any "start here", "tutorials", "what's next" sections or pinned posts somewhere that I failed to see? If not, does anyone have good documentation links, websites or tutorials?

I'm sorry if this was asked before and I didn't see it.

Thanks!

Marco

You are right, sorry, we do what we can but our human resources and time are limited.
Next week we want to start with the docs seriously.

Strange, didn't get any notification for answer.

Anyways, thanks! In the meantime however, are there any documentation resources anywhere at all that you would know of?

Previous manual covers a lot though some things will be different in v1.0.0

hi, I use nodered to see data from engine temperature sensors, crankcase, cabin, atmospheric pressure, humidity, etc.
I wrote a basic manual of how to graph the data of the sensors, you can find it in Telegram in openplotter, (sensores node red) is in Spanish, but it can help you.
You can go playing to make your own dashboard.

Saludos
