Newbie Help

I am slowly learning the ropes, this is all new to me, but am eager to learn. My long term aspirations are to build a sophisticated custom dashboard. I currently have NMEA 0183 data coming in from a from SignalK with JSON sentences being sent to a debug window.  I was wondering if anyone would share their code which includes a dashboard which separates the data in the sentences and sends each one to a chart or numeric indicator. One example, would be a great help in being able to get me up to speed.

Thanks! Huh

How/where/on what device do you plan to use the dashboard?

Dashboard is such a generic word that it is hard to tell what exactly you are looking for...

I am starting slow with a RP3+ a GPS USB. Next step will add wind, speed, GPS, AIS via NMEA 0183 output from my Vesper XB- 8000 which is connected to my Raymarine instruments and chart plotter. Then, just continue to add functionality like battery and tank monitors, etc. Smile
I've been working on something like that for M5Stack. It takes NMEA 0183 via MQTT wirelessly and displays it on the M5Stack display. Mine is intended for the nav station, so size and sunlight readability aren't as important. This is a development of one that I put together previously for a 4 x 20 line LCD display, which I am using now. RIght now it displays Location, speed, course and wind data. If I have enough memory, I intend to add Engine and Electrical data, as well as depth. Since the M5Stack accommodates an SD card, it should be possible to store historical data as well, but again, it's all about program memory right now.

Here's the Github:

Still early days, but It works on the bench. It might be possible to port this to something with a larger display.
