There are other char plotters for Openplotter
#1
I've found two other ChartPlotter programs (apart from OpenCPN) which can run on Openplotter
(or raspbian Buster pi).


The first one is called AvNav

Installation instructions here:

https://bareboat-necessities.github.io/m...at/#_avnav

The second one is QtVlm

Installation instructions here:

https://bareboat-necessities.github.io/m...at/#_qtvlm

Both of them support various char formats, mbtiles, etc.

It would be nice to have an option to install them too in next version on OpenPlotter

Thanks,

We have already an openplotter app for AvNav in the oven: https://github.com/e-sailing/openplotter-avnav

QtVlm is not longer open-source so being coherent with the openplotter policy we can not add this software.

Hello Sailoog.

I just installed this avpackage, it`s webserver defaults to port 8080, and this is allready used by your
installer for FlightAware from the new SDR-Plugin. We do have an small conflict here:

I managed to edit the /home/pi/avnav/data/avnav_server.xml to use port 8082.
Now the avnav service will start without crashing. 

This little Problem consists: you call port 8080 in openplotterAvnav.py. Please consider to change one of the ports.

Great Work.
Holger

(PS: i will better put this issure in openplotter-avnav, after rereading this licensing thing.)
