    Hi, is there a way to utilize your kindle app on Openplotter? I would like to display signalk instrument panel on a kindle touch… in Openplotter the address is I’m not a developer

    Thanks a lot

    Hi, yes you can. We have released the Javascript source code of the Kindle App as open source, which you can get from here…

    If you create a sub-folder in the Signalk folder on your Openplotter system and then unzip the files in to this sub-folder, renaming the iKommunicate-API-Kindle.html file to index.html, then when you go to it should run the Kindle app. You might have to fiddle around with the URL the App tries to use to get the Signal K data, but it should be doable even by a non-developer (which also describes me).

    I am sure there are developers on the OpenPlotter project that could help.



    this is the answer of op forum:

    But I am afraid this app should be installed as a node-module to be executed in the node-server. We use node and I think ikomminikate uses another kind of server.

    what do you think?

    I don’t know nothing about node et signalk…..

    How can I use your kindle app?

    I don’t think this is true, you should be able to copy the Kindle App manually in to the same folder as the Instrument Panel App and it will be served up just like any webpage. It is not a Node App, but a simple HTML5/CSS/JS app.

    If you copy the Kindle files on to your PC’s desktop and then double click the HTML file, it will open and run on your PC’s browser without Node.

    Best regards




    Finally I tested the kindle app and openplotter on the sea…. It works all good but, is it possible to display, on the kindle app, the gps speed instead of log speed?

    best regard
