Nevertheless! Party Metaphorically

    This is a marine instrumentation package to display signalK data. Display can be split up in any arrangement to show any kind data available on the server.

    Design Goal

    The idea is to replicate the functionality of your average MFD such as the B&G Triton, Raymarine i70, or Garmin GMI20.

    • Display should be fullscreen and not require any scrolling
    • Anything displayed should be as big as possible in the given space
    • Touchscreen user experience should be excellent
    • Layout and configuration should be both easy to operate and flexible
    • Compatibility with Chromium browser and other device form factor important (**HELP WANTED)

    Kip is built on Angular using various open-source assets. All free!


    Linux, Macs, Pi or Windows dev platform supported

    1. Install the latest Node version
    2. Download you favorite coding IDE (we use the free Visual Code)
    3. Create your own GitHub Kip fork and configure your IDE source control to point to this Fork (With Visual Code, GitHub support is built-in)


    1. Create a GitHub Branch of your own Kip Fork
    2. Checkout this new Branch to get the source code locally.
    3. In a command shell (or in the Visual Code Terminal window), go to the root of you local project folder.
    4. Install project dependencies using NPM package and dependency manager: run npm install. NPM will read local Kip project dependencies (see Steps 2), download and install everything automatically for you.
    5. Build the app locally using Angular-CLI: from that same project root folder, run ng build. CLI tool will read local Kip project configuration (see Tools - steps 4) and build everything.


    1. Fire up your local dev instance with CLI using ng serve.
    2. Point your favorite browser to http://localhost:4200/ and voila!

    As you work on source code and save files, the app will automatically reload in the browser with your latest changes.


    1. From your Fork's working Branch, make a GitHub pull request to have your code reviewed, merged and part of the next release.


    1. Build your own version:
    2. Use the -prod flag for a production build.
    3. To generate a npm package, run npm run-script build-npm.
    4. Warning: Git Bash seems to mess up Base Href, fix it in public/index.html if needed
    5. Deploy and have fun!
