World Magnetic Model Plugin for OpenCPN

Implements http://www.ngdc.noaa.gov/geomag/WMM/DoDWMM.shtml as a plugin for OpenCPN.

Compiling

You have to be able to compile OpenCPN itself - Get the info at http://opencpn.org/ocpn/developers_manual

  • This plugin now builds out of the OpenCPN source tree
git clone git://github.com/nohal/wmm_pi.git

Build:

mkdir wmm_pi/build
cd wmm_pi/build
cmake .. # To produce a binary compatible with Windows XP, you must set the respective toolset - use 'cmake -T v120_xp ..'
cmake --build .

Build on Mac OS X:

Tools: Can be installed either manually or from Homebrew (http://brew.sh)

#brew install git #If I remember well, it is already available on the system
brew install cmake
brew install gettext
ln -s /usr/local/Cellar/gettext/0.19.2/bin/msgmerge /usr/local/bin/msgmerge
ln -s /usr/local/Cellar/gettext/0.19.2/bin/msgfmt /usr/local/bin/msgfmt

To target older OS X versions than the one you are running, you need the respective SDKs installed. The easiest way to achieve that is using https://github.com/devernay/xcodelegacy

Building wxWidgets

(do not use wxmac from Homebrew, it is not compatible with OpenCPN) Get wxWidgets 3.0.x source from http://wxwidgets.org Configure, build and install

cd wxWidgets-3.0.2
./configure --enable-unicode --with-osx-cocoa --with-macosx-sdk=/Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/Platforms/MacOSX.platform/Developer/SDKs/MacOSX10.7.sdk/ --with-macosx-version-min=10.7 --enable-aui --disable-debug --enable-opengl
make
sudo make install

Building the plugin

Before running cmake, you must set the deployment target to OS X 10.7 to be compatible with the libraries used by core OpenCPN

export MACOSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET=10.7

Packaging on OS X

Get and install the Packages application from http://s.sudre.free.fr/Software/Packages/about.html

make create-pkg
