Signal K data stream generator plugin.

SKsim is a Signal K server plug-in which injects data into the Signal K data stream to mimic vessel movement, engine status, water depth, etc.

Additionally SKsim can load and follow a GPX Track. SKsim will walk through each point in the Track at the interval set in the configuration screen.

Note: If a track has multiple segments, SKsim will concatenate all the segments into one contiguous Track

It has a UI which is available in the Signal K server Web Apps screen so it can be operated directly from the Signal K server.

SKSim also acts as a provider to enable the SignalKSimulator Chrome App to send generated values via a Signal K server.
