Suncaster

Spring 2013

  • Django
  • Python

Getting fed up of cold days and dark nights some winters ago, I built a Django app that uses geolocation and the PyEphem astronomical computation library to work out how long the visitor must wait before they’ll be able to leave work in time to see the sunset. It was an amazing introduction to the data that PyEphem can provide and I hope a useful antidote to winter blues everywhere.
