Astrognome was originally created by Jean-André Santoni, and was hosted on Google Code. The original project is now rewrote from scratch, using the SWE-GLib library (which is actually a wrapper around Swiss Ephemeris library). Several ideas come from the original project, and from others like Placidus and Aquarius2Go.


The project is currently hosted on GitHub. Just fork the repo, make your changes and issue a pull request. Don't like GitHub? That's fine with me; in this case, clone the repo, and send your changes, and send me your modifications at as a git-bundle or a patch (in this latter case, you should also mention which commit is your base).

The entire project is written in C, utilizing GTK+ (3.8 currently, but the final version may come only with 3.10) and SWE-GLib (which is used for the calculations part).

Astrognome follows a well-defined coding style. If you contribute, please follow that by looking at existing sources, or use Uncrustify with the config file under docs/. The only thing it messes up currently is the alignment of object type #definitions.


The code is a bit messy yet, and displays calculated data only in a textual form. Graphics will be added later.
