    Just recently I found a pretty cool app called JdiStars. Basically a star map based on your current location and time of day. It has a night mode(red light) and zoom, a few star names etc.

    There is a program I have on my computer called Stellarium and was wondering what the possiblities of something like that being made into an app?

    EDIT: was talking to somebody on the IRC (freenode #stellarium) and they said if webOS supported QT and opengl then supposedly it should compile fine

    It has been recently updated on the wiki page on how to compile svn from the bzr source

    These are things I have no clue about, but I'm about to do some reading and see if I can't figure something out

    just noticed here that this is available for iPhone. So this must be 'easily' ported over to webOS with the new PDK?? I say easily with quotes because I'm not sure how easy it really is, but obviously there is a mobile application out there.


    Switch to bazaar Version Control System
    The source code of Stellarium is now managed by Bazaar instead of Subversion. This change should ease new developers to create and maintain specific changes in parallel to the main code trunk thanks to the powerful distributed nature of bzr.
    See for accessing the new repository.

    Stellarium 0.10.5 available for Ubuntu 10.04
    Stellarium 0.10.5 binary packages are now available for Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx through a Launchpad PPA (Personal Package Archive).

    Stellarium's Ubuntu Releases PPA can be found at Launchpad:

    To get the updated Stellarium packages, you can either:

    a) use the Software Sources utility to add the "ppa:stellarium/stellarium-releases" line to the list of software sources, and then use the Synaptic package manager or the Ubuntu Software Center to update Stellarium's packages.

    b) open a terminal and run some commands:

    To add the PPA to the list of repositories:

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:stellarium/stellarium-releases

    and then, to look for package updates:

    sudo apt-get update

    As the Launchpad PPAs are not as extensively mirrored as Ubuntu's main repositories, downloading the packages may be slow. If the download halts, cancel and restart the installation. In most cases, the download's progress will be saved and it will continue from the point it stopped.

    webOS does support both qt (framework in preware) and openGL.

    To have something like this would be awesome, but SO much better on a device with an accelerometer, so it knows where you're pointing...

    sorry for bringing this back to the front, but I found some more useful information( I hope) that will HOPEFULLY catch a developers eye and maybe make this a reality

    hmm well it is possible certain things will have to be scaled down of course though. You probably wouldn't have such a nice day/night shader effect. And the textures would have to be lowered to a smaller size so they use less memory, and although the code is all there it would take a developer sometime to port I think.

    My understanding is that Qt was considered but rejected. Too bad. Stellarium on the iPad would be killer. Maybe Astromist will get ported from PalmOs. That is another good one.
