Skylendar

Skylendar

Skylendar is a modern design astrology software, designed for the KDE 3.x desktop environment.

It includes a modern interface, a powerful data/restrictions sets management, drag'n'drop, multi-windows, animation and a SQL database searching/loading/saving interface. Skylendar is built upon the Swiss Ephemeris library (sweph), which uses precomputed ephemeris files.

It is the successor of KAstrolog 5.4, a KDE port of the famous W.D. Pullen's Astrolog.

The Skylendar main window is basically divided into two vertical parts: an icon tree for the data/restrictions sets, subchart management, and a workspace where all the graphical charts are displayed.

The code is written in C++, is fairly portable and has a modern design and interface.
