< GSoC | 2016 | StatusReports KStars on Windows Project Name: KStars on Windows A Brief Description: Even though KStars is one of the best planetarium software, until now it had a major drawback: it lacked a fully working Windows version. The actual Windows installing process of KStars was slightly troublesome, especially for a user with no programming background. Therefore, developing a Windows version of KStars was crucial in the further development of KStars as it is one of the main astronomy software out there. KStars on Windows project aimed to develop a single KStars installer, which is able to solve any required dependency and successfully install KStars on an Windows machine. Status: Completed (yet there are some minor things that need to be fixed under Windows) Screenshots: KStars on Windows main view: KStars on Windows startup wizard: KStars on Windows configure window: KStars on Windows Altitude vs Time window: KStars on Windows calculator: IRC Nick: raphael29 IRC Channels: #kde-kstars, #kde-windows Blog: https://raphaelcojocaru.wordpress.com/ This is awesome about GSoC: Google Summer of Code has a lot of awesome things. Firstly, you have a huge opportunity to develop yourself and improve your overall skills. During these months, thanks to my mentor, I learned a lot of new things which will help me in the near future. Another important experience that GSoC brings is the chance to work on a real life project. It is a satisfying feeling to know that your work will matter and will change some people's life. This means a lot for me and I am very glad about it. This is what I learned during GSoC: C++ Qt CMake Git Build systems how to use emerge tool how to write and test a QA list how to write a documentation how to package and distribute an application Work report Documentation: https://docs.kde.org/stable5/en/kdeedu/kstars/index.html QA: https://techbase.kde.org/Projects/Edu/KStars/QA_List_2.6.0 Repositories: Git commits on KStars master branch: https://github.com/KDE/kstars/commits/master?author=RaphaelCojocaru Git commits on KStars on Windows project branch: https://github.com/KDE/kstars/commits/gsoc2016-windows?author=RaphaelCojocaru KDE QuickGit on master branch: https://quickgit.kde.org/?p=kstars.git&a=search&h=d8442c5a55f9771c209a1e1f05c078e7ae1c71a2&st=author&s=Raphael KDE QuickGit on KStars on Windows project branch: https://quickgit.kde.org/?p=kstars.git&a=search&h=18c041bf78d9ce248db492143a26876487e2f530&st=author&s=Raphael Blog posts: https://raphaelcojocaru.wordpress.com/2016/04/25/ready-for-some-gsoc-time/ https://raphaelcojocaru.wordpress.com/2016/05/02/kstars-windows-environment-is-ready/ https://raphaelcojocaru.wordpress.com/2016/05/09/welcome-kstars-to-windows/ https://raphaelcojocaru.wordpress.com/2016/05/28/kstars-on-windows-alpha-version/ https://raphaelcojocaru.wordpress.com/2016/06/28/kstars-on-windows-midterm-evaluation/ https://raphaelcojocaru.wordpress.com/2016/08/17/kstars-on-windows-beta-version/ Retrieved from "https://community.kde.org/index.php?title=GSoC/2016/StatusReports/RaphaelCojocaru&oldid=73702" This page was last edited on 22 August 2016, at 20:00.
