A simple application around the Pale Blue Dot project, to make it easier to adopt a star. Issue tracker at Lighthouse: http://sjors.lighthouseapp.com/projects/29064-pale-blue-dot/ More info about the Pale Blue Dot project: http://whitedwarf.org/palebluedot/ This project is not in any way associated with Pale Blue Dot; it's just me. But who knows that might change. At the moment, it doesn't do anything useful except show a list of stars. Here's a list of possible improvements (for I which I don't have time, so patches are welcome): * Facebook / Etc integration, e.g. ** show your friend's stars on map ** find a bright star near your friends * search for cool astronomic coincidences, e.g. ** eclipsed by Jupiter on your birthday * etc, etc Installation: Install ruby on rails on your machine. Install MySQL on your machine. Also install development files, e.g. libmysqlclient15-dev Download the source. Run: sudo rake gems:install Create a MySQL database: create database kepler; grant all privileges on kepler.* to kepler@localhost identified by 'kepler'; Create the stars table: rake db:mgirate Download the stars: wget http://whitedwarf.org/palebluedot/KIC.txt Import the stars: mysql kepler -u kepler -p < import-stars.sql Get a Google Maps API key. Copy config/app_config.yml.example to app_config.yml and add your key to this file. Run server: script/server Point your browser to: http://localhost:3000/
