The Christmas season just past I would like to offer a challenge to update the "Advent Wreath" for desktop program.
I do not have experience programming and it has been difficult trying to find someone willing and skilled enough to take up this challenge.
There is an advent wreath that is no longer being actively developed. It's the only advent wreath for desktop I've found. While it still runs on windows 7, it could use an update.
"Advent" can be downloaded here:http://desktop-fun.net
The candles begin lighting up on the first Sunday in advent automatically, then each Sunday another candle is automatically lit. On December 27 all candles become unlit.
There are no user configurable options for color of candles (violet, pink, white) and no option to add a fifth (center) candle and no setting to continue the lighted candles beyond December 27. But the program is well done and very useful. It remains a popular download and could use further development.
Would someone consider taking up the challenge of developing an "Advent Wreath" with candle color options (candles 1,2,3 as violet and candle 4 as pink and adding a fifth (center) candle as white? The size of the candles and greenery is perfect, I think. It would make a fine addition to Donationcoder. Perhaps it could be 2012 NANY challenge?
I would be willing to make a contribution to get the project going.
