A couple of years ago I found OpalCalc
to be a useful part of my software repository, providing an easy way to do calculations of everyday things without having to think about how to tell the calculator what you actually want to calculate.However
, the full version of OpalCalc is not freeware. While I'd totally recommend to donate something to the guy behind OpalCalc, I'm not quite happy to pay for things I could develop myself. My natural lazyness loses ground when it comes to hard money.
So here's my first attempt.Calcupy! - your semantic desktop calculatorFeatures:
- Calculate things.
- Convert units.
- Convert currencies (currently updated once a day, internet access is required for obvious reasons).
- Fixed inconsistency: The window title is "Calcupy!" now.
- Added an "About" window.
- Updated libraries.
- Calcupy! now tries to handle decimal commas more reliably.
- 0.0.2: First "public" version (DC exclusive).
Known inconsistencies:Suggestions:This is version 0.0.3.
Add a history feature: Show the whole calculation history so you won't lose track of what you are actually doing.
- Add an option to set the maximum number of digits for the "mem" field.
Fix some minor UI glitches.
- Set up a website and blog. (In progress.)
- Use a better runtime than Electron. Electron is awful.
Don't even dare to think that this is (in my eyes) nearly complete yet. I'm positive that everything you'd want to suggest is already planned or would be rejected anyway. Version 0.9.9 will probably be the first one to not apply this rule to. 8)
