It’s a new free android chinese calendar conversion tool on android app store. Technically, I do not dwell too much about oriental culture on this blog, but since it was built entirely using meteorjs as a fun side project of mine, I thought I should share it here.

So basically this application is built solely using meteorjs (if you have not heard of it, you can find out more here: https://www.meteor.com/ ). It is a fullstack javascript framework that allows you to build web apps as well as mobile apps. For those of you who are familiar with Angular, Reactjs, DerbyJs and more… Meteor is just like the JS version of ruby on rails; an all-in-one JS stack. There is a plugin library called atmosphere, which supplies your meteorjs app with all the bells and whistles on the fly (you can read more here: https://atmospherejs.com/ ). I have previously build some minor but I think general useful plugin on atmosphere ( html5shiv and snapsvg.io which you can find here: https://atmospherejs.com/?q=mirage).

About the app

The Chinese and Japanese have a very old system of predicting the life of a person. It is called Ba Zhi (8 characters). This represents 4 pillars (2 chars each… yes I know what you are thinking.. its binary…the yin and yang of each pilliar.). Each pillar represents approximately 20 years of your life; from year pillar (0-20), month pillar (20-40), day pillar (40-60), time pillar (60-80). Its approximate.. so if you live till a hundred, its about 25 each; good for you! 🙂

Each animal (signified by 12 zodiac animals) has its own weaknesses and strengths. So long story short, you can see how you life progresses; e.g. love, career, finance.. . With this four pillars, you can find complimenting zodiac signs which empower your pillar at certain periods of your life (apparently). You can find that each pillar also has colours, signifying one of the five elements (wood, fire, earth, metal, water).

I wont dwell to much about this, as you can probably find more detailed information via google. Well this app does the conversion. Just enter your gregorian date and it will present you with the oriental (lunisolar date).

Hope this helps. Its a fun side project to do the calculations for 150 years. So feel free to try and give some comments! cheers.
