pyBCD - 0.42

A binary powers of 2 clock. Simple yet cool.

Why would you want to use a binary clock?

Because if you use Arabic numerals... then the terrorists have already won. :p

Download this binary clock today and support freedom loving peoples everywhere.


The "binary clock" is a great exercise in programming. When you're already familiar with programming theory, you need something slightly bigger than "hello world."

This is my first published python project. You can import this file to use the get_correct_digit function in your own work. I've licensed it as GPL 3 so I look forward to seeing interesting additions to it (if that ever happens.)


--Resizeable window.

--Dynamic sizing and centering.

--Rotate between primary colors with the SPACEBAR.

It's almost complete. The next version will have credits and help... and that will wrap it up--the ultimate binary clock. The only thing better than what I have here would be to make it a screensaver. To that end, I found a python library that will accomplish it. Just need to learn how to use it.
