NASA APOD wallpaper download

Project Description

apod-wallpaper

Utilizes NASA APOD API to generate wallpapers with explanations. - Will download images (single, random or all in date range) - Only supports image media types (no video). - Uses tkinter to attempt to size wallpaper if not specified. - By default, adds explanation of daily images in watermarked footer.

Install

pip install apod-wallpaper

For issues installing PIL dependency: - Install libjpeg-dev & freetype-dev with your package manager (apt, yum, brew, etc)

pip install PIL --allow-external PIL --allow-unverified PIL

Configuration

Set NASA_API_KEY environment variable to your key.

Download random

Defaults to start_date=date(1995, 6, 20) (the first day NASA began posting daily pics), and end_date=date.today()

Download bulk

Select range of APOD (good for catching up on recent misses)
