Spacestills, a NASA TV still frame viewer
PaoloAmoroso (190)

I wrote Spacestills, a Python program for viewing and downloading NASA TV still frames. NASA TV is the official TV network of the US space agency.

I'm a hobby programmer and this is a Python learning project.

I wanted to write code more advanced than basic beginner exercises, something with features such as a GUI based on PySimpleGUI and access to the web. Another goal was taking advantage of Replit's tools like GitHub support and running graphical apps using VNC. The screenshot shows Spacestills in a noVNC session on my Android tablet.

More details are in a blog post that discusses the design of Spacestills.
