DESCRIPTION:

Calculate Sunrise and Sunset. Now uses native C wrappers. Lots of examples to play with for learning about Eot.

FEATURES/PROBLEMS:

  • Use GeoLatLng class to set coordinates or set them manually.

SYNOPSIS:

start irb

$ irb --simple-prompt

enter Code

require 'eot'
eot = Eot.new
eot.string_eot          # todays eot
eot.ajd                 # was initialized to noon today ei. jd
# Try the real AJD
eot.ajd = DateTime.now.to_time.utc.to_datetime.ajd.to_f

eot.string_eot          # nothing changes so...
eot.ma_ta_set           # recalculate ma and ta after initialization
eot.string_eot          # should be different than before

# check and set a new address                        
geo = GeoLatLng.new
geo.addr
geo.addr = "houston, tx"     # set new location
geo.set_coordinates          # set new coordinates
eot.latitude = geo.lat       # set the Eot class attributes
eot.longitude = geo.lng

# Be shure you have the date set right
eot.ajd = DateTime.new(2014,11,07).to_time.utc.to_datetime.jd.to_f

eot.set_t           # recalculate ma and ta after initialization

eot.sunrise_jd          # the dates sunrise as a jd
eot.sunset_jd           # the dates sunset as a jd
eot.sunrise_dt          # the dates sunrise as DateTime
eot.sunset_dt           # the dates sunset as a DateTime

eot.ajd += 1            # the days after times can be read
eot.set_t           # recalculate ma and ta after initialization 
eot.ajd = 2451545       # ajd set to 2001-01-01 12:00

Gem patch:

$ gem install eot

After realizing this name was available I decided to use it. It installs the needed requirements as for some reason gem install equationoftime doesn't always. Hoe hoe hoe!

REQUIREMENTS:

$ bundle install

INSTALL:

$ bundle exec rake install

Build with DEVKIT

cd to devkit dir and run devkitvars.bat

or make a batchfile to start your envirnment with 'run devkitvars'
cd to gem-equationoftime dir
Rake -T

DEVELOPERS:

After checking out the source, run:

$ bundle exec rake newb

This task will install any missing dependencies, run the tests/specs, and generate the RDoc.
