History

Space Launch Now started as a weekend project in 2016 for Caleb Jones as none of the current Android apps for Launch Library were still maintained. After several weeks of development and a few posts to Reddit and Facebook a small but strong community started to build of spaceflight enthusiast. We now have several active staff members and a small team of volunteer librarians and translators helping to bring the most accurate spaceflight data to phones, tablets and computers around the world.

Technology

All of Space Launch Now's code is publicly hosted and freely licensed on GitHub. The server hosting the website, discord, public API, and Twitter bots is a Django app running on the Digital Ocean platform. For Android, it is a fully native Java/Kotlin application that sources most of its data from the Space Launch Now server. On iOS for now it is built using the Flutter framework which is technically cross platform.
