Re: automatic church calendar
- Gary -
I have not come across any "tools" as such that can automate such calendars
readily. We had to implement the algorithms in a Java application that
outputs the calendar data in XML format, which is then transformed into a
calendar style html document using XSLT. The feast and lection data are
entered in an Access database.
I do not have much of an understanding of the Armenian calendar; if your
calendars are generated for a Gregorian year (although the date of Easter
and other feasts may be calculated on the Julian calendar), you could use
what we developed as a baseline. I can send you the presentation which you
can help you assess whether you can leverage any of our work.

Subject: automatic church calendar
The Armenians would also be interested in automating the Armenian
Orthodox Church Calendar. Are there tools to do this?
