adempus on FreenodeSo, I'm trying to make an app that can interface with a database to collect information about stars...and parse that information somehow to display with a picture
adempus on FreenodeSo...if in my application I type "alpha centurai" whatever api can return a JSON document about that star that can be parsed.
adempus on Freenodedoes such a thing exist?
adempus on FreenodeJfault: would SIMBAD provide such services?
Jfault on Freenodeadempus: hmm, I'm more of a guy who downloads huge star catalogs and parses them but...
