OrthCal is an Eastern Orthodox Calendar, showing the Feasts of the day both in the Julian (Old) calendar and the Revised Julian (New) calendar. It also comes with other tools, such as Feast finder and Pascha calculator.

The GNU/Linux OS lacked an application like this, which can prove to be very useful for Eastern Orthodox Linux users. Some countries where large numbers of Eastern Orthodox Christians exist include Albania, Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Estonia, Georgia, Greece, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Latvia, Lebanon, Moldova, Montenegro, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Ukraine and others. Many of these countries also have active Ubuntu Loco teams.

You are free to contribute to OrthCal's translations in your own language, via its Transifex page (

OrthCal's development began with the incentive of the Ubuntu App Showdown contest of July 2012.
