The Code Used for Google’s Santa Claus Tracking App has been Made Open-Source
Gabriel Roşu / 3 years ago
Though the spirit of Christmas has passed, Google brings it back with an open-source announcement of its Santa Tracker app code. For those unaware, the Santa Tracker is an online fictional progress of Santa’s journey throughout the world in real-time during the Christmas festivities.
The code is now available on GitHub for anyone who wants to implement it on whatever they desire. Developers can download the web version from here, while the Android version can be downloaded from here.
The general idea of tracking Father Christmas may seem a bit of pointless unless you are making an app for kids, but the code does contain some pretty nice libraries and samples that can be adapted and used in various other applications.
