Python Script to get NASA's APOD

I have always been worried about my desktop’s wallpaper. I find it a bit tedious to search the web for an image, download it and set it as my desktop’s wallpaper. So I thought to write a python script that would do the job for me.

Being a bit enthusiast about space and astronomy, I thought to get wallpapers from NASA’s official site, and therefore I wrote the script. The script actually gets the wallpaper from NASA's APOD(Astronomy Picture Of the Day) and sets it as your desktop wallpaper. So here is my github link to the script.

NASA APOD script. Currently it works on Linux OS, I will try to make it platform independent.

Till then enjoy with amazing and cool space pics from NASA 😃
