This is a conversion program for units and some numeric conversions.

Initially the unit conversions supported is a short list of common ones, which I plan to grow over time.

Features of the program include:

  • swapping between from and to fields: units, values or both,
  • dark and light color themes,
  • preferences saved for color theme
  • last unit selections and input value saved on exit and restored on start
  • input field checked for proper unit format. Displays an inline error when invalid.
  • range checks on values. Displays an inline error message if a value is out of range for the unit, ex. negative values for Kelvin.

Supported conversions:

  • Area
  • Distance/Length
  • Mass
  • Numeral Systems
  • Speed
  • Temperature
  • Torque
  • Volume

See the forum post for details of units included.


  • 0.0.2 - initial release
  • 0.0.3 - add Mass, Torque. Add numlock(orange key). Remove keypress filter so all key hits are visible.

More units to be added:

  • Coordinates (Cartesian, Geographic, Cylindrical)
  • date->doy
  • kitchen units (separate category, easier to access)
  • pressure, density, angle, fuel consumption, energy, power, etc
  • ascii
  • numerals: Eastern Arabic (Arabic-Indic)
  • File and memory storage (KB MB GB TB to bytes)
  • IEEE-754 Floating-Point Conversion from Floating-Point to Hexadecimal and reverse
  • Decimal to fractions
  • suggestions??

Functionality to be added:

  • reset prefs
  • save last used units for each category
  • save conversions to a list
  • add reference pages
  • add multiconvert scene: show all conversion results simultaneously for units in a category
  • International number formatting (comma vs period)
  • fractional digits setting
  • suggestions??
