Ohel Shem ❤️ OSS

This project is part of 'Ohel Shem OSS', our attempt at providing open standard for modern school.


This app is for students, allowing them to be updated with the most important data:

  • Timetable and changes
  • Tests and holidays

Technology behind

This application is based on Api-JVM, the official Ohel-Shem API for JVM platform (Java, Kotlin, Scala, Groovy...)

Here are some of most cutting edge technologies available in 2016 used in the app:


Statically typed programming language for the JVM, Android and the browser. Kotlin to Java is like C++ to C.
Kotlin libraries used in this project:

  • Anko - A DSL for layout and extension methods for Android development, Written by JetBrains.
  • Kodein - Dependency Injection library, based on Kotlin's delegation support.
  • Fuel - The easiest HTTP networking library in Kotlin for Android.
  • KotPref - Android SharedPreference delegation for Kotlin.

Vector images

Most of the app's images are vector graphics.

Vector graphics is the use of geometrical primitives such as points, lines, curves, and shapes or polygons—all of which are based on mathematical expressions—to represent images in computer graphics

Vector graphics allow the app to look perfect on any screen resolution, including QHD and 4K. (Tested on G4 with QHD screen).

Some of the icons were taken from those icon sets. Credit for them:
