Brabosphere is an OpenSource program for the 3D visualisation of molecular systems and their properties. Its name is derived from the quantum mechanical program package BRABO (developed at the Structural Chemistry Group of the University of Antwerp) for which it acts as a graphical frontend. It can also be used for the analysis and visualisation of the data resulting from this type of calculations. In that respect, results from some other quantum mechanical applications will also be accepted. For quick viewing of molecular structures, the program CrdView is being developed, acting as a replacement for Xmol and allowing command line conversion between a multitude of coordinate file formats.

Help me out
The foundations for Brabosphere have been laid out and now you, the user, comes into play. I have heaps of inspiration (check out the roadmap), but I don't know what features are most important and should be implemented first. I could also use some help with the inevitable bug hunt. For these reasons bug reports and feature requests can be submitted. Please use these! You would help me out tremendously with my aim to make this a package of outstanding quality.
