Calculate your Body Mass Index

Bomico is a tiny java application that computes an individual’s body mass index based on some measurements.

The application is free software released under GPL 3.

You can contribute to it if you want to. Checkout the code at . You must register to GitHub in order to become a contributor (it’s free for open source projects).

If you want just to install it: you can download it here :

Note that if you’re running Ubuntu 12.04, Bomico supports Ubuntu Global menu and thus HUD. Be sure before installation, you have a Java JRE installed (Oracle JRE or OpenJDK 6 or 7).

After installation you can check that installation was completed by typing the following command in your Terminal:

bomico --version

If you download and want to run the jar file, (supposing you have set your java home classpath already), copy the jar file (bomico_1.0.2.jar) to your desktop and do as follows, in a terminal:

java -jar ~/Desktop/bomico_1.0.2.jar

    Do you have a spam problem on this blog; I also am a blogger, and I was wondering your situation; many of us
    have created some nice practices and we are looking to swap techniques
    with others, why not shoot me an e-mail if interested.
