Siteswapper is a program for generating and viewing juggling patterns that can be described with the siteswap notation. By specifying the number of balls, the maximum height of a throw, and the maximum length of the siteswap number sequence, the program can calculate all matching siteswaps. The generated siteswaps can also be animated.
Only simple siteswaps patterns are calculated, that is, patterns that do not have any repeatable subsequences. For more information about siteswaps in general, please consult the program help file or visit www.juggling.org.
The program is available for the Pocket PC and Windows CE platforms and as a WAP service.
A version for the Pocket PC series is now available. This version (v2.0) includes some new features;
A WAP (Wireless Application Protocol) version of Siteswapper is now available. Goto the WAP Service section for more information on how to use the service.
A version (v1.1) for the Handheld PC series is now available.
I am also finished with the new release (v1.1) of the PPC version. The PPC and the HPC versions are identical what comes to program features, besides that the HPC software has support for colors.
In the new version, I have implemeted some of the features that previously were listed under Future Development;
The new software for the two platforms have the same version number, and are available for download.
I am sorry to say that I have not implemented the Win95/98/NT version yet, as I intended. For the moment it has low priority. If you are interested in such version, please let me know.
The Siteswapper program is freeware. Please read the License Agreement before downloading the program.

Future versions of the program may have some of the following features;
If you have any other suggestions of improvement, please let me know.
The Siteswapper WAP Service lets you generate and validate siteswap patterns from a WAP terminal, ie. a WAP enabled cell phone such as Nokia 7110 or a handheld computer with a WAP browser. For more information about WAP technology, please visit WAP Forum.
The WAP service functionality is of course limited to siteswap generation since there is no support for animation. Due to memory limitations only a subset of the resultset will be displayed when generating large resultsets.
The URL for the WAP service is http://multivac.fatburen.org/juggling/siteswapper/wap.
My name is Magnus Hansson and I live in the city of Stockholm, Sweden. I started to juggle in December 1997. In the beginning I wanted to learn the three ball cascade. After a month I went up to four balls, and after another month I started to struggle with five. By that time I could not imagine that juggling would become one of my biggest interests, spending several hours a week on it.
Today, what comes to numbers juggling, I have a rather solid five ball cascade and a few pretty steady four club patterns. I have now decided to dedicate the rest of my life to learn the five club cascade. :)
Below I have listed a selection of the number of sites where this program can be downloaded. On these sites you can also find many other software products and other Pocket PC and Windows CE related information.
