10.4: Sync iCal 2.0 Calendars via SSH
Authored by: seancorfield on Jun 21, '05 11:06:43PM

If you have a Mac, you have a WebDAV ready server.

My approach to the iCal problem was to enable WebDAV on Apache on my PowerBook and have iCal publish all changes automatically to localhost. Then my old "pushcal.sh" ftp script just picked up the .ics files from the new location instead...

"have iCal publish all changes automatically"

what do you mean by this, and how is it done? i looked in all the iCal prefs/menus and found nothing to auto export?

(Author of the script, didn't register before submitting the hint)

Essentially you are using webdav and a script (in bash, ruby, perl, whatever) to do the job that this python script does all on it's own.
It doesn't make much sense to use webdav and a script unless you have webdav turn on for other things as well. Even then, using webdav does not produce more accurate results on the server because the ftp upload script is still a cron job.

Why have a webdav service that effectively isn't doing anything but renaming the files for you? It seems pointless.

Anyways, I hope a few people enjoy the script. I know I do. Although the bash script to upload was more simple, the python script does the job.

Enjoy
