View today's iCal events on the desktop via a script
Authored by: rwinchester on Sep 25, '06 11:21:18AM
I'd really like to see a Growl version of the script... to open up my machine in the morning and see a quick preview of what's ahead for the day would be great. Anyone?

View today's iCal events on the desktop via a script
Authored by: robleach on Sep 25, '06 12:51:10PM

The only tool I've seen out there which does this sort of thing properly is iCal::Parser (a perl module). I tried running this script on my many calendars and it gave me back 3 events for today when in fact I have 19 events scheduled for today.

I wrote a perl script like this called current_events.pl which (using iCal::Parser) grabs ALL of the events from today - including recursive events - to a specified number of days ahead and outputs text which I have a cron job set up to store in a daily updated file that my ovolab phlink app uses to speak the day's events for people who call and enter my phone system and press 2 followed by a number (1-7) for today's, tomorrow's, etc. events.

I'd post my script, but I don't have time to grab it off my home computer at the moment.

Rob
