Changing the icon for only one calendar

  • Hello,
    I am using the default calendar module which comes with the Magic Mirror.
    Thus far I am pretty happy with how it works.

    I have manged to get several ics files sync’d in and colour coded.

    However, I would like to change the icon for on of the calendars to one not available on

    Ideally, it would be a file I could store locally on the RaspberryPi
    This is what the config.js file looks like currently for the calendar:

    			module: "calendar",
    			header: "Gavin's Calendars",
    			position: "top_left",
    			config: {
    				colored: true,
    				coloredSymbolOnly: true,
    				calendars: [
    						symbol: "calendar-check",
    						dateFormat: "Do MMM",
    						color: "#E51B00",
    						url: "calendarlink01.ics"},
    						symbol: "calendar-alt",
    						dateFormat: "Do MMM",
    						color: "#1073BC",
    						url: "calendarlink02.ics"},
    						symbol: "calendar-plus",
    						dateFormat: "Do MMM",
    						color: "#27A86C",
    						url: "calendarlink03.ics"}

    If I understand correctly, this will require some kind of custom CSS, would appreciate any guidance provided.

  • @Vengeance u can specify the symbolClass in the calendar entry too

    then in the css

    .calendar .foobar {
    ????? whatever u need 

  • Thanks @sdetweil
    I actually managed to just store the icons in the root dir for the module and change the .js for the module to look for the new file name.

    Now the issue I have is that .mov doesnt seem to work for icons. ( I tested with other file types to confirm the “change” worked, do now I know its just a file type issue)

  • Hi,

    I’m new on the forum and new on MM dev.
    I have a little question : could we have different colors in the calendar (I use default module, with a google calendar) like in the web version ?

    Because I made a custom CSS

     body {
    .fa.fa-calendar-check {
      color: #2B60DE; /* Dodger Blue */
    div.CALEXT .tableStyle .eventTime {

    And all my pictures are blue but I would like to have this picture at the same color like my web version like this example example.PNG
    Is it possible ?

    Thank you and congrats for your work

  • @gubastide sure… did u read the config for the calendar in the link from the readme?

  • @sdetweil Yes but I don’t understand how to make this …
    And English is difficult to me (I’m French) …
    Is there any solution for my problem ?
    Thank you
