Default Calendar Stopped Showing Recurring Events



  • I’m using MM 2.13.0 and I’m seeing some weird behavior with the default calendar. I set up a Google calendar this past weekend, configured it in MM using the secret address and it was looking good. Then when I checked it today to tweak the date formatting there were no events showing. I’ve tried everything I can think of and it’s just not loading. I created a new calendar with one test event and loaded it using the secret address, looks good. I then exported this original calendar and imported the events into this new calendar, and no events show up. Not even the test event that was previously working.

    Are there any known issues with the # of events the default calendar can handle? The only thing that’s a bit unique about this calendar is there are a lot (34) of recurring events each day.

    Thanks in advance for any troubleshooting suggestions…



  • There have been a lot of work done by @sdetweil on the calendar module. Try the develop branch which handles recurring events much better.



  • @BigSky as suggested. Please get the develop branch.

    See here for instructions
    https://forum.magicmirror.builders/topic/13770/2-13-calendar-fix-for-office-365-users/2

    Also, be careful. broadcastPastEvents conflicts w number of entries

    Past events are not shown, but count against number of entries



  • Thanks for the suggestions, @sdetweil and @Alvinger but switching to the develop branch didn’t resolve the issue just yet. I’m going to create a new calendar and add recurring events one at a time to see if there’s a specific threshold that breaks the module. I’ll post my findings…



  • @BigSky can u show one failing vevent from the ics file?
    ics is just text



  • @sdetweil also set “DEBUG” in the log levels in config.js and the npm start >somefile to capture the log. Or,

    pm2 flush
    pm2 restart 0
    pm2 logs --lines=200



  • Thanks for the tip on the log files. I’m actually seeing it sporadically working now. Other times it will say “No more events.” (or similar, I don’t recall exactly), and at other times it will appear to hang with the “Loading…” message. When I look at the log file the thing that jumps out at me is all the data it’s pulling for each recurring event. This calendar has something like 37 short events happening each weekday, and for each event I see the following in the log file (with the calendar URL anonymized). It appears to be pulling a full year of future events which may just be too much?

  • @BigSky You can limit the number of days in the future by setting the parameter maximumNumberOfDays to something like 30 which will fetch events occuring within the next month.



  • @Alvinger Ugh. Of course. I knew that. Limiting it to 3 days prevents it from hanging but it’s still saying “No upcoming events” when there should be.

    Below is the beginning and the end of the log file - it looks like some of these events should be displaying.

  • @BigSky I know, recurring events is not where the calendar module really shines…

    There is work ongoing to address as many issues as possible. Could you provide an ICS-file that can be used for testing the above?
