Default Calendar: Display Birthdays, Anniversaries
Is it possible to integrate Google Birthday, Anniversary calendar(Calendar ID: firstname.lastname@example.org) in MM config without using public ical url? This calendar does not have a secret ical url.
@Rags no, sorry. the calendar depends on the ics file
you could downloaded it manually and use the file . I assume it doesn’t change much
@sdetweil Ok but newer entries to contacts will not show up.
Could you guide me on how.? to configure the config.js entry pointing to the downloaded file. ALso,
@Rags put it in the calendar module folder
the the url
??? is whatever u named it
the 8080 is whatever u have configured for port: in mm config.js
@Rags newer entries… it will have to be downloaded again.
somebody/something has to use the public url.
the owner of the calendar could give u the private url. I have one like this. daughter owns it
I don’t see the ‘secret’ of the secret url if I can send it to you and you can use it without logging on as me… same as public
I used the export option on google calendar to download the file.
The downloaded file looks like this;
The config file looks like this;
I get a display of “an error in the calendar module, check log for more details”
the Module is unable to read this format. What needs to be done?
@Rags I do not know what the export option format looks like. just use the public url in this
curl -sL url > somefile.ics
thn examine the somefile.ics
it is just a text file
that is the format required
@Rags that url string might need to treat special chars differently (escape them, or use the hex equivalent). I would rename it using simple text
Im uskng MMM-GooglebirthdayProvider. I alreday installed it and have the key for it. work fine.
Problem- Google disavled the old authentification.
Just in case…
@Rags sorry to ask a maybe stupid question: but how do I export the birthday calendar from my Google calendars?
The key here is, that the birthday calendar it not a “normal” calendar with an ics file, so when looking into the calendar options, it doesn’t offer an export option (while it does for all my normal calendars).
