    This is based on the default calendar module, and is functionally exactly the same. The difference is in presentation layout:

  • @j.e.f.f Hi j.e.f.f.,
    it seems, as you made all the cool modules - so I keep coming back to you with questions. Hope that is OK.
    I plan to use your module to show if today is a national holiday.

    I have three questions for you:

    • If today is no holiday, you module shows “keine Termine” (=no entries). Is it possible to completely hide it, if no entry is present? (I limited the module to show only today’s entry from a public national holiday calendar).

    • You designed a nice way to integrate the number of the day into the calendar icon. I found this to be very useful for upcoming events - but would love to use custom symbols like in the original calendar for entries that are today (e.g. cake for birthdays) to visually separate things easily. The “symbol” variable does not seem to change it. Is it disabled? Or could it be used to overwrite your symbol?

    *Every entry is shown with a symbol, the description and a text, when it will be. In this example “Dienstag” (=tuesday). Is it possible to hide this last element and show only the symbol and the description? As my holiday-checker only shows today’s entries, this could be omitted and look cleaner.

    Thanks for your help!



  • @j-e-f-f Nice job!
    I have a few question.

    1. How can I set the color of icons? My config is here. I don’t know why it doesn’t work.
    {...
        colored: true,  // required, right?
        config: {
            calendars: [
                {
                     color: '#99FF99', // I don't know why this color doesn't work
                     url: "something.ics"
                }
    },
    
    1. How can you attach extra icon? In your screenshot, “Kinetic Social Pay” event has some image icon. I want to know how to do.


  • @Sean you didn’t nest the config properly

    {...
        config: {
            colored: true,  // required, right?
            calendars: [
                {
                     color: '#99FF99', // I don't know why this color doesn't work
                     url: "something.ics"
                }
    },

    @rudibarani I just use a holiday calendar to add national holidays into the list. Like the ones you can find here:
    https://www.calendarlabs.com/ical-calendar-holidays.php

    If you download the ics file, you can insert the name into the url like this:
    http://www.calendarlabs.com/templates/ical/Canada-Holidays.ics

    renders like this:

    As for bringing back the alternative icon, it would break the design. The number in the calendar is the only place where the day of the month is indicated. If there were were a custom icon, I would have to put the full date into the description line, which I was trying to keep as minimal as possible. My thought is that my family would look at this for 30 seconds max on the way out the door. So I’m trying to keep the mental processing down.

    Maybe the original calendar beter suits your needs?

    @Sean That extra icon beside “Kinetic Social Pay” is an emoji in the calendar entry itself. It has nothing to do with this module. In any case, you’re seeing a screenshot from my laptop. It doesn’t render on the mirror running Raspberry Pi. I just see a box.

    Does anyone know how to incorporate emojis on the Pi?
