Dual Calendar feed

  • I just got finished loading and configuring my Mirror interface. The only issue that I am having at the moment is while trying to include mine and my wife’s google calendar feed. It works perfect as long as I only have the one .ics feed in the config file. When I add both, my config file crashes. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

  • Scratch that request! I figured it out!

    @Sharpe How did you do it?

    Just copied the config, and added a second?

  • @Mitchfarino Yes. I just copied the Calendar Module and reinserted it again. Then just change the URL for the ics to the second calendar link. Send me a message if I didn’t explain well enough.

    You should be able to have both feeds within the same config section:

        module: 'calendar',
        header: 'Current & Upcoming Events',
        position: 'top_left',
        config: {
            calendars: [
                    /* US Holidays */
                    symbol: 'calendar-check-o ',
                    url: 'webcal://www.calendarlabs.com/templates/ical/US-Holidays.ics'
                    /* Google Private Calendar */
                    symbol: 'calendar',
                    url: 'https://calendar.google.com/calendar/ical/[USER]%40gmail.com/[YOUR-PRIVATE-KEY/basic.ics'
                    /* Facebook Friends Birthdays Calendar */
                    symbol: 'birthday-cake',
                    url: 'webcal://www.facebook.com/ical/b.php?uid=[USER-ID]&key=[YOUR-PRIVATE-ID]'

  • @KirAsh4 thanks for sharing all your knowledge with all of us. I am a MM enthusiastic and following all your shared info i did a lot of progress in my little project, however i am not able to see the way around to have my Facebook Birthday events to be shown in my MM calendar.
    To be more specific not sure how to find the webcal address for it, i tried following this instructions how to get the ical: https://digibites.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/200299683-How-do-I-get-Facebook-Birthdays-or-Facebook-Upcoming-events-in-Google-Calendar- and how to open it: http://www.wikihow.com/Sync-Facebook-Events-to-iCal but i did not succeed.
    Any suggestion? Much appreciated
