Hey guys… would like to be able to use CalDAV for the calendar module…
If you are using the baikal calendar server (https://github.com/fruux/Baikal/releases) you could specify “?export” in you caldav calendar url to get the stuff exported as ICS which will work with the MagicMirror calendar module.
I am using Baikal on my Synology and want to create an ics file of the data.
Can you explain the ?export principle
@poekel You just add
?exportto your calendar URL like this (example for baikal):
[calendarname]is the internal name of your calendar in baikal. You can look it up in the baikal admin interface.
In addition: You can use digest authentication instead of basic auth for the calendar module, if you set the
I have tried this -> https://dav.example.org/dav.php/calendars/[username]/[calendarname]?export already and it ask for a login and password.
When i try this on my mac i get this:
Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 134217728 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 296 bytes) in /volume1/web/baikal/vendor/sabre/vobject/lib/Parser/MimeDir.php on line 633
Its the calendar op my wife and she holds a lot of entries (4000)in the calendar and I think that is the problem (memory exhausted) . I does not work…
Any ideas welcome
You can limit the export with some options. Since baikal uses sabre/dav you can use the options provided on the sabre/dav website here.
Maybe it is helpful for you, if you limit the export with the
endoptions. You have to use unix timestamps for this. Converters can be found easily via a google search.
Here’s an example:
Maybe you just want to use the
startoption with today’s value. This would suffice for now I think…
Thanx for all the help. It looks like a short workshop Baikal
I dont know if i am on the right track. I want to automate it. That is that items in the calendar show up on the mirror.
Is’nt there a simple way ? ( Export to some ics file ?)
@poekel I don’t know, if I understand this right. But the
?exportoption already triggers a download for an
.icsfile (with all calendar events). I’m using this on my mirror with baikal and it works fine…
The command works fine and i converted the time/datestamps. I think there is something wrong with the stamps, because
i get a file of 146 bytes whatever i do…
I have to play with it.
How do you keep the calendar up-to-date on the mirror ?
( my wife holds the calendars for all the family members so …)
How do you append the username and password ?
I think it works but it gives me a Authorization failed.
