Calendar shows no events

  • Hello,

    I installed MM2 cloning it from the GitHub repo. I want to display events from multiple ical calendars.
    Because my collaboration server uses a self signed certificate I provide the ics files via a local webserver.

    The problem I have is that the interface always says that there are no events, no matter which ics file I try.

    My config looks like this:

                            module: "calendar",
                            header: "Kalender",
                            position: "bottom_left",
                            config: {
                                    calendars: [
                                                    url: 'http://localhost/calendars/Calendar.ics',
                                                    symbol: 'archive'
                                    fetchInterval: 60000

    The application starts without any errors.

    Running the debug.js shows the following:

    Create fetcher ...
    Create fetcher done! 

    It seems like it can’t parse the file which looks as follows e.g.:

    SUMMARY:Do some stuff

    The file contains a lot more events in the past and the future - also none all-day events.

    The system is a Raspberry 2 Model B running raspbian. I start MM2 as “serveronly” and open the interface from another device.
    Only thing left to mention is that I had to replace node from the repository doing this. Otherwise it wasn’t possible to run “npm install”

    It would be great, if you have an idea.
    Thanks and regards!

  • @lum3n Can you try to use a public online ics file and see if it get parsed correctly? If so download it and make it available through your local server, then try to parse it locally. After that you should know if it is your ics file or there is some issue with your environment somewhere.
