    What’s different with MMM-CalendarExt

    But if you have no dissatisfaction with MMM-CalendarExt, leave it.

    • New parser. New look.
    • profile is deprecated. scene is more than that.
    • Beautiful timeline view (month/week)
    • dynamic scene changeable.

    MEMO

    • I should release this before my winter holidays. So this is not tested fully.
    • Bug reports, PR, any other suggestions are always welcome!


  • Module Developer

    The hardest part of development was writing manual…



  • @sean true, but I have to say that your manuals are the most complete here. 😃



  • Great module! Love the formatting, incredibly beautiful and flexible.

    I do have a question - I know I can specify a custom icon per calendar, and I can also customize/replace title text as needed for display, but is there an easy way to provide a custom icon based on text in the title? E.g. Anytime you find the word Birthday in the title, specify a balloon icon? I’ve thought of a few options to do this by filtering the same calendar URL multiple times, but it seemed pretty inefficient from a processing perspective.

    @gregp
    Not supported directly(even though you can do like your words - filtering same calendar), but good suggesion. I’ll consider that feature on next updates.



  • @Sean First of all, thanks for the great module! We’re using it at work for car reservation calendar. Can you help me customise it? He’re the config:

    {
                            module: "MMM-CalendarExt2",
                            position: "upper_third",
                            config: {
                                    calendars : [
                                    {
                                    url: "https://outlook.office365.com/owa/calendar/supersecret.ics
                                    },
                                    ],
                                    views: [
                                    {
                                    mode: "weekly",
                                    },
                                    ],
                                    scenes: [
                                    {
                                    name: "AUTOKALENTERI",
                                    },
                                    ],
                            },
                    },

    What I’d like to change:

    • hide past days
    • show let’s say 10 markings per week
    • show no more than two weeks / current week only
    • hide the module logo at the center of the screen

  • Module Developer

    @dmd

    hide past days

    In calendar configuration, set beforeDays:0 or in view configuration, set filterPassedEvent: true.

    https://github.com/eouia/MMM-CalendarExt2/wiki/2c.-Configuration:View

    show let’s say 10 markings per week

    Sorry I cannot understand what this means. I’m not good at English, sorry. Tell me more detailed description or example.

    show no more than two weeks / current week only

    I think you are using view:weekly. set fromNow:0 and slotCount:1 on your view configuration.
    https://github.com/eouia/MMM-CalendarExt2/wiki/2c.-Configuration%3AView
    https://github.com/eouia/MMM-CalendarExt2/wiki/2c2.-View:weekly,-monthly

    hide the module logo at the center of the screen

    You might have set the position of module itself. MMM-CalendarExt2 doesn’t need position for module itself. remove it from your configuration.

    {
      module: 'MMM-CalendarExt2',
      // here you don't need to describe position of module itself.
      config: {

    @gregp
    I’ve updated. Now you can transform the event properties as your wish.

    // In your targeted view configuration, add this.
    
    transform: (event)=>{
      if (event.title.search("Birthday") > -1) { // If the event might include "Birthday" in its title,
        event.icon = "fxemoji-birthdaycake" // Set icon of that event to "fxemoji-birthdaycake"
      }
      return event // Return that event.
    }
    


  • @sean Wow! Fantastic! Will give it a whirl.



  • @sean “show let’s say 10 markings per week”
    What I meant was that there were two items missing on week 6. Therefore the “+2” like in the screenshot. Fixed it with:

    hideOverflow: true
    

    “You might have set the position of module itself. MMM-CalendarExt2 doesn’t need position for module itself. remove it from your configuration.”
    Ah, of course. Set position under “views” and now it’s working as desired. Thank you!
