Suggestion for a GoogleCalendarPlugin

There's already lots of good plugins to make a calendar. But I find myself like others people using google calendar services. I thought of an idea to develop a plugin to add events from twiki topics to google calendars.

Basic Technical Possibility of Implementation

Google offers an API for developers create applications to interact with its services, including calendar. Basically the plugin would collect the data to define an event from a form in a topic. And using the Calendar's api of google, add this event to the correct calendar (previously created at google).

Some Links

I went to these places to formulate my ideas about the thecnical possibility of implementation:


That's my crude ideas. Thks for commenting on it.

Have a look at the implementation of GoogleAjaxSearchPlugin. Some things might be very similar.

Thks, I'm still studying your code and Twiki dev. guides. This will take at least the next week, because I'm not familiar with perl (have written just tiny scripts) and Twiki itself. But since I have some code and test, I'll talking to see how to include it to svn. If others want to take the leadership on this, I'll appreciate too. Because I'm feelling too newbie yet, but encourage to learn and give my contrib.

Yes, give it a try and we'll see what comes out.

You do not have to use svn, that can come later. See ReadmeFirst. Any contribution is welcome smile

I found myself wishing for the very same plugin recently. So you're not alone to want this, it would be very useful. Also useful would be the ability to include the google calendar in a twiki topic (so as to reduce the reasons to leave twiki)

I would also use such a plugin and agree with Keith that the ability to render the calendar inside the TWiki topic would be nice.

Poor man's version / low hanging fruit. Use an IFRAME to show a Google calendar in a TWiki page. See IFrameExample.

I would love to have it too !!
