Calendar with CalDAV Support

Calendar with CalDAV Support
Tobias Hößl
A web-based calendar system with CalDAV-support. Also brings your Friendica-Contacts to your CardDAV-capable mobile phone. Requires PHP >= 5.3.

This is a rewrite of the calendar system used by the german social network Animexx. It's still in a very early stage, so expect major bugs. Please feel free to report any of them, by mail ( or Friendica:

At the moment, the calendar system supports the following features: - A web-based drag&drop interface for managing events - All-Day-Events, Multi-Day-Events, and time-based events - Giving the subject, a description, a location and a color for the event (the color is not available through CalDAV, though) - Recurrences (not the whole set of options given in the iCalendar spec, but the most important ones) - Notification by e-mail. Multiple notifications can be set per event - Multiple calendars per user - Access to the events using CalDAV (using iPhone, Thunderbird Lightning etc., see below) - Read-only access to the friendica-native events (also using CalDAV) - The friendica-contacts are made available using CardDAV (confirmed to work with iOS) - The events of a calendar can be exported as ICS file. ICS files can be imported into a calendar

Internationalization: - At the moment, settings for the US and the german systems are selectable (regarding the date format and the first day of the week). More will be added on request. - The basic design of the system is aware of timezones; however this is not reflected in the UI yet. It currently assumes that the timezone set in the friendica-installation matches the user's local time and matches the local time set in the user's operating system.

CalDAV device compatibility: - iOS (iPhone/iPodTouch) works - Thunderbird Lightning works - Android: - aCal ( works, available in F-Droid and Google Play - CalDAV-Sync ( works, non-free

Installation After activating, serveral tables in the database have to be created. The admin-interface of the plugin will try to do this automatically. In case of errors, the SQL-statement to create the tables manually are shown in the admin-interface.

Functuality missing: (a.k.a. “Roadmap”) - Sharing events; all events are private at the moment, therefore this system is not a complete replacement for the friendica-native events - Attendees / Collaboration
