* Bundle the google calendar icon for the config tab icon.
* Add the plasmoidlocaletest script for testing translations

Thank you for this one. I have a question: how can I change a weather data provider?

+I just logged in after I don't know how many years to say THANK YOU for this amazing Plasmoid. It's great!

Yeah, it's pretty good, I have a big issue though... Kelvin is an absolute unit of temperature. The term "degrees kelvin" does not exists. So may I ask to remove the degree symbols after the kelvin units? Thanks in advance

Fantastic widget! However, once I have no internet connection, it randomly clears the calendar, and hitting refresh often doesn't bring them back for quite some time.



1 month ago

It also seems to clear upon every startup, which means that it is empty until I connect to the internet. It would be handy to be able to use it offline.

I use this every day, and it's great. Gives me all I need from a calendar / clock!

Very complete widget, thanks for sharing your work!
I really like that for Google Calendar events the widget shows the Hangouts "link" to go to the meeting, Could it be possible to add something similar for when the meeting is with Google Meet or with Zoom?




2 months ago

Hangouts was fairly simple since it was just a single `event.hangoutsLink` property.

I don't use either of those services, so I wouldn't be able to test the buttons with live data. If you'd like to provide a patch that implements those buttons, take a look at this GitHub issue where I outline how to parse `event.conferenceData`.




2 months ago

Other question: does somebody knows how the package for this widget is called in Kubuntu? I installed the widget from the menu, but it seems the version is fixed on that wich was available when I installed




2 months ago

It's installed to ~/.local/share/plasma/plasmoids/org.kde.plasma.eventcalendar/
The metadata.desktop should have a Version in it that'll confirm what version you have installed.

To update the widget, you'll need to restart plasma for the update to take effect. Either relog, or run `killall plasmashell; kstart5 plasmashell`.

Awesome widget. Is it just me, or is there no actual clock in the widget? For some reason editing the 'time format' section under the general tab in settings doesn't seem to change the format for my date at all. Using latest Plasma desktop. It shows the date over the calendar, weather above, etc., but I don't see a clock? Maybe I'm blind and need to enable it somewhere...

Screenshot (note date and time format selected, and not showing on widget):




2 months ago

The clock will not show up when used as a desktop widget. It shows up in the "compact view" when used as a panel widget. There isn't really a good size to switch from "compact icon view" to "full view" like the other desktop widgets so I just disabled the compact view altogether when used as a desktop widget.

If you want a clock on the desktop, there's a number of other widgets focused on that functionality.

With Plasma 5.15, you'll even be able to use the default Digital Clock widget with a "Custom Date" format.



2 months ago

Ya, I noticed it showed up when placed on he taskbar. I guess I was using it permanently on the desktop.
Thanks for the info!

Should note that plasmashell --version returns 'plasmashell 5.12.7'

+Wow. What an impressive widget.

+ Awesome.

It would be great to be able to add an event to Google Calendar by clicking on the calendar day. It is the only thing that could improve. Awesome design

Auto-reply my request: "Clicking a day in the agenda opens a quick form for creating an event".

This widget is perfect.

je n'arrive pas à mettre à jour.
J'ai la V53 et j'ai essayé toutes les méthodes :
A) Install via KDE
B) Install via GitHub
C) Install via Package Manager
Update to GitHub master
et j'ai toujours la même version.
Comment faire?
Pour savoir : j'ai fait ça avec la version active et les mêmes méthodes après avoir supprimé mon EventCalendar du bureau (mais je ne sais pas où il se trouve dans mon ordi.
J'ai trouvé un "~/eventcalendar/" mais je pense qu'il y a un autre dossier quelque part...
HELP !!!




4 months ago

When updating from an older version, you need to restart Plasma (logout + login) for the widget to "reload".



4 months ago

I'm sorry : doesn't work, don't understand :(
still V53
could you please explain step by step?
must I delete the "event calendar" folders? (where are they?)
must I close the EC present on my desktop?
what must I write on my Terminal?

Nice widgets! It even included timer function :D good for GTD based workers

Would be nice to be able to disable notifications for some calenders. For example, I have imported my wifes work calendar to see her schedule but it is very detailed so I get several notification every day.

* Show the event description and hangout link.

v60 - September 5 2018 7 months ago

* Fix "D" in date formatting with Dutch translations.
* Add ability to change first day of the week without changing the System locale/formats (Issue #32).
* Add Polish translations by @jstarzyk (PR #34).

v53 - Febuary 2 2018 1 year ago

* Fix scrolling to current date after all events have loaded.
* Recently, google has updated the google calendar website to a material design, editing an event in the browser would link to the month view instead of the full editor. I've changed the link opened so it's now opening the full event editor.
* Refactored code to draw all event on loading them instead of a slight lag when scrolling when it tries to generate them on demand.
* Because of the refactor, the agenda now has a scrollbar.
* When fetching events, it will now wait a little bit for another calendar before redrawing everything.
* Reuse existing event placeholders instead of deleting them all and generating new ones. This alleviates some of the memory creep (but not all).

* Merge fr translations by @Amathadius.
* Rename the translation folder.

* Support moving weather icon to the right side in the agenda (like Event Flow Calendar).
* Don't wrap the calendar title when the widget is small, use an elipsis (...).
* Dynamically reveal the timer preset buttons if there's enough space. Hidden presets are still available in a context menu when right clicking the timer pause button.
* Added a 20m timer preset, which will hide the 60m preset by default.
* Hide the timer toggle button labels when there isn't enough space.

v50 - October 27 2017 1 year ago

* Added Portuguese Brazil (pt_BR) translations by clayzanfolin.
* Added notification sound when an event starts.
* Added ability to toggle event starting notification and sound, and ability to customize which sound.
* Fix bug where locales using 24 hour clock weren't used by default.
* Support creating events for and editing Google Calendar events when you have the "writer" role (instead of "owner").

v48 - July 7 2017 (Requires Plasma 5.6) 1 year ago

* Add Spanish translation by Zipristin
* Fix plasmashell crash when closing eventcalendar's config window.
* Support extra timezones in the tooltip based on digitalclock.
* The meteogram colors are now configurable.

v47 - June 9 2017 1 year ago

* Add German translation by frispete
* Add button in the config to simply installing translations (hopefully it works).
* Ability to set colors in the agenda/meteogram. Only available in the debugging/advanced view for now. A simpler editor will come soonish.
* Scale meteogram/agenda icons based on the DPI.
* Show clickable date in agenda for each day in selected month.
* Wait 100ms after receiving events before updating the interface. Should minimize stuttering when events are loading.

v46 - April 27 2017 1 year ago

* Add ability to set the radius of the selected date.
* Fix different sized labels (for 1-9 vs 10-31) in the calendar when the cell height is greater than the width.
* French translations by Amathadius.

v45 - April 22 2017 2 years ago

* Get rid of padding between event summary and the timestamp.
* Polish the Google calendar list in the config. Adding a refresh list button, mark which calendars are read only, and sort the list alphabetically.
* [upstream] Shrink and elide week names like is done with day delegate

v44 - April 8 2017 2 years ago

* Fix "ConfigSerializedString.qml is missing" error when installed via a package manager that downloaded from GitHub by commiting the file.
* Support event specific colors. When a specific event is assigned a color, a colorId is used rather than a hex color (#ffffff). So we package a hardcoded set of colours for now until we download the user selected colors from the API.

v43 - April 6 2017 2 years ago

* A notification is now displayed when an event is starting.
* Can now delete non-reoccuring events from the context menu.
* Prepare widget for translations (thanks Victor).
* Use same popup size as digital clock when only the calendar widget is enabled.
* A new event badge has been added which shows all the colors for that day in a line.
* Add toggle for hiding the background when used as a desktop widget.
* Close new event form with Esc
* Support kelvin/fahrenheit freezing points (below freezing the meteogram line turns blue).
* Refactor the config code. Add an advanced debugging view.
* Show calendar colours in the config.
* When the meteogram is disabled, move the timer to the top right, and have the agenda consume the entire left half of the popup.
* Fix timer overlaying the calendar when using a non-default font size.

+very powerful plasmoid. No problems so far. Using on openSUSE leap 15 with Plasma 5.12.5. Only suggestion I'd make is to add google calendar support for reminders and not just events. Possibly add a auto locate function for the weather. Other than that, perfect!
