    Use your calendar when you can't use a graphical user interface

    konsolekalendar is an application to administer a calendar without a graphical user interface. It normally works with the calendar that is marked "Default", if you use KOrganizer. However, it is possible to create a calendar if you don't have one already.

    As it is strictly a command-line application, konsolekalendar's syntax must be learned first.

    Here is a short introduction to using konsolekalendar:

    • If you do not already have a calendar set up, you first need to create one
    konsolekalendar --create --file ~/.kde/share/apps/korganizer/vacation.ics

    (This location will enable it to be used either in konsolekalendar or in korganizer.)

    • Add a calendar entry
    konsolekalendar --add --date 2009-06-06 --summary "My Birthday" \
    --description "Party Time"

    adds your birthday to your default calendar.

    • Add a vacation
    konsolekalendar --add --file vacation.ics --date 2009-08-01 \
    --end-date 2009-08-07 --summary "Vacation" --description "Nobody will ever find me!"

    • Show all calendar entries
    konsolekalendar --all 2>errorlog

    You probably don't want to do this, if you have been using your calendar for long. However, you can specify date ranges:

    konsolekalendar --view --date 2009-08-17  --end-date 2009-08-21

    shows that particular work-week.

    • Maybe you only wanted to see the next entry?
    konsolekalendar --next

    • Or for the week ahead?
    konsolekalendar --show-next 7

    • Show your calendar file
    konsolekalendar --view 2>&1 | grep resource | grep konsolekalendar

    • Edit an entry
    konsolekalendar --change --uid libkcal-1652809671.172 --summary "Get my head examined" --description "I must be crazy!!"

    • Before you can delete an entry, you first need to list it:

    There at the bottom is the UID of the entry.

    Now you are ready to delete it -

    konsolekalendar --delete --uid libkcal-1652809671.172


    Beware - this is a permanent delete. You cannot recover the entry

    • Export a calendar

    It is possible to export to several formats, including CSV and html.

    konsolekalendar --export-type CVS current.ics

    • Import a calendar
    konsolekalendar --import another.ics --file current.ics

    In this case, all the entries from another.ics will be merged into current.ics.
