export iCalendar format for pages with an RSS feed
= iCalExporterPlugin = == Description == '''read trac feeds in your calendar''' For out of the box trac, only the [http://trac.edgewall.org/roadmap roadmap module] has an [http://trac.edgewall.org/roadmap?format=ics iCal feed]. the IcalExporterPlugin exposes an [http://ietf.org/rfc/rfc2445.txt iCal format] in the ''"Download in other formats"'' section. The calendar is created by parsing the RSS feed for the page and transforming it to iCal format. The calendar can then be read by (e.g.) [http://google.com/calendar google calendar] by using the [http://google.com/support/calendar/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=37100 "Add by URL"] feature. == Installation == The homepage for this plugin is at http://trac-hacks.org/wiki/IcalExporterPlugin with links to the subversion repository and zipped eggs. The plugin is installed in the standard way. For more information, see http://trac.edgewall.org/wiki/TracPlugins == How it Works == The IcalExporterPlugin examines if a page has an RSS feed. If it does, it adds a iCalendar download option as well. The brunt of the work is done by [/svn/icalexporterplugin/0.11/icalexporter/ical.py ical.py], which writes the iCalendar format (most of the hard work was stolen from [http://trac.edgewall.org/browser/trunk/trac/ticket/roadmap.py the roadmap module]). [/svn/icalexporterplugin/0.11/icalexporter/ical.py ical.py] is independent of trac and should probably be moved upstream of the plugin or of trac entirely.
Click on the Timeline navigation item in a trac instance where this plugin is enabled. Scroll to the bottom of the page. The ability to download as iCalendar should be evident:
