Help Wanted: Care to hack on a google calendar script?

[ #33656 ]
In case folks don't read the TPF blog, I need someone to help me out with a script that grabs info from the Perl calendar on Google calendar. I've got it started, just don't have the time right now to polish it.

  • I think this is related to my earlier post about the calendar [], and stennie is working on something to provide a generic feed from it. You might talk to him about how you'd like to tag conference events, but I think he's going to abuse the location input for that.

    My starter script is also available in that earlier post for anyone who wants to help.
    • I modified it a bit from that starter. After reading some of the docs, I think I can get data ranges and possibly specify the search as part of the request. Here's the script after my mods:

      use strict;

      use Data::Dumper;
      use Template;
      use DateTime;

      use Net::Google::Calendar;

      my $url = "";

      my $cal = Net::Google::Calendar->new( url => $url );
      my $dt = DateTime->now();

      my @entries = ();

      # Here,
    • I have already provided working code to Jim, but I figured I would share for those following along at home:

      use strict;
      use warnings;
      use Data::Dumper;
      use DateTime;
      use Getopt::Std;
      use Net::Google::Calendar;
      use XML::Atom::Util 'iso2dt';

      my %opt;
      my (%data, %seen);

      my $cal = Net::Google::Calendar->new(url => $opt{url});

      # Google Calendar supports OR'd category queries
      # Google Calendar supports AND'd search string queries
      # Multiple fetches are required for OR'd search string queri
      • Hi - been trying to use this (and other) code, but cant seem to get any sense out of it - it logs on OK and seems to create a 'feed' object - but whatever I do the feed is empty - i.e. I can get the version - but no entries or calendars ... anyone seen this before - its got me stumped (am busy picking my way thorugh the ATOM code ... but its a bit out of my league ...)
