In an attempt to integrate BillReminder to the GNOME clock, I set out to learn about the evolution-python lib. After messing around for a bit, it became obvious to me that every event added to the generic .evolution/tasks/local/system/calendar.ics file gets automatically synched with GNOME clock. The thing is, I want to create my own separate calendar file, so to not get it mixed with the generic one. The code below does just that, but… it doesn’t show up in GNOME clock!

I was wondering if anyone out there knows how to achieve my objective? Is there a proper place where calendar events files need to be saved? Any feedback will be appreciated.

import sys

import evolution import vobject import datetime import time

class Evolutionizer(object):

Uses the default calendar

source = “/home/omaciel/.evolution/calendar/local/billreminder/”

def add_event(self, summary, start=None, end=None, description=None): “”” Add a new event to the main calendar, and return the uid for the event. “”” vcal = self._create_vcal(summary, start, end, description) ecalcomp = evolution.ECalComponent(evolution.CAL_COMPONENT_EVENT, vcal.vevent.serialize())

return self.calendar.add_object(ecalcomp)

def _create_vcal(self, summary, start=None, end=None, description=None): cal = vobject.iCalendar() cal.add(‘vevent’)

This is what gets displayed in the calendar

cal.vevent.add(‘summary’).value = summary

Defaults to today’s date if none is provided

if not start: start =

Defaults to start if none is provided

if not end: end = start

Set start and end date/time

cal.vevent.add(‘dtstart’).value = start cal.vevent.add(‘dtend’).value = end

Set a more detailed description if provided

if description: cal.vevent.add(‘description’).value = description

return cal

def init(self): self.calendar = evolution.open_calendar_source_new_with_absolute_uri(‘Bills’, self.source, evolution.CAL_SOURCE_TYPE_EVENT)

if name == “main”: a = Evolutionizer() a.add_event(“TriLUG tonight”)
