Can I use the X-WR-CALNAME attribute in a ICS template (if so, how do I use templates) to provide a friendlier feed name than the feed url? For example on my iPhone when I click on the ics link, I am prompted to subscribe to URL of the feed instead of a more legible feed name.
really digging this new styles sheet for the hubs Jon. Addition of lines separating days and better text types help readability quite a bit. Looks much better on iPhone and Nexus 7 ( even if FriendFeed still sucks in Firefox: Android).
Excited to discover I can combine Facebook Page event stream + summary field keyword search to pull only FB events for X city (assuming page owner includes city name in event summary). Just tried this out w/local musician page: https://www.facebook.com/ical... filtered by iCalendar search by keyword "hartford". Works!
Hi Jon, just noticed Last.fm logo appearing on hubs, which is awesome. Will there be a similar on/off toggle and category/tag for the Last.fm event feeds as we have with Eventbrite, Eventful, etc? Not sure if I am seeing any flowing through the hub yet anyway, but just looking ahead.
..continuing... I'm thinking this could free the the curator from the initial task of finding and tagging a feed? The same page could help the contributor test how well their calendar could be read - offer information about 'best practices' - how to write their event descriptions to facilitate seaches, etc.
I was thinking about simplifications for curating process. Could emcity offer a web page where people with existing calendars could 'self identify'? They could submit their calendar URL, enter appropriate tags - and possibly some info about their org?
Sorry - The existing tabs provide a % score and allow a view of the raw feed. I propose a third tab - format the data as a convention calendar. This would allow a quick verification that the feed not only is in technological compliance but it is reporting the events correctly.
Hi Jon - The ical validator (http://icalvalid.cloudapp.net/) is superb - its been key to identifying and resolving problems. But - could you add a third tab? Currently it provides a % score and line-by-line of the feed.
If you need to analyze what's in an iCalendar feed it can be cumbersome to load it into a calendar client. Sometimes you just need to see the text, or isolate particular properties of the feed (SUMMARY, LOCATION, URL, etc.). This helps me do that: http://elmcity.cloudapp.net/url_hel...
Hi, I'm Frank from France. :-) I've been working on events also with a goal : displaying as much events as possible on a map. How did you manage to create your elmcity.info/fb_events?location=Paris ? it's magic ! would it possible to add latitude and longitude of an event ? Thank you for your help
Thanks Jon! Just for grins - if you could provide contributors a pick list that would be comprehensive - how many items do you think would cover it? Would having a category choice followed by a user provided tag list make sense?
I talked city government into exposing an iCal feed for their calendar: http://www.calendarwiz.com/cityofh... Unfortunately, they're using US/Aleutian timezone (uses DST), instead of Pacific/Honolulu (No DST). Can I override the timezone listed within the iCal feed?
Anybody have experience pulling an event stream out of a Business Calendar Network setup? Example: http://ct.cal.basecampbusiness.com/calenda.... Looked through page code but appears all event-specific ICS exports are event/node specific. Nothing in the page code itself appears a clear way to export a stream vs individual event ICS.
