ics 0.3.1

Python icalendar (rfc5545) parser

Original repository (GitHub) - Bugtracker and issues (GitHub) - PyPi package (ics) - Documentation (Read The Docs). is a pythonic and easy iCalendar library. It’s goals are to read and write ics data in a developer friendly way.

iCalendar is a widely-used and useful format but not user friendly. is there to give you the ability of creating and reading this format without any knowledge of it.

It should be able to parse every calendar that respects the rfc5545 and maybe some more… It also outputs rfc compliant calendars.

iCalendar (file extension .ics) is used by Sunbird, Google Calendar, Apple Calendar, Android… is available for Python>=2.7 and Python>=3.3 and is Apache2 Licensed.


$ pip install ics
>>> from ics import Calendar, Event
>>> c = Calendar()
>>> e = Event()
>>> = "My cool event"
>>> e.begin = '20140101 00:00:00'
[<Event 'My cool event' begin:2014-01-01 00:00:00 end:2014-01-01 00:00:01>]
>>> with open('my.ics', 'w') as my_file:
>>>     my_file.writelines(c)
>>> # and it's done !

More examples are available in the documentation.
