So, I've been working on this 2.0.RC1 release for a while, and wanted to post a status.
Im sure I've forgot alot of the changes Ive made, but this should be the most important fixes and additions. Im currently working on the last feature before I release it, which is the ability to select which calendar to add the event to (EventKit).
That said, Im really considering submitting this module to the Appcelerator Marketplace, as I've laid down alot of work and time in it. What do you guys think ? Are there anyway to keep it open source, but still get the cash for some beers at the weekends ? ;-)
This would be a welcome module in the marketplace, as the existing implementations are not great. Of course, open source is nice too... but I'd be happy to contribute to your efforts. If you don't end up adding it to the marketplace, put-up donate link so we can buy you some beers for the weekend!
sounds great so far chris!
sound great, it would be awesome if is opensource, for sure i'll donate if you put some paypal donation buttons or something similar.
I think I'll release version 2 in the marketplace and keep version 1 open source. I'll also merge the fixes from v2 to v1 so it functions correctly. Version 1 is more like the native calendar in iOS, so I think that would be the right thing to do.
Im also thinking about removing Core Data(sqlite really) from the available datasources in v2, as you can select which calendar to add events to in EventKit and also create new calendars, so theres really no need for an additional datasource.
Although v2 is heading in the marketplace direction, the ones interested here will get access to a private repository with the source.
Hi Chris, I'm agree with you and I think your solution is the more balanced, specially if you merge new/pending features with actual version for now and keep this one open source in the future. Also, it is appreciated the private repository with new version for us or the "betatesters" :).
Hey Chris - looks awesome :) A private acces to give you feedback would be awesome!
Can we manipulate the data seen on the Edit screen? For example is it possible to insert own Repeat "types" or maybe just a extra field or something like that... ?
The edit screen is not customizable, and I don't have any control over it. You have the option not to use it though. If you set nativeEditor to false, you can create your own custom view and insert the data provided by event:clicked.
Im in the work of setting up the private repository and inviting some betatesters. I want the module to be well tested before I upload it to the Marketplace. So... Those who want access and wish to contribute by testing version 2.0 of AGCalendar, please let me know. You'll get access to a private repository not only for this module, but some other modules in the work. Im about 90% done with a location based Augmented Reality module that also need some testing. Let me know
<< Would love to test it and give you feedback! ;-)
+1 :) Thank you!!
Screenshots look awesome. I think you're right with keeping v1 and v2 separate. I already have a project lined up where v2 will be useful!
Thanks Chris. Please add me to the beta. I'm happy to pay in the marketplace but would love to test the calendar in our own beta.
I've been busy at work the last week or so. I'll see if I can upload it within a couple of days.
I'll send you some invitations as soon as the module is ready for some testing.
Hi Chris, any news?
Hey Chris, anything new for RC2.0 ? :) Would be soo awesome !
Just wanted to say that I havent abonded the module, I just have so much to do at work these days. I'll try to make some time for it this weekend.
Hey Chris - any news about the module?
Hi guys, finally I got some time to finish up this thing. I will be working on the module this week and through the weekend and push it early next week.
Once again, sorry for the delay! I need testers for the new module, which is 100% customizable, includes a week and day view, week numbers and much more. All testers will get access to a private repository with all source files. Let me know
Just thought I'd add a polite bump to this thread ;)
I'm sure you're plenty busy with other projects, but I'd be really interested to see how things are coming with the v2 module. I'd also like to volunteer some sponsorship for its development if that would help.. Cheers!
