kotti_calendar

This is an extension to the Kotti CMS that allows you to add calendars with events to your Kotti site.

It uses the FullCalendar jQuery plugin to display calendars.

Events can be either pulled from Google calendar XML feeds or added in Kotti itself.

Setup

To activate the kotti_calendar add-on in your Kotti site, you need to add an entry to the kotti.configurators setting in your Paste Deploy config. If you don't have a kotti.configurators option, add one. The line in your [app:main] section could then look like this:

kotti.configurators = kotti_calendar.kotti_configure

With this, you'll be able to add calendar and event items in your site.

Upcoming events widget

kotti_calendar provides a upcoming events widget, which is disabled by default. To enable the widget add the following to the pyramid.includes setting:

pyramid.includes = kotti_calendar.widgets.includeme_upcoming_events

With this, the upcoming events will be shown in the right column of the site.

You can adjust how many events will be shown in the widget with set kotti_calendar.upcoming_events_widget.events_count to a different value. It defaults to 5:

kotti_calendar.upcoming_events_widget.events_count = 10

Upgrading kotti_calendar in an existing project

If you want to upgrade kotti_calendar in a project where it is already installed (and calendars exist in that site), you might need to run a database migration:

kotti-migrate <your ini file> upgrade --scripts=kotti_calendar:alembic

E.g.:

kotti-migrate development.ini upgrade --scripts=kotti_calendar:alembic
