This script converts an ical calendar (for instance, as exported from google calendar) into an org-mode document. It is conceived as a replacement of the awk script located here:
The main difference is that ical2orgpy correctly manages recurring events of "yearly", "daily" and "weekly" types. ical2orgpy duplicates all recurring events falling into a specified time-frame into the exported org-document.
The command ical2orgpy is provided by means of python package ical2orgpy.
Use pip (recommended to install into virtualenv):
$ pip install ical2orgpy
.. info:: The package is still to be published into pypi.
Installing from source code
You can install the package directly from git source like this:
$ cd <to project folder> $ pip install --user .
To use the script, just call:
Alternatively, you can use the pipsi package, by just doing:
$ curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/mitsuhiko/pipsi/master/get-pipsi.py | python $ cd <to project folder> $ pipsi install .
Simply use the ical2orgpy command:
$ ical2orgpy --help
or, if installed locally from the git repo:
The script requires two files, the input ics and the output org document. Usually, ical2orgpy is called within a script that grabs the ical file from some source (i.e. Google Calendar), and generates the appropriate org document. Such an script would have the following shape:
#!/bin/bash # customize these WGET=<path to wget> ICS2ORG=<path to ical2org> ICSFILE=$(mktemp) ORGFILE=<path to orgfile> URL=<url to your private Google calendar> # no customization needed below $WGET -O $ICSFILE $URL $ICS2ORG $ICSFILE $ORGFILE rm -f $ICSFILE

Clone the repository and cd into it.
Assuming you have Python 2.7 and tox package installed:
$ tox -e py27
Then activate the virtualenv:
$ source .tox/py27/bin/activate (py27)$
And use here the package.
