# edave-GCal4Ruby

## Introduction
GCal4Ruby is a full featured wrapper for the google calendar API.  GCal4Ruby implements
all of the functionality available through the Google Calendar API, including permissions,
attendees, reminders and event recurrence.

### Website
http://cookingandcoding.com/gcal4ruby/ (original GCal4Ruby plugin)

### Description

GCal4Ruby has three major components: the service, calendar and event objects.  Each service
has many calendars, which in turn have many events.  Each service is the representation of a
google account, and thus must be successfully authenticated using valid Google Calendar
account credentials.  

## Examples

Below are some common usage examples.  For more examples, check the documentation.

####Service

##### Authenticate with the AuthSub service (quickest, dirtiest)
    service = Service.new
    service.authenticate({:username => "user@gmail.com", :password => "password"})

##### Authenticate using OAuth (more setup, easier for an app)
	service = Service.new({:GData4RubyService => :OAuthService})
	service.authenticate({:access_token=>my_oauth_accesstoken})

See [edave-GData4Ruby](https://github.com/edave/GData4Ruby) for more details

# Get Calendar List
    calendars = service.calendars

### Calendar
All usages assume a successfully authenticated Service.
1. Create a new Calendar
    cal = Calendar.new(service)

2. Find a calendar by ID
    cal = Calendar.find(service, {:id => cal_id})

3. Get all calendar events
    cal = Calendar.find(service, {:id => cal_id})
    events = cal.events

4. Find an existing calendar by title
    cal = Calendar.find(service, {:title => "New Calendar"})

5. Find all calendars containing a search term
    cal = Calendar.find(service, "Soccer Team")

### Event

All usages assume a successfully authenticated Service and valid Calendar.
1. Create a new Event
    event = Event.new(service, {:calendar => cal, :title => "Soccer Game", :start => Time.parse("12-06-2009 at 12:30 PM"), :end => Time.parse("12-06-2009 at 1:30 PM"), :where => "Merry Playfields"})
    event.save

2. Find an existing Event by title
    event = Event.find(service, {:title => "Soccer Game"})

3. Find an existing Event by ID
    event = Event.find(service, {:id => event.id})

4. Find all events containing the search term
    event = Event.find(service, "Soccer Game")

5. Find all events on a calendar containing the search term
    event = Event.find(service, "Soccer Game", {:calendar => cal.id})

6. Find events within a date range
    event = Event.find(service, "Soccer Game", {'start-min' => Time.parse("01/01/2010").utc.xmlschema, 'start-max' => Time.parse("06/01/2010").utc.xmlschema})

7. Create a recurring event for every saturday
    event = Event.new(service)
    event.title = "Baseball Game"
    event.calendar = cal
    event.where = "Municipal Stadium"
    event.recurrence = Recurrence.new
    event.recurrence.start_time = Time.parse("06/20/2009 at 4:30 PM")
    event.recurrence.end_time = Time.parse("06/20/2009 at 6:30 PM")
    event.recurrence.frequency = {"weekly" => ["SA"]}
    event.save 

8. Create an event with a 15 minute email reminder
    event = Event.new(service)
    event.calendar = cal
    event.title = "Dinner with Kate"
    event.start_time = Time.parse("06/20/2009 at 5 pm")
    event.end_time = Time.parse("06/20/2009 at 8 pm")
    event.where = "Luigi's"
    event.reminder = {:minutes => 15, :method => 'email'}
    event.save

9. Create an event with attendees
    event = Event.new(service)
    event.calendar = cal
    event.title = "Dinner with Kate"
    event.start_time = Time.parse("06/20/2009 at 5 pm")
    event.end_time = Time.parse("06/20/2009 at 8 pm")
    event.attendees => {:name => "Kate", :email => "kate@gmail.com"}
    event.save
