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 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)

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

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

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

  4. 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

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

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

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

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

  5. 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})

  6. 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

  7. 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

  8. 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
