This ics-parser is under MIT license. You may use it for your own sites for free, but I would like to get a notice when you use it (info@martin-thoma.de). If you use it for another software project, please let the information / links to this project in the files.

It is hosted at https://github.com/MartinThoma/ics-parser/ and PEAR coding standard is used.

This project will not be continued. johngrogg/ics-parser is based on this project, but still supported and a few features were added.

Requirements

  • PHP

Installation

  • Copy all files to a folder where PHP can be executed
  • Include class.iCalReader.php to your project

Credits

  • Martin Thoma (programming, bug-fixing, project management)
  • Frank Gregor (programming, feedback, testing)

Basic Usage

The ics-Parser should only provide a very basic object to work with:

require 'class.iCalReader.php';

$ical = new ical('MyCal.ics');
print_r($ical->events());

What does $ical->events() return?

Array
(
    [0] => Array
        (
            [DTSTART] => 20110105T090000Z
            [DTEND] => 20110107T173000Z

How do I get a Unix timestamp out of a ical date?

If the date is before 1970, it returns false.

<?
require 'class.iCalReader.php';

$ical = new ical('MyCal.ics');
$array= $ical->events();

// The ical date
$date = $array[0]['DTSTART'];
echo $date;

// The Unix timestamp
echo $ical->iCalDateToUnixTimestamp($date);

?>

How many events / todos are in the iCal?

<?
require 'class.iCalReader.php';

$ical = new ical('MyCal.ics');

// The number of events
echo $ical->event_count;

// The number of events
echo $ical->todo_count;

?>
