Basic hCalendar Parser

Dependencies

Installation

Install the latest version from pypi.python.org:

pip install python-hcalendar

Install the development version by cloning the source from github.com:

pip install git+https://github.com/mback2k/python-hcalendar.git

Basic Example

The hCalendar class accepts file-like objects and strings, basically anything supported by BeautifulSoup

from hcalendar import hCalendar

html = """<div class="vcalendar"><div class="vevent">
 <a class="url" href="http://conferences.oreillynet.com/pub/w/40/program.html">
  http://conferences.oreillynet.com/pub/w/40/program.html
 </a>
 <span class="summary">Web 2.0 Conference</span>:
 <abbr class="dtstart" title="2005-10-05">October 5</abbr>-
 <abbr class="dtend" title="2005-10-07">7</abbr>,
 at the <span class="location">Argent Hotel, San Francisco, CA</span>
</div></div>"""

hcal = hCalendar(html)
for cal in hcal:
    for event in cal:
        print event.url
        print event.summary
        print event.dtstart
        print event.dtend
        print event.location

HTML source code taken from microformats.org. Output will look like this:

http://conferences.oreillynet.com/pub/w/40/program.html
Web 2.0 Conference
2005-10-05 00:00:00
2005-10-07 00:00:00
Argent Hotel, San Francisco, CA

TODO

  • Implement support for hCard contacts and attendees
  • Implement support for geo locations
  • Maybe support for other microformats?
