Localise emacs calendar to Norwegian

branch: master

Norwegian localisation of Emacs Calendar

Based on http://bigwalter.net/daniel/elisp/sv-kalender.el v.1.8 by Daniel Jensen.

Usage

Put it somewhere in your load-path, then put something like this in your ~/.emacs:

(when (require 'calendar-norway nil 'noerror)
  ;; Localise date format, weekdays, months, lunar/solar names:
  (calendar-norway-common-settings)
  (setq calendar-holidays
     (append
      ;; Include days where you don't have to work:
      calendar-norway-raude-dagar
      ;; Include other days that people celebrate:
      calendar-norway-andre-merkedagar
      ;; Include daylight savings time:
      calendar-norway-dst
      ;; And then you can add some non-Norwegian holidays etc. if you like:
      '((holiday-fixed 3 17 "St. Patricksdag")
        (holiday-fixed 10 31 "Hallowe'en")
        (holiday-float 11 4 4 "Thanksgiving")
        (solar-equinoxes-solstices)))))

If you just want “red calendar days” and the Norwegian date formats, the following would be enough:

(when (require 'calendar-norway nil 'noerror)
  ;; Localise date format, weekdays, months, lunar/solar names:
  (calendar-norway-common-settings)
  ;; Show days where you don't have to work:
  (setq calendar-holidays calendar-norway-raude-dagar))

Note: the function calendar-norway-common-settings changes some settings that you may have already touched in your ~/.emacs (e.g. calendar-date-display-form), see the function definition for what it does.

I highly recommend calfw if you want a great-looking Emacs calendar that works with diary/org-mode/icalendar/howm/etc.
