# Trying Out Emacs Calendar

Contents

I was investigating emacs calendar options anc ame across emacs-calfw. It’s a nice package for viewing calendar items from howm, ical, cal, or org in a google calendar like format.

I was mainly interested in org calendar. To get up and running clone the emacs-calfw repo and add it to your load path. then require then relevant files:

 1 2 3  (add-to-list 'load-path "/home/gautierk/.emacs-conf/emacs-calfw") (require 'calfw) (require 'calfw-org) 

Now to display the calendar his SPC SPC and run cfw:open-org-calendar. You should see something like the following if you’re on spacemacs:

Press W to display the weekly view.

It’s awesome that this package exists, but too bad that it doesn’t display rectangles positioned and sized based on the time and duration of the event in the same way google calendar does.
