A standards based terminal calendar
(or rather: limitations)
khal can read and write events/icalendars to vdir, so vdirsyncer can be used to synchronize calendars with a variety of other programs, for example CalDAV servers.
fast and easy way to add new events
ikhal (interactive khal) lets you browse and edit calendars and events
no support for editing the timezones of events yet
works with python 3.6+
khal should run on all major operating systems 
Please do provide feedback if khal works for you or even more importantly if it doesn’t. The preferred way to get in contact (especially if something isn’t working) is via github or via IRC (#pimutils on Libera.Chat).
