Remind Python library

Project description

Python library to convert between Remind and iCalendar. Can be used stand alone (provided rem2ics and ics2rem tools) as well as integrated as a CalDAV client or server.


You need to have the Remind command line tool installed. For Debian/Ubuntu use:

$ sudo apt-get install remind

Using pip

$ pip install remind

This will install all Python dependencies as well.

Using python-setuptools

$ python install

Sync to an external CalDAV server

Have a look at remind-caldav

Share your calendar using http

rem2ics > /var/www/html/my.ics

Publish the URL and use these guides to integrate it into other calendar software:

Format of the Remind MSG body

%" summary at location %" description

The %" is omitted, if there is no description in the iCalendar.

Known limitations

iCalendar -> Remind

Remind -> iCalendar

  • Events are only evaluated in the given time frame, so events extending it, are cut of (birthday reminders for example).
  • Complex reminders are only preserved in their evaluated form (PUSH-OMIT-CONTEXT, OMIT, TRIGGER, BEFORE, SKIP).
  • Periodic reminders other then daily or weekly are not preserved.
