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.

## Installation

You need to have the Remind command line tool in version 03.03.01 or higher 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

\$ python3 setup.py install

## Sync to an external iCalendar server (http; cron)

curl URL | ics2rem >> ~/.reminders

## 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

### 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). Same holds true for function evaluation in MSG. For example having the age in a birthday reminder results in the same string for every year. This could result in old data being provided as the internal state (cache) is only invalidated if one of the remind files change (last time stamp).

• Periodic reminders other then daily or weekly are not preserved.

• Two entries with the same content are only exported once.
