Continuing RTx-Calendar development

Hello again RT devs,

Had a request from folks for calendaring features, so I picked up
RTx-Calendar and made some (mostly visual) improvements. Also added an
option for a more traditional Sun->Sat week instead of Mon->Sun.

I put some before and after screenshots up at:
http://freeside.biz/~ivan/calendar-before.png
and
http://freeside.biz/~ivan/calendar-after.png

Wondering if anyone else out there is interested in collaberating on
continuing development of RTx-Calendar. We could use my git server,
github or perhaps Best Practical would host in their repository (it
looks like they have imported it already). I’m flexible; whatever works
for other folks interested in working on this.

Some of the things I’m interested in working on in the future are
prettying up the ticket popups, simplifying the UI for configuring
what’s shown on the calendar (maybe some options inline instead of
returning to the query page), day/week/4 day/agenda views, and the
ability to overlay multiple calendar results with color coding.

In our contact with the original author (Nicolas Churche) so far, he was
not currently interested/able in working on the extension himself. I’ve

Nicholas made a few of the BPS developers CPAN comaints, which is why
we have imported the module into the bestpractical github

pull requests welcome

Only a little later, here you go:

This pull request brings in these (mostly visual) improvments from back in
2010 (updated for RTx-Calendar 0.17).

Actually in the middle of a bunch of additional stuff extending and
using RTx-Calendar, including weekly views and scheduling/appointments.

As before, anyone interested in collaberating on continuing development
of RTx-Calendar and/or scheduling functionality (working name
RTx-Schedule), please get in touch.

Hi,

I’ve also been hacking on RTx-Calendar and working on a NonWorking time
module
to integrate with the calendar as I have several customers requesting
similar
functionality.

I’m interested in contributing, do you have a functionality wish list
or does
anyone already know of one? If not can I suggest we compile one.

Best Regards

Thanks; split into separate commits, merged with some minor cleanups,
and released as 0.18. It clearly needs some more love, as (for
instance) it appears to use DateTime to determine “today”, which is
blind to the user’s timezone – but the UI improvements are an
appreciated good first step.

I would also dearly like to gut the iCal implementation from it, as it’s
unclear what it adds over the core iCal implementation which came in
during 3.8.0.
