Calendar integration

Calendar integration can be simple or complicated.
  • Simple = when a post includes a date, the user can click something to add the date to their calendar.
  • Complicated = you have a full-blown calendar integrated into your website.
I wanted a quick way to do simple integration for a date.
  • Easiest way, and what I went with, was http://addthisevent.com/.
    • Buttons were too big for my site, so I used their URLs for links to a page with buttons on it.
    • Theoretically could restyle buttons, but couldn't handle it.
    • Only downside of URLs is that they don't include an option for a Facebook event.
  • The iPhone uses .ics files—text files with structured information—for events. At pratie.com, you can create an .ics file for an event.
