An application to integrate calendar Cinnamon with Google Calendar.

So, this thread is 5 years old, and it's been labeled as "Planned" for 3 years. Still no sign of a usable calendar applet anywhere that I can see. Anyone know if something's actually being done with this?

I'm a new user. This idea is marked as "planned". Does that mean someone is developing it? I can do it if everyone is still waiting for it.

Not only Google calendar, but also others.

@dmytrol Thunderbird calendar integration is a great idea. I think Google calendar is not that important.

It would be also great if the calendar applet could read and show events from the Thunderbird calendar on the same PC. I have many different online calendars synced with my Thunderbird calendar alongside an offline calendar. Sometimes I just want to have a quick view at my schedule, and not run Thunderbird for that.

Definitely interested in this one!

need a desklet that has field boxes to let me add a calendar event to google calendar immediately.

I never liked evolution in the old days and always found it too clunky.

Google web apps displaced it.

We do need a desktop app though - as described - for quick calendar add.
It must synch continuously - like the phones do.


A desktop app that syncs with the Google calendar and displays agenda etc would be very useful as well

Yes! Please! I just switch from Mint 13 (MATE) to Mint 17 (Cinnamon), and the one thing I used constantly in MATE, which is a huge, glaring, terrible (I could go on) omission with Cinnamon, is calendar integration on the panel. I personally used to run my Google calendars into Evolution, which would then integrate with indicator-datetime-gtk2 through the mate-indicator-applet. But, however it's done, I NEED this in Cinnamon! I want to have quick access to a simple list of appointments/events on my calendar, and easy access to editing/creating events by clicking on the date in the pop-up calendar. It's one of the few places I've found where Cinnamon still looks incomplete next to MATE.

Very good idea to incorporate a decent calendar/contacts application in Mint! What about integration with e-mail? On the one hand a solution like Gnome Evolution seems nice. Though, on the other hand the way Mac OS supports it is perhaps more univeral?

Echoing to what others say: make an option to turn it off!

As long as it is not mandatory. Google is turning more and more into an evil empire

Cinnamon calendar really should be integrated with more online calendars, just like Google calendar

Agree, a real need for me as well... slick operation of desktop and vital external apps would go a long way....( gmail, calendar and contacts in one click off the Bar applets )

Ah, yes! A feature I would use all the time.

This would definatly make me less dependant on using my phone and my webbrowser and allow me to spend more time in mint!

Need this! I use google calendars for both work and home. this would mean quicker access for me, and being able to follow appointments without having thunderbird open all the time

an app to integrate google calendar with our desktop calendar would be very helpful and provide backup of both calendars easily

This would be great. I am concerned that if the application were packed with Cinnamon, it might be too bulky for some machines to benefit from. Definitely an idea worth consideration!

I personally use Google calendar since it links with my Blackberry. Android phones have increased in popularity. Neater integration with our existing calendar would be a great advantage.
