Access Google Calendar From Linux / UNIX / Mac OS X Command Line Interface

last updated in Categories Download of the day, Linux, OS X, Shell scripting, UNIX

I use Google Calendar exclusively. However to access this product you need to use a web browser. There is nice program called gcalcli (Google Calendar Command Line Interface) which allows to access Google Calendar from bash shell. Now I can see an agenda using a specified start/end time and date from a shell prompt over ssh session 😀

gcalcli is a Python application that allows you to access you Google Calendar from a command line. It’s easy to get your agenda, search for events, and quickly add new events. Additionally gcalcli can be used as a reminder service to execute any application you want.

Current Features

  2. Show an agenda using a specified start/end time and date
