A simple PDF calender generator written in go
First you must compile this program by running
go build. Then you will have a new program called
If you simply run
./gcalgen you will have a new pdf in your current working directory which is a pdf calender for the
current year that is set on your computer. If your computer says the current year is 2022, then your will now have a pdf
calender for 2022.
./gcalgen -h to get a listing of all posssible command parameters. Here are some examples:
./gcalgen -y 2077will generate a calendar for the year 2077
./gcalgen -y 2077 -o 2077-cal.pdfwill generate a calendar for the year 2077 called
./gcalgen -ical myical.icswill generate a calendar for the year set on your computer and it will output a list of holidays on the last page of the pdf.
./gcalgen -po P -pt A5will generate a calendar that is in portrait orientation that fit on an A5 paper.
In the tools directory there are tools that help with gcalgen. Currently there is only one tool and that is icaledit.
go build in the icaledit directory and run
./icaledit and follow the instructions to construct a new
ical file that can be used with gcalgen. Inside the icaledit directory there is also a file called
file and a bash script.
the bash script just pipes the contents of
file to icaledit to avoid having to manually type in all the events.
You can find releases of gcalgen and its tools here. Currently there is only one extra
tool for gcalgen and that is icaledit, therefore only two binaries need to be downloaded. If you are on
64-bit windows, then download
icaledit_windowsamd64.exe. If you are on linux then download
the two appropriate binaries. The same goes for any other operating system and architecture. There are binaries for
windows, linux, darwin(MacOS), plan9, openbsd, netbsd, freebsd and dragonflybsd.
