At the Forge - Dynamically Generated Calendars
This month, we looked at the creation of a dynamic calendar using the iCalendar module for Python wrapped inside of a simple CGI program. At the same time, we saw the limitations of having a calendar whose entries need to be on disk. A better solution would be to put that event information in a relational database, which has built-in support for dates, as well as security mechanisms for user and group access. Next month, we will extend our calendar program so that it retrieves information from a database, turning PostgreSQL tables into iCalendar files.
