Progress: New Views and iCalendar

March 3, 2008

We had a hugely successful code sprint this past Saturday. Reid Beels drafted wireframes that we used to change the main site areas over from scaffolding to something more “calendary”, so if you go to the site now, you’ll see the start of a new home page and event views. We also added iCalendar import and export options. This means you can now subscribe to all of Calagator in your personal calendar of choice.

With the combined import and export features, we have an initial implementation of our base functionality. That’s really something to be proud of, for the small amount of time we’ve been working—just four Saturday sessions.

By no means is Calagator finished, though. If you play around on http://calagator.org you’ll see things like duplicate events, duplicate venues, incomplete addresses, and no search or keyword tagging. All of this needs to be addressed. We’re also still working on making the views as clean and usable as we can.

The Portland tech community can help us by testing out Calagator, importing calendar data from your organizations, Upcoming, and other websites, and reporting any problems on our issues tracker. We’d also like to know how you want to use this application once it’s done. Those use cases will help us decide which features to focus on.

Thanks everyone, for your help and support.
