plone.app.event - a calendar framework for Plone¶
plone.app.event is a new calendar framework for Plone.
Dexterity behaviors and Archetypes type,
Whole day events,
Open end events (End on the same day),
Better calendar and events portlets,
An event listing and event detail view.
It was developed with these goals in mind:
Encapsulation and independence: All event related code should reside in a single package. Relevant, re-usable functionality is split to seperate packages. Plone’s dependencies on calendar related code should be reduced to a minimum. plone.app.event should be able to be deinstalled from Plone.
Dexterity and Archetypes support: plone.app.event should provide Dexterity behaviors, which can be used in Dexterity types and an ATEvent content type (factored out from ATContentTypes). For a Dexterity event type, use plone.app.contenttypes 1.1 or newer.
Standards compliancy: We support the icalendar standard (RFC5545) including recurrence.
Recurring events based on the RFC5545 standard.
