Livecal processes ical files and translates them into calendars with events listed as they're actually scheduled (i.e. recurring events are provided for each instance that they occur, not just the single piece of information that they're stored as in an ical file).
# You must provide from/to (otherwise endless recurring events will continue # forever). The example here is the next 24 hours, but you can use whatever # frame of time you like. ) calendars = Livecal.from_string( contents_of_an_ical_file, from: Time.now, to: (Time.now + 86_400) ) calendars.each do |calendar| calendar.events.each do |event| puts event.summary, event.starts_at, event.ends_at end end # Also: calendars = Livecal.from_url( "http://example.com/calendar.ics", from: Time.now, to: (Time.now + 86_400) ) # And: calendars = Livecal.from_file( "/path/to/my-calendars.ics", from: Time.now, to: (Time.now + 86_400) )
