For too long, generating iCalendars with ExpressionEngine has been far too hard. iCalendar files fail to work for silly reasons like unix line endings, times in iCalendar are tricky, text formatting is even trickier. Easy iCalendar simplifies all this down to one standard EE tag.

Your EE template code can now be as simple as this:

{exp:easy_ical:calendar timezone=“Pacific/Auckland” name=“My Easy Event Calendar”}
  {exp:channel:entries channel=“events” show_future_entries=“yes” show_expired=“yes” limit=“20”}
      {exp:easy_ical:event uid=”{entry_id}" start_time="{entry_date}” end_time=”{expiration_date}” location=”{event_location}” summary=”{title}”}
        {event_description}
      {/exp:easy_ical:event}
  {/exp:channel:entries}
{/exp:easy_ical:calendar}

This is a first release, I hacked it together after spending hours trying to create an iCalendar feed using standard EE templates and lots of PHP code.

Feel free to modify/extend it if it does not suit your needs, and share the code :)

This plugin works like a charm - a great time-saver as ical formatting can be a real pain
