I'm looking to use the terminal more and more, and I'd like to find a terminal calendar app that can sync with Google calendar.

I'm running ubuntu 14.04

  • have you tried elinks ? – chicks Aug 28 '15 at 0:15
  • I have not, but I'm looking for more of an "app" and not a browser replacement. – Jonathon Bly Aug 28 '15 at 5:46

Take a look at:


and also:

remind , which has PHP scripts to convert iCAL entries to Remind format.

  • Thanks, this looks like what I want. I'll give it a try when I get home. – Jonathon Bly Aug 28 '15 at 5:45
  • You might also have luck with vdirsyncer + khal – Amanda Dec 22 '17 at 18:12

Emacs has an extension called Org mode (Ubuntu: org-mode) which does, errrm, stuff, including agenda facilities. The Org mode agenda can be synchronized with Google Calendar, though it appears not to be foolproof; see the Org mode Google Calendar Synchronization tutorial, and try org-caldav or org-gcal (both installable with M-x package-install in Emacs).

Emacs opens a GUI window by default; you can force it to open in a terminal by running emacs -nw. You can open GUI windows and terminal windows in the same Emacs instance; run emacsclient -nw from a terminal to open an Emacs window in the terminal, or emacsclient -c to open a GUI window.

  • This seems like a great solution, however I learned Vim and can't for the life of me get used to using both. – Jonathon Bly Aug 28 '15 at 5:48
  • @JonathonBly So use Viper or Vimpulse or Evil – Gilles Aug 28 '15 at 7:55
  • I've tried evil, but it felt way to strange for me. I might give your first two options a try, though. Thanks. – Jonathon Bly Sep 7 '15 at 23:08
