Google Calendar from command line

The connection between my mobile phone and the rest of my IT life (i.e.  the Linux terminal 🙂 ) will likely get a little bit harder, at least this is what if fear.

Thankfully there are awesome packages that still seems robust and insanely useful.

Gcalcli (https://github.com/insanum/gcalcli), a Python script to manage your Google Calendar via APIs is one of them.

Instant view of your week with the “gcalcli calw command

The program is written in Python 2.7, and can be installed by:

pip install gcalcli

And in most systems you’re done (I used some Mint from 2013). When you first invoke it will launch your browser for the OAuth, so it’s handy to have one at least the first time!
