The first phase of my GSoC project is over, and I have passed the evaluation for the same. Honestly speaking, it has been quite a difficult start for me. Given that I had to deal with ‘libical’, which is sparsely documented, and also evolution-calendar code, which is hard to understand, I have finally found the flow that was needed for this project.
For the last 2 weeks I have been working on a modification in edit-dialog that allows the user to create recurring events. The creation part has been taken care of successfully but the editing part (editing recurrence-rules of already recurring events) is not complete.
Here’s a short video demonstrating my patch which is WIP.
(All thanks to our friends at WOGUE, who made a pretty solid demonstration of my patch)
With that being said, I can safely say that you can expect a working patch to land next week that will allow the users to create recurring events.
This is a big step towards our goal of making GNOME Calendar recurrence friendly.
Stay tuned, an awesome new feature coming next week.
Until next time.
