s60-upcalendar - sync your upcoming.org watchlist with your calendar
Phone > My own > Python > Options > Run script > s60-upcalendar.py
s60-upcalendar is an application to sync your "watchlist" on
upcoming.org with your calendar.
The following options can be acccessed from the application's Options
Merge your watchlist
Perform the merge to add items on your upcoming.org watchlist to your
If an event already exists in your calendar it will be updated with the
most recent information. Past events are not removed.
Set default alarm
Set a default alarm to be assigned to all items added to your calendar.
The format for alarms is a number followed by one of the following :
* m The number of minutes prior to an event that an alarm should sound.
* h The number of hours prior to an event that an alarm should sound.
* d The number of days prior to an event that an alarm should sound.
To disable alarms, enter *0*. Your watchlist will need to be re-merged
in order for charges to your alarm preferences to stick.
Change your auth token
Please read the AUTHENTICATION section below.
Purge metro and venue cache
upcalendar caches both metro and venue data for faster updates. You may
purge this cache if you think that some of the data is out of sync.
The Upcoming API uses 'tokens' for user authentication, instead of your
username and password.
Tokens are like passwords, in that each is unique to a user. Unlike
passwords they are often very long and composed of, basically,
gibberish. This is great because it makes them hard to guess but not so
great because they are difficult to enter and users still need to log in
to a website in order to get a token. Both things that are irritating on
With that in mind the best thing to do, to set up an authentication
token for upcalendar, is to sit with your phone the next time you go to
upcoming.org and visit this URL :
This page will display a custom authentication 'frob' which is a
time-sensitive key to get a proper authentication token.
When you are prompted to configure your auth token in upcalender select
'Enter auth frob by hand' and type in the frob. ` *This is a boring
thing to do have to do* but you should only have to do it once. It is
also better to do it this way than to try and do the same from your
phone's web browser.
(And if you want to, upcalendar will let you.)
