Hi Jeremy, 

I'm pretty sure we've done this before but wasn't able to find any reusable code references.  Essentially what you want to do is:

  • Find or create a minimal example of an iCal export file with a few entries and confirm this can be imported by the system you're using
  • Create a viewer with the code generator (perhaps starting with the RSS viewer) and modify it until it outputs content that exactly matches the working static version you created
  • One way to compare the two files is to save the output of the PHP script and compare it to your static version with a program such as winmerge.

We've created lots of custom export scripts, it's just a matter of matching the export format exactly.

Hope that helps!

Hey Dave!

Thanks for the great advice!  I'm feeling just crazy enough to give it a shot!  :-)  I'll report back if I come up with a working example.

Thanks again!  I really appreciate it!
