We are getting ready to create an events calendar in our Discourse instance, and I am trying to choose between Discourse Event and the Events Plugin.
Reading the Events Plugin thread, the impression I got was that Pavilion recommends using the official Discourse Calendar and Discourse Event plugin when possible .
On the other hand, it doesn’t look like Discourse Event provides an iCalendar feed for the event calendar yet—which is a great, and in my view, essential feature of the Events Plugin. Is this really the case, or have I completely missed how to activate this feature?
I am also wondering what the disadvantages of starting to use the Events Plugin at this point would be. Two that I can think of are: i) If it is discontinued in the near future, we would have to migrate to the official plugin ii) Since the Events Plugin is not official, there is a greater chance that it can break (or cause a Discourse rebuild to fail) as new Discourse versions are released.
Thoughts and suggestions from users of these plugins would be greatly appreciated
I saw you are, maybe, the main developer of of calendar plugins; I’m looking for support to get ical or rss feeds on the run. I’ve a client ID and an API key but no way to get it synced with e.g. google calendar which I installed via URL.
Is there a doc file with instructions? The old link-adress where this should be explained doesn’t exist anymore. Btw I’m only user/moderator without admin rights on our discours platform.
THX in advance.
