I want to have a category where Discourse topics are going to be events. I want to display them on a Google Calendar. What’s the best way about going with this?
How to associate dates with topics? Discourse already allows topics to have a close date associated with them. This is pretty nice, as I can store the dates of the events this way. However, not surprisingly, the topics will close when the events start. This is not perfect because I want to be able to discuss past/ongoing events.
How to keep my calendar updated? I guess I could create a plugin and listen to the before_create_post event to create Google Calendar events accordingly. Should ignore all posts except topics created in the category I want. However, if the date of the event is edited after that it’s not going to be reflected in the Google Calendar event.
