What do you do when you suddenly get a free evening? Writing a calendar system seemed the obvious thing to do. Neither Google Calendar nor flat unstructured text files seemed to fit my needs. So I proudly present: AcmeCal version 0.1.

The main novelties includes:

  • Usability: combines the two greatest user interfaces: CLI commands and $EDITOR
  • Simplicity: everything is optional but the start time of an event.
  • Scriptability: it is just a couple of simple perl modules
  • Readability: events is formatted with YAML

And all that in just under 400 lines of code. As of version 0.1 some important features remains to be implemented, for example documentation.

Warning: Neither the comand line interface, nor the perl API, nor plutonium is stable.
