This is quick command line tip to view upcoming calendar events in a compact form on the command line, with a single command.
I set up icalBuddy with my personal and work Google calendars (On OS X with Homebrew, run
brew install ical-buddy), along with an alias
I’ve customized the output of icalBuddy with data and formatting using this alias:
alias today='icalBuddy -f -iep "title,datetime" -po "datetime,title" -df "%RD" eventsToday'
Now when I run the
today alias, I get output like this. Handy!
$ today • Car appointment (wife's personal calendar) • 12:00 PM - 12:15 PM Frontend stand-up meeting (work calendar) • 12:15 PM - 12:30 PM Backend stand-up meeting (work calendar)
