Hello Everyone,

Not sure if there is a better place to post this, I am working on a calendar module for Orchard and it is well under way but I am always looking for valuable input from other developers/users to make it a successful module.  The link for the development site of this module is here:

https://orchardcalendar.codeplex.com/SourceControl/list/changesets

This module utilizes the open source FullCalendar jQuery plugin and information on this plugin can be found here:

http://arshaw.com/fullcalendar/

This is a great open source calendar and as soon as I saw it I felt it would have a lot of value in Orchard.  If you agree, feel free to lend your skills/comments on the Orchard Calendar codeplex page listed above. 

I am currently working on the following two areas:

  • Admin UI display for calendar part
  • Then, complete the recurrence events logic in the javascript file by accessing the calendar part
    • The framework is in place, just not the logic yet

Note it is not yet a beta (though it will install fine) so there will likely be changes that break the current version if you install it.

Hey Nicholas,

Just replied on twitter but haven't been able to get back to it yet. Like many developers of Orchard, I work on projects as business demands arise. Haven't had a business demand yet so it is still in the hobby phase (really want this module to go though, think it could be great). I believe the major file to finish is the /Providers/Layouts/LayoutShapes.cs to have it write the javascript notation. After that, as memory serves, it would be a functional calendar. I am sure there are plenty of areas for improvements (and likely some bug fixes I cannot recall). If you (or anyone else) wants in as a coordinator on the project I gladly welcome it.
