Using Other Applications with Chandler Hub

Step One: Sign up for a Chandler Hub Account.

Apple iCal 2.x and 3.x

Apple iCal 2.x (Mac OS X 10.4 - Tiger) only supports view-only sharing and syncing of Calendars.

Apple iCal 3.x (Mac OS X 10.5 - Leopard) supports view-and-edit publishing and syncing of your personal Calendars. However, it only supports view-only subscribing to other people's shared calendars.

Publish from Apple iCal 3.x

Currently, you can not publish calendars from Apple iCal 3.x to Chandler Hub without first creating one on Chandler Hub and then syncing it into Apple iCal . Once you've done that, you can publish new calendars from Apple iCal (although you will have to ignore a pretty scary looking error that happily doesn't actually prevent you from publishing.) See Jeffrey's blog post for more detailed instructions.

  1. Log in to Chandler Hub.
  2. Create your calendars.
  3. From Apple iCal 3.x, go to the Accounts tab under iCal>>Preferences...
  4. Fill in your Chandler Hub user name and password.
  5. Click on Server Settings and enter your Chandler Hub Account URL: https://hub.chandlerproject.org/dav/users/your_Chandler_user_name
  • Note iCal 3.x will sync all the collections you've published or created on Chandler Hub. (Collections you've subscribed to will _not be synced.)_
  • Warning Deleting collections from your Chandler Hub account using iCal will cause problems in Apple iCal 3.x.

Publish from Apple iCal 2.x

  1. From Apple iCal, select the Calendar you would like to publish and go to Calendar>>Publish...
  2. Select Private Server from the Publish on: pulldown.
  3. In the Base URL: field, enter https://hub.chandlerproject.org/dav/your_Chandler_user_name
  4. Log in with your Chandler Hub account information.
  5. Click [Publish]

Note Calendars you publish to Chandler Hub from Apple iCal 2.x will not show up in your account. However, they are stored on the server as an .ics file and can be access via the Account Browser. (To turn on access to the Account Browser go to the Settings dialog on Chandler Hub and click on the Advanced tab.)
