NAME

Net::Google::Calendar - programmatic access to Google's Calendar API

SYNOPSIS

    my $cal = Net::Google::Calendar->new( url => $url );
    $cal->login($u, $p);


    for ($cal->get_events()) {
        print $_->title."\n";
        print $_->content->body."\n*****\n\n";
    }

    my $entry = Net::Google::Calendar::Entry->new();
    $entry->title($title);
    $entry->content("My content");
    $entry->location('London, England');
    $entry->transparency('transparent');
    $entry->status('confirmed');
    $entry->when(DateTime->now, DateTime->now() + DateTime::Duration->new( hours => 6 ) );


    my $author = Net::Google::Calendar::Person->new();
    $author->name('Foo Bar');
    $author->email('foo@bar.com');
    $entry->author($author);

    my $tmp = $cal->add_entry($entry);
    die "Couldn't add event: $@\n" unless defined $tmp;

    print "Events=".scalar($cal->get_events())."\n";

    $tmp->content('Updated');

    $cal->update_entry($tmp) || die "Couldn't update ".$tmp->id.": $@\n";

    $cal->delete_entry($tmp) || die "Couldn't delete ".$tmp->id.": $@\n";

DESCRIPTION

Interact with Google's new calendar.

METHODS

new <opts>

Create a new instance. opts is a hash which must contain your private Google url.

See

    http://code.google.com/apis/gdata/calendar.html#find_feed_url

for how to get that.

login <username> <password>

Login to google.

get_events [ %opts ]

Return a list of Net::Google::Calendar::Entry objects;

You can pass in a hash of options which map to the Google Data API's generic searching mechanisms plus the specific calendar ones.

See

    http://code.google.com/apis/gdata/protocol.html#query-requests

for more details.

q

Full-text query string

When creating a query, list search terms separated by spaces, in the form q=term1 term2 term3. (As with all of the query parameter values, the spaces must be URL encoded.) The GData service returns all entries that match all of the search terms (like using AND between terms). Like Google's web search, a GData service searches on complete words (and related words with the same stem), not substrings.

To search for an exact phrase, enclose the phrase in quotation marks:

    q => '"exact phrase'

To exclude entries that match a given term, use the form

    q => '-term'

The search is case-insensitive.

Example: to search for all entries that contain the exact phrase 'Elizabeth Bennet' and the word 'Darcy' but don't contain the word 'Austen', use the following query:

    q => '"Elizabeth Bennet" Darcy -Austen'
category

Category filter

To search in just one category do

    category => 'Fritz'    

You can query on multiple categories by listing multiple category parameters. For example

    category => [ 'Fritz', 'Laurie' ]

returns entries that match both categories.

To do an OR between terms, use a pipe character (|). For example

    category => 'Fritz|Laurie'

returns entries that match either category.

To exclude entries that match a given category, use the form

    category => '-categoryname'

You can, of course, mix and match

    [ 'Jo', 'Fritz|Laurie', '-Simon' ]

means in category

    (Jo AND ( Fritz OR Laurie ) AND (NOT Simon)) 
author

Entry author

The service returns entries where the author name and/or email address match your query string.

updated-min
updated-max

Bounds on the entry publication date.

Use DateTime objects or the RFC 3339 timestamp format. For example: 2005-08-09T10:57:00-08:00.

The lower bound is inclusive, whereas the upper bound is exclusive.

start-min
start-max

Respectively, the earliest event start time to match (If not specified, default is 1970-01-01) and the latest event start time to match (If not specified, default is 2031-01-01).

Use DateTime objects or the RFC 3339 timestamp format. For example: 2005-08-09T10:57:00-08:00.

The lower bound is inclusive, whereas the upper bound is exclusive.

start-index

1-based index of the first result to be retrieved

Note that this isn't a general cursoring mechanism. If you first send a query with

    start-index => 1,
    max-results => 10 

and then send another query with

    start-index => 11,
    max-results => 10

the service cannot guarantee that the results are equivalent to

    start-index => 1
    max-results => 20

because insertions and deletions could have taken place in between the two queries.

max-results

Maximum number of results to be retrieved.

For any service that has a default max-results value (to limit default feed size), you can specify a very large number if you want to receive the entire feed.

entryID

ID of a specific entry to be retrieved.

If you specify an entry ID, you can't specify any other parameters.

get_calendars

Get a list of user's Calendars as Net::Google::Calendar::Entry objects.

set_calendar <Net::Google::Calendar::Entry>

Set the current calendar to use.

add_entry <Net::Google::Calendar::Entry>

Create a new entry.

delete_entry <Net::Google::Calendar::Entry>

Delete a given entry.

update_entry <Net::Google::Calendar::Entry>

Update a given entry.

WARNING

This is ALPHA level software.

Don't use it. Ever. Or something.

TODO

Abstract this out to Net::Google::Data
