The default calendar application of the powerful GNOME graphical desktop environment
GNOME Calendar is a free, easy-to-use, simple, attractive and open source graphical software project that has been designed from the offset to provide a calendar application for the GNOME desktop environment.
The application aims to be a drop–in replacement of the calendar widget that is currently implemented in the main GNOME Panel, offering users a cool and modern calendar tool in style of the default calendar apps of modern operating systems.
You can view, search and create events or reminders
With GNOME Calendar, users will be able to easily and quickly view calendar events from local and remote sources, such as Google Calendar, search for events, create events, set and view event reminders, as well as to display day, week, month and year calendar views.
Users will be able to view multiple events by hovering the mouse of the respective group of events, to create multi-day events, easily navigate between months and years in the calendar, as well as to manage multiple calendars into a single instance.
Beautiful, intuitive and modern graphical user interface
As expected, the graphical user interface (GUI) of the GNOME Calendar application follows the GNOME HIG (Human Interface Guidelines) specifications, which means that it has a modern, beautiful and intuitive look and feel.
The main toolbar hosts the event navigator, the Week, Month and Year views, the integrated search functionality, the calendar manager and the app’s menu. Events can be easily created by right clicking on the day you want to create the event, entering all the necessary data on the New Event dialog.
Distributed as part of GNOME 3.16
The final version of GNOME Calendar, which will be integrated by default in GNOME 3.16, will handle iCalendar (ICS) files, as well as to support attachments, attendees, alarms, different timezones for events, recurring events, Day and List views.
