This is my first post here. Please forgive me as I am a complete novice with Python. I have experience with HTML and CSS, but my main gig is electronics...So, please excuse me if I am out of line asking this question here!
A friend was helping me build a script using Python to integrate with my Google Calendar. I have a band, and I was wanting an app that could input one date (gig) and then several other events would auto-populate into the calendar (IE: 14 days before send out fliers, 2 days after send out thank you emails, etc).
I got Python installed and the code does the basic job. He has the Python code link to a CSV file and I open up a DOS command prompt and enter the fields and everything populates fine.
Here is the basic CSV code:
"-14","Update calendar","12:00" "-2","Send out email","12:00" "2","Send out thank you email to attendees","12:00" "4","Upload drunken pictures to MySpace","1:00"
Here is the Python code that I am pretty sure relats to the above CSV (again my apologies if I am missing important bits-I'd be happy to post more if needed):
# Two helper classes to parse CSV files. class CalendarEvent: def __init__(self): self.interval_from_start = 0 self.description = "" self.hour = 0 self.minute = 0 def __str__(self): s = "" for k,v in self.__dict__.iteritems(): s = s + "%s:\t%s\n" % (k,v) return s + "\n" class CalendarEventFactory: def __init__(self, csv_file): self.csv_file = csv_file def loadEvents(self): # List to hold events. event_list =  # Open the file try: f = open(self.csv_file, 'r') except: raise Exception, "Unable to open file %s" % self.csv_file # Stuff it into the csv reader class input_csv = csv.reader(f) # For each item, create a CalendarEvent object for item in input_csv: hour, minute = item.split(':') event = CalendarEvent() event.interval_from_start = int(item) event.description = item event.hour = int(hour) event.minute = int(minute) event_list.append(event) # Close the file f.close() # Return the list return event_list # Helper function to list CSV files in a directory, without full path information def list_csv_files(dirname): files =  csv_files =  try: files = os.listdir(dirname) except: raise Exception, "Unable to open directoy %s" % dirname r = re.compile(".+\.csv") for file in files: if r.match(file): csv_files.append(file) return csv_files
Now the above code works fine, but it only allows me to input the description, date, and time of the event. I know that Google calendar is able to read more CSV information on an import:
To add more information to your events, simply add more headers. Possible headers include: Subject, Start Date, Start Time, End Date, End Time, All Day Event, Description, Location, and Private.
So this was my long winded way of asking my question:
How can I add all these other headers into the above python code? I have read a lot on the google pages, but I just don't know enough about this stuff to understand most of what is being talked about. I'm sure the answer is somewhere HERE, but I don't know where!
Thank you for your time and your patience!
