This morning, I had some free hours to spend on my baby Calendar, and of course I’d spend on what matters the most: the Week view.
I’ve been working on and off in this feature for quite a while, and the last missing piece was proper drag n’ drop support. Fear no more!, and say hello to the new Week view in GNOME Calendar:
This work initially started as a Summer of Code driven by Vamsi, and I just went ahead and finished his work. I tried to be as careful as possible with the new Week view, in order to keep in on part with Month and Year views. That means:
- Drag n’ drop
- Visualizing and editing events
- Properly handle multiday and all day events
- Being beautiful
- Handling too many events
And so it goes. You can create all day and multiday events very quickly:
Of course you can also create timed events with the new week view! Check this out:
And, as always, the traditional sequence of pictures with an awsome rock-ish soundtrack!
