Sorry, but I am not Android developer. Effort to set up dev environment, learn, and code ‘a small app’ is prohibitively high for me as of now.
I mean if coding the ‘triggering sync via intent’ feature is easy - why is it not in ICSDroid already? And if it is hard to code - then why asking every user who needs it to re-implement it individually by himself?
Opening ICS droid app and manually trigger sync every time my script uploads new version of ICS file is plain unfeasible!
Setting ICS droid to autosync every 15 minutes would mean:
battery waste on unnecessary syncs, especially through the night, when nothing happens and yet ICS Droid would waste battery power on re-syncing my rather big ICS file.
still no assurance that my Android calendar is up to date. When script uploads new ICS file it would take ICS Droid scheduled sync up to 15 minutes to start picking it up.
As alternative to developing small Android app to make another Android app to work I am presently looking into
to create offline Android calendar
and then this
to sync ICS file into the offline calendar
At least it has ‘load calendar’ mentioned as intent in manifest: https://github.com/PrivacyApps/calendar-import-export/blob/185af643e2c4c73bca56c6183382ed3f54cb3b72/CalendarImportExport/src/main/AndroidManifest.xml
so the hope is here.
Any experience with this route?
Any advice regarding other GPL-compatible toolchains to load ICS files to Android offline calendar by script via ADB?
