Colors for different calendars 7 Years, 1 Month ago  
I'm using a bunch of different Google Calendars with Rainlendar. It would be very nice if Rainlendar would show the entries in the same color GC does. Or at least an option which lets you specify the color of certain calendars would be great.

This is doable - for instance by assigning a specific category to each calendar. To make it look pretty, you may have to tweak the skin to show the right colours.

On my personal skin (to be uploaded once I have cleaned up the xml) - I ended up including generic colour categories for this purpose (Category "pink" assigned to my birthday.ics calendar in Options-Calendars-Visual Category).

Well - basically it is easy, sort of. Just unzip the .r2skin file - open the .xml files in an editor - edit the categories (or add new ones with new specs).

It is pretty well described in the help-file on skins. But you may spend more time than you anticipate...

Good luck!

PS - for instance - this is my category blue:

(category id="Blue")
(appearance target="1" layer="0" priority="1" element="font.med" color="0,210,210,255" align="CENTER" /)
(appearance target="30" layer="0" priority="1" element="font.small" align="BOTTOM-LEFT" color="0,230,230,255" padding="0,0,0,3" ignoredefault="1" /)
(/category)

Thanks for your fast help. It would be cool if Rainy could make this easier.

Actually - I don't think any easier interface could do justice to the possibilities. And easier would take all the fun out of it.

Once I've cleaned up my skin, I will post it - then you can use that and assign colours to your different calendars. That will be fairly easy ...
