There is a new feature in Rainlendar build 45 which allows you to create new events from the command line. This might not sound something that a normal user would be interested in but with a little help from a tool called Launchy
this will provide an easy way to add events to your calendar.
Here's a quick howto:
- Get Launchy
and install it.
- Copy the Rainy.dll from the attached zip to Launchy's plugins folder (C:\Program Files\Launchy\Plugins).
- Open Launchy (i.e. press Alt+Space) and go to the plugin options (use the context menu).
- Enable the "Rainy"-plugin.
After that you can enter something like this to Launchy:
Rainlendar will parse the given string and it'll create a new event from it.
Note that the event parser in Rainlendar cannot do miracles so you need to keep the string well formed.
Start times for the event can be entered like this:
"12:00" or "10am" or "1:30 PM"
You can also prefix it with "at". The colon (':') is a must to separate the hours from minutes.
The supported date formats are:
"today", "tomorrow", "monday", "tuesday", ...
"20.3.", "3/20", "20 mar", "mar 20"
You can also define a time range like this:
"for 3 days". The supported range values are "minutes", "hours" and "days".
Currently the new event will be created into the first writable calendar that can be found.
Rainlendar will always create the event on the coming date unless the event is defined on the current day.
Note! This plugin works only with Launchy 1.25.
