MacMost Now 272: Publishing An iCal Calendar

You can publish your own iCal calendar to MobileMe or to your own hosted server. Others can then subscribe to your calendar. It is a great way to make a list of events available to others.

    Thanks for this tutorial. Is there a way to publish iCal to Google calendars? If yes how?. I see on your tutorial larger iCal fonts. How is that done.
    Thanks,

      You don’t publish an iCal calendar to Google calendar. Instead, you create a Google Calendar, and then edit it through iCal. Same result, different approach. Just look in your iCal prefs for Accounts and add your Google account. Then you can add any calendar from that account to iCal.
      I don’t think I’m using larger font sizes in the video. I don’t think you can change the size.

    “Same result, different approach”

    That’s not entirely true. If you already have an iCal calendar you have been using for a while, and you now want to be able to sync this calendar to Google calendar, and from there, you want to use Google Sync to sync it to your iPhone, you don’t want to create a new calendar in Google. You want to publish your existing iCal calendar to Google.

    So, I second the original question. Is it possible to publish an iCal calendar to Google?

      Well, I suppose you could try to export your iCal events. Then import them into a Google calendar. Then link to that Google calendar in iCal. Not sure which tools are the best for the initial transfer.

    If you publish a calendar with ical this way are only people using macs able to subscribe to it? Can those using pcs also subscribe?

      They are published using an standard open format. I’m not familiar with Windows calendar software, but I assume there are many calendar applications and many can read that standard format.
