Khal is a standards based CLI (console) calendar program, able to synchronize with CalDAV servers through vdirsyncer.


(or rather: limitations)

  • khal can read and write events/icalendars to vdir, so vdirsyncer can be used to synchronize calendars with a variety of other programs, for example CalDAV servers.
  • fast and easy way to add new events
  • ikhal (interactive khal) lets you browse and edit calendars and events
  • only rudimentary support for creating and editing recursion rules
  • you cannot edit the timezones of events
  • works with python 2.7 and 3.4+
  • khal should run on all major operating systems [1]
