Integration of macOS Calendar and GitHub

Get started with a soft opening sentence and overview of the article.

I am a Mac user. I use macOS Calendar to keep track of my events and schedule. After using macOS Calendar for some time, it makes sense for me to create an integration with GitHub, where I can also keep track of my personal projects.

Integration of macOS Calendar and GitHub

In the end, I decided to have my GitHub commits represent my completed tasks in macOS Calendar. This way, every time I mark a commit as complete in my GitHub repository, the related task in macOS Calendar will be marked as complete as well. To integrate the two applications, I first needed to make sure they are on the same platform. That is, they must both be on the same operating system. Next, I needed to make sure that my GitHub account has write access to my macOS Calendar account. After that, I created the integration so that whenever I mark a commit as complete in my GitHub repository, the related task in macOS Calendar is also marked as complete. To complete the integration, I had to set up a crontab in macOS Calendar to periodically check for new GitHub commits. I found this script online and implemented it into my crontab file:

0 */5 * * * curl -s https://api.github.com/repos/mjshu/test-mac | python -m json.top

This script will run every five minutes (0 */5 * * *), and it will check the commits on my test-mac repository (curl -s https://api.github.com/repos/mjshu/test-mac. and process them with python -m json.top. With this script, my macOS Calendar will automatically update itself with any new commits from my GitHub repository. This means that if I complete an item on macOS Calendar, it is also marked as complete on GitHub. If I mark an item as incomplete on macOS Calendar, it is also marked as incomplete on GitHub. In addition, if there are no new commits or changes from my repository for five minutes, then it will stop checking for updates. You can read more about this script here.

Benefits of Integration of macOS Calendar and GitHub

By having my GitHub commits represent my completed tasks in macOS Calendar, I am able to keep track of all of my work and appointments on the same platform instead of having them in two separate places. This way, I can easily see which items have been completed and which items are still pending completion. Also, by having this integration set up on an automatic cronjob, there is no need for constant manual checking. By setting up this cronjob, it will automatically be updated every five minutes regardless of whether I am working on it or not. If you would like to use this cronjob for your own project, you can find the source code here. https://gist.github.com/mjshu/5cb8e3e6c2d20f8a4b716d6d0856e1ab#file-script-py

I believe that integration is good for productivity because it allows me to have all of my things in one place instead of being fragmented into different sources like different spreadsheets or text documents. Having all of my things in one place also makes it easier for me to know what has been accomplished and what items are still pending completion.
