Convert ics file to some other format (e.g. xml)

  

Hi,

Do you have any idea how to convert ics file into some more useful format like xml?

Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Hello Michal,

If you just want to convert an ICS file (assuming iCalendar file here), to a more useful format, you can use this app: http://www.indigoblue.eu/ics2csv/

There is also the https://icsconvert.appspot.com/ with more options...

And convert your ICS files to CSV... 

Or...
You can make an extension (if there are none in the FORGE already), that reads the ICS data and save in the format you think is more usefull :)

A good starting point is the iCalendar web page: https://icalendar.org/

There you have the specification and can start working on the real thing!

Hi,

I don't see any component in Forge that would allow to convert from/to ics format. It's a pity as I don't want to reinvent the wheel.

Hello Michal,

A conversor from/to ICS is not something that seems to be useful to the majority of the community. Otherwise, it would already being addressed by OutSystems or the community itself.

By the way, the Forge is a community thing. Means that is a way that we can share components that we do with others. We benefit others with our work, and we benefit from other's work. 

And you would ne being reinventing the wheel.
If there is any library out there that does what you want (.net or java, depending on your stack), it is mostly a matter of import the methods in an extension, or create a wrapper around it. Usually it is something very fast to do.
