Export Formats

Some, but not necessarily all, of the supported formats are described in the this section.

KonsoleKalendar Text Format

KonsoleKalendar Text Format is KonsoleKalendar's native format and is designed to be comfortable to read and to be parsed by follow-on scripts.

The KonsoleKalendar Text Format is:

Date:\t<Incidence Date>(dddd yyyy-MM-dd)
[\t<Incidence Start Time>(hh:mm) - <Incidence End Time>(hh:mm)]
Summary:
\t<Incidence Summary | "(no summary available)">
Location:
\t<Incidence Location | "(no location available)">
Description:
\t<Incidence Description | "(no description available)">
UID:
\t<Incidence UID>
--------------------------------------------------

For example:

Date:   Tuesday 2003-11-01
        08:00 - 09:00
Summary:
        Staff Meeting
Location:
        Conference Room
Description:
        Meet with the entire staff to discuss the project.
UID:
        KonsoleKalendar-1128954167.1013
--------------------------------------------------

KonsoleKalendar Short Text Format

Short Text Format provides a more compact, less verbose version of KonsoleKalendar's native format.

The KonsoleKalendar Short Text Format is:

[--------------------------------------------------]
{<Incidence Date>(dddd yyyy-MM-dd)]
[<Incidence Start Time>(hh:mm) - <Incidence End Time>(hh:mm) | "\t"]
\t<Incidence Summary | \t>[, <Incidence Location>]
\t\t<Incidence Description | "\t">

For example:

--------------------------------------------------
Tuesday 2003-11-01
08:00 - 09:00   Staff Meeting, Conference Room
                Meet with the entire staff to discuss the project.

Comma-Separated Values (CSV) Format

Comma-Separated Value Format displays the event values in the same order as KonsoleKalendar Text format. The only difference is that all the information is on the same row with each field separated by a comma. The resulting exported files can be imported directly into spreadsheet programs like KSpread, OpenOffice.org Calc, and Microsoft® Excel. Also, CSV format is easy to parse with follow-on scripts.

The Comma-Separated Value (CSV) format is:

YYYY-MM-DD,HH:MM,YYYY-MM-DD,HH:MM,Summary,Location,Description,UID

For example:

2003-11-01,08:00,2003-11-01,09:00,Staff Meeting,Conference Room,Meet in the big conference \
room with the entire staff.,KonsoleKalendar-1128954167.1013
