[MeeGo Harmattan] Organiser Feed : Show upcoming calendar events in your event feed

Posted on 11:51 AM by SlipKoRnSaad

 Actually similar to DateEvent Organiser Feed (AKA Calendar Feed) pushes your calendar entries directly onto the event feed of your home screen.

Current Features

Per calendar settings for:
 - Inclusion in event feed
 - Maximum look ahead range (events starting beyond that range will not be shown)
 - Maximum number of entries (e.g. only show 1-2 entries at a time)
 - Recurring event support
 - Auto-update when entries in the calendar change
 - Directly jump to the event when clicked on the homescreen
 - Sort order of events (I am abusing a shortcoming in the current homescreen version for this - this may stop working at any time)

Control panel integration:

- Configure Organiser Feed via Settings -> Notifications -> Event Feeds
- Either a plain icon or the calendar icon with the correct day of the event
 - Customisable expiry time: events can be removed from feed either at the beginning of the event or at the end


You can download the current version of Organiser Feed at

If you are updating from an earlier version (calendarfeed <= 0.9.3):

Due to the rename the package name has changed from calendarfeed to organiserfeed. So remove the old version from your phone before upgrading (either via the application manager or from the console via apt-get purge calendarfeed). Your settings will not be lost.

It will be published to the Nokia Store as soon as testing has finished.


- How do I configure Organiser Feed?
 --> Organiser Feed can be configured via the Settings menu: Notifications -> Feed on home screen -> Organiser Feed

- The "Organiser Feed" entry is not shown in the control panel
 --> Make sure that you have restarted the Settings application (e.g. that it is not visible in the multitasking view before starting it).


Organiser Feed is licensed under the GPL 3 and development happens in public in the Git repository hosted at
