Re: [Inf-IT DAVcl] Contact birthday in calendar

Hi Jan.

OK, I understand.
Maybe you know/seen someone implemented it on server side (DaviCAL would be great, but other server software is OK).
Some examples or instructions would really help.

Once again, thanks for your help.

Hi Vasyl,

there is no such thing as "birthday calendar" specified in RFC (at least I don't know about it).

There are 2 ways to implement this feature:
- server side (server extracts the BDAY attribute from vCards and creates events in a calendar collection /performed only when vCard is created or modified/)
- client side (CalDAV client needs to download ALL vCards /contacts/, extracts the BDAY attribute and show the date as an event)

We can implement only the second version but it is a VERY BAD idea to download a ton of contacts if we need only one attribute (JavaScript performance, network bandwidth, ...).

I am using DaviCAL with CardDavMATE and CalDavZAP.
Is there any way to sync contacts birthdays with calendar?
