Malakal is a day planner application. I crafted it because I was not able to find a comfortable calendar application for Linux.
I consider it in a mostly usable state - I myself have been using it on a daily basis for around a year now. Bug reports, feature requests, and contributions are warmly welcomed.
- quickly add/modify/relocate/clone/delete events
- notify on event starts
- stored as standard ical files
- post-update command (for running e.g. vdirsyncher)
- click to edit event title
- snapping mode (hold down shift to precision mode)
- ctrl-z to undo modifications
- drag on blank to create events
- drag on an event to change its begin/end time or move the event
- ctrl-drag on an event to clone it
- right-click on an event to open menu (for event detail & deletion)
- right-click on blank area to open calendar view
- quickly jumping to dates in calendar view
- current date/time indicator
- full keyboard support for navigation/event manipulation
Typical calendar features that are not supported by malakal:
- synchronization/webdav: for now, you can use vdirsync for synchronization
- command line query: malakal happily shares local ical files with [[https://github.com/pimutils/khal][khal]]
- recurrent events: it may add a lot of complexity so it's not currently planned
- Keyboard shortcuts
| Keys | Actions | |-----------------+------------------------------------| | Tab/Shift-Tab | Focus previous/next event | | Arrow keys | Focus event on the given direction | | Ctrl+Arrow keys | Move focused event | | Shift+Up/Down | Resize focused event | | n | Create new event | | x/Del | Delete focused event |
Arrow keys can be substituted for vim-style navigation keys (hjkl) in all above cases.
If you have rust on your computer, you can type:
#+begin_src cargo install malakal #+end_src
Alternatively, you can download the binary from release page.
