Automatic Desktop Calendars

01 Mar 2008

automator.gifI have always wanted to have my desktop be my calendar. There was an old System 7, 8 or 9 app called Expresso Calendar, that did the same thing. So I wrote an automator action plus applescript to do the job. Then make action a ical plugin and have it run the first day of the month.

If you find a good place that creates standard size scren calendars and is consistent with the naming let me know. That’s the toughest part. I found a flickr group that had some, but could not get the dates to match up.

Here is the site that I have been getting them from…

The action has this url hard coded into it.

Feel free to improve.
