thirtyboxes.py — a Python 30boxes.com API

Friday, 24 February 2006

30boxes.com is a nice web calendaring service, maligned somewhat by Joel Spolsky. I've been using Trumba for a while, but have now switched to 30boxes. So far I am pretty happy with the change. The "One Box" (any name for it would have been cheesy) is a great answer to the tedium of adding events quickly.

30boxes.com has started adding a web API as promised (it is read-only right now). I've cobbled together a Python binding to this API. I hope some folks find it useful. Please let me know if you love it, hate it, have problems with it, whatever.

$ python
>>> import thirtyboxes
>>> thirtyboxes.events_TagSearch("work")
'<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<rsp stat="ok">
