kCalDAV is a simple, safe, and minimal CalDAV server depending only on kcgi, SQLite, and expat. It is open source. For the time being, it works only for simple setups—for example, a calendar collection shared between Mozilla Lightning, Mac OS X iCal, and iOS (iPhone) clients. It compiles and runs on OpenBSD, Linux, and Mac OS X. (Any others? Let me know!)
- Install dependencies kcgi, SQLite, expat, and libbsd if using Linux.
- Cownload the sources and verify the fingerprint.
- Configure for your installation by creating a Makefile.local using variables documented in the Makefile. (You will need to do this: installation paths for CGI scripts differ vastly!)
./configure. Compile with
make, install with
make install, then install the CGI script and its data files with
- If using Apache, make sure that HTTP authorisation is not interpreted by the web server. (Example.)
- Read kcaldav(8).
The kcaldav(8) manual has a complete description of supported CalDAV features. You'll also want to read kcaldav.passwd(1). If these manpages lack information or clarity, that's a bug. For bug-reports and comments on usage (please let me know!), contact Kristaps. For developers, you can peruse the database schema if you'd like to work on kCalDAV.
