Life Calendar

This plugin renders yaml-based fenced code into a Life Calendar inspired by Tim Urban's article "Your Life in Weeks".

The purpose of Life Calendar is documenting the events in your life but there is nothing stopping you from using it for other purposes such as project management. The yaml-based syntax make it easy to export data to other format.

Usage

You need to create a fenced code with life as language to render the calendar then input the events using the the follow template:

  - date : yyyy-mm-dd    # (required) (interpretation DD/MM/YYYY 12:00 local time)
    title:               # (required) event title
    icon :               # (optional) event icon, use 1st character of title if icon is null
    z-index:             # (optional) priority of the event, the one with the bigest value will be shown (default:0)
    className:           # (optional) css class of the event (color, background-color, etc.)
    color:               # (optional) overwrite color
    backgroundColor:     # (optional) overwrite background-color

This plugin also support periods which is a span of time instead of a point in time. The template for period is as follow:

  - start: yyyy-mm-dd    # (required) (interpretation: DD/MM/YYYY 01:00 local time)
    end  : yyyy-mm-dd    # (required) (interpretation: DD/MM/YYYY 23:00 local time)
    title:               # (required) event title
    className:           # (optional) css class of the event (color, background-color, etc.)
    color:               # (optional) overwrite color
    icon:                # (optional) period icon
    backgroundColor:     # (optional) overwrite background-color

The example below should demostrate all the supported features. It is recommended to intend the events block with spaces as yalm parser is quite sensitive. You may encounter parsing problems when typing with Joplin as it use tab for intending.

From v1.3.0 forward, this plugin also support day-based, month-based, and year-based calendar beside week-based by writting down the desired type type: month. Moreover you can click on the a square to pin down the details window so you can read. Click again at any square to unpin it.
