Yorba's California Calendar

Yorba team has introduced its calendar app ‘California’ two months ago. Now the first release California 0.1.0 (UNSTABLE) is available.

Yorba's California calendar

California is a new calendar application for GNOME 3. It’s currently under heavy development. It features:

  • Modern, clean interface
  • Quick setup (if any is required at all)
  • Uses EDS for calendar access, potentially other specialized backends
  • Quickly add events with natural-language parser
  • Desktop notification of events

If you’re using Google Calendar or web calendar (.ics), you can import them to California from its menu.


Install California:

NOTE: California is unstable and in active development at the moment. Use it at your own risk!

Press Ctrl+Alt+T on keyboard to open the terminal. When it opens, run the commands below one by one to install it from Yorba’s daily build PPA:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:yorba/daily-builds

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install california

Because the PPA also contains development versions of Geary and Shotwell, you may remove the PPA after:

sudo add-apt-repository -r ppa:yorba/daily-builds

sudo apt-get update

Or, download the California calendar directly from the PPA page.
