Caldav

Warning: The caldav integration is in an early alpha stage and has bugs. It works well with some clients while having issues with others. If you encounter issues, please report them

Vikunja supports managing tasks via the caldav VTODO extension.

Urls are:

  • /principals/<username>/: Returns urls for list discovery. Use this url to initially make connections to new clients.

Dev logs

The whole thing is not optimized at all and probably pretty inefficent.

Request body and headers are logged if the debug output is enabled.
