Using this package you can generate links to add events to calendar systems. Here's a quick example:

(new Link(
   DateTime::createFromFormat('Y-m-d H:i', '2018-02-01 09:00'),
   DateTime::createFromFormat('Y-m-d H:i', '2018-02-01 18:00')

This will output:

If you follow that link (and are authenticated with Google) you'll see a screen to add the event to your calendar.

The package can also generate ics files that you can open in several email and calendar programs, including Microsoft Outlook, Google Calendar, and Apple Calendar.


You can install the package via composer:

composer require spatie/calendar-links


use Spatie\CalendarLinks\Link;

$from = DateTime::createFromFormat('Y-m-d H:i', '2018-02-01 09:00');
$to = DateTime::createFromFormat('Y-m-d H:i', '2018-02-01 18:00');

$link = Link::create('Sebastian\'s birthday', $from, $to)
    ->description('Cookies & cocktails!')
    ->address('Samberstraat 69D, 2060 Antwerpen');

// Generate a link to create an event on Google calendar
echo $link->google();

// Generate a link to create an event on Yahoo calendar
echo $link->yahoo();

// Generate a link to create an event on calendar
echo $link->webOutlook();

// Generate a data uri for an ics file (for iCal & Outlook)
echo $link->ics();

⚠️ ICS download links don't work in IE and EdgeHTML-based Edge browsers, see details.
