Generate add to calendar links for Google, iCal and other calendar systems
Using this package you can generate links to add events to calendar systems. Here's a quick example:
use Spatie\CalendarLinks\Link; Link::create( 'Birthday', DateTime::createFromFormat('Y-m-d H:i', '2018-02-01 09:00'), DateTime::createFromFormat('Y-m-d H:i', '2018-02-01 18:00') )->google();
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.
