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

(new Link(
   '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: https://calendar.google.com/calendar/render?action=TEMPLATE&text=Birthday&dates=20180201T090000/20180201T180000&sprop=&sprop=name:

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.

Installation

You can install the package via composer:

composer require spatie/calendar-links

use Spatie\CalendarLinks\Link;

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