Add calendar to app

Hey,

I'm new to XDK and I want to create an app with a calendar in it. I couldn't find any tutorials on this topic for XDK so far.

I only find tutorials where  the guy programmed the calendar from the ground up, that could be a possibility but isn't there something ready to implement?

Is there something like a plug-in and a tutorial how to use that? Maybe it would be possible to use the calendar of the phone itself.

 

Thanks for any hints!

If you want to use the calendar on the phone you should search for a "cordova phonegap calendar plugin" -- there might be something of value out there.

Hey thanks! I found one, how can I add this to my project exactly? I found a tutorial but that only explains how to use plugins which are listed inside XDK. The calendar plugin is one I found on the internet and doesn't show in the Plugin list inside of the XDK.

See "importing third-party plugins" section of this doc page > https://software.intel.com/en-us/xdk/docs/add-manage-project-plugins <

Ok I solved it :) Just in case there is someone clueless like me I'm going to describe how it worked.

First I watched this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nGuHwzqJI2Y&list=PLPE0R_9gNN0tZmTxCdvfGa7gP5pTElMml Although it looks a bit different now you can reach the PlugIn section from the project folder like described in the video. Then you switch to "Third Party PlugIns". There I just entered the name of the PlugIn as well as the version number. Than just click "Add Plugin" and after a few seconds/minutes it added the PlugIn to the Tutorial.

The PlugIn I used was found on this site: http://cordova.apache.org/plugins/?q=calendar I just copied and pasted the name and version from there to the corresponding fields in the XDK dialog.

Hope this could help someone ;)
