  3. Install the program and libraries libraries by typing in the Windows Terminal pip install windows-curses calcure
  4. Now you can finally run it by typing in the Windows Terminal python -m calcure

Dependencies

  • python 3
  • holidays and jdatetime python libraries. Install by pip install holidays jdatetime.

Usage

Run calcure in your terminal. You may need to restart your terminal after install.

User arguments

Calcure support automations and can be started in special mods using user arguments. Please refer to this wiki page for the list of options.

Key bindings

List of all key bindings can be accessed in the wiki and via ? key in the program.

Settings

On the first run, program will create a configuration file at ~/.config/calcure/config.ini. You can edit parameters, colors, and icons in the config.ini file. An example of the config.ini file is here. Explanations of all settings are in the wiki.

Troubleshooting

  • If your terminal shows empty squares instead of icons, probably it does not support unicode. In this case, in config set: use_unicode_icons = No.
  • Weather widget slows down launch of the program and requires internet. If that is a problem, switch weather off in config: show_weather = No.
  • If weather is incorrect, set your city in config weather_city = Tokyo. By default, this setting is empty and program tries to detect your city automatically from your ip.
  • If after install the program does not run by just running calcure, try to restart your terminal, it may need to recheck the binaries.
  • AUR package is autdated, please use pip install calcure for installation.
