icalBuddy - command-line tool for querying iCal events and tasks

I think I'm in love. icalBuddy is a simple command-line tool for extracting events and tasks from your Mac. For example,

icalBuddy eventsToday+7

prints out the calendar events for the next week, including recurring events. I was googling around for applescripts to do this, and handling recurring events was going to be a major pain, so I'm glad I stumbled on this tool.


icalBuddy uncompletedTasks

will print out all uncompleted tasks.

This is great. I'm going to use it to export my calendar and tasks to my Windows Mobile PDA. Which means I get to continue holding off on buying an iPhone. Yay!
