How to add an event directly to a web calendar

I don’t really have a good idea conceptually of how to add an event a
user selected to a web calendar such as Google C. without first
generate a .ics (iCal) file and then import it manually to the calendar
application. I would like to save the user this step but have not found
concrete information on how to do so. Does this involve WWW::Mechanize,
Net::Http, and XML data? I would appreciate an outline of steps
involved to achieve this.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Kevin,

Google does have a set of APIs for accessing their products. I’m not
sure how these would work together with Rails, but probably fine.

I’m in the process of doing something like that myself.
Like Josh said, they don’t have a Rails API/module, but they give
specs about the protocol used.
basically, it’s XML over HTTP. I think we can do something with that.
I’m still figuring it out myself.
