*Khal* is a standards based CLI and terminal calendar program, able to synchronize
with CalDAV_ servers through vdirsyncer_.
.. image:: http://lostpackets.de/images/khal.png
(or rather: limitations)
- khal can read and write events/icalendars to vdir_, so vdirsyncer_ can be
used to `synchronize calendars with a variety of other programs`__, for
example CalDAV_ servers.
- fast and easy way to add new events
- ikhal (interactive khal) lets you browse and edit calendars and events
- no support for editing the timezones of events yet
- works with python 3.4+
- khal should run on all major operating systems _
..  except for Microsoft Windows
Please do provide feedback if *khal* works for you or even more importantly if
it doesn't. The preferred way to get in contact (especially if something isn't
working) is via github or IRC (#pimutils on Freenode), otherwise you can reach
the original author via email at khal (at) lostpackets (dot) de or via
jabber/XMPP at geier (at) jabber (dot) ccc (dot) de.
