I can't find a Windows client on the publisher's website. Out of curiosity, where did you get it from?
Radicale is just the server component as can be seen at What Radicale Is not and will not Be.
Two cross-platform clients (for Windows / Linux / OS X) from the Mozilla Calendar Project are Mozilla Thunderbird with Lightning extension and Mozilla Sunbird. Other CalDAV clients may be working, too.
... refer to the included help file
Edit: The instructions have now been moved to and incorporated in the help file.
Hi there! Excuses the basic questions but, what else would I need to make this work? Windows can't execute python scripts, can it? Also, would it work on Win 8.1 x64? Theoretically, this could allow me to run a caldav/cardav server on Windows? Thank you!
Edit: nevermind I read the help files and figured out portable Python is included. Now I need to figure out how to configure it all.
Edit2: I'm happy to let you know I got it to work on Win 8.1. It works flawlessly between desktop, desktop client (Thunderbird w/Lightning) and iOS devices. Now I just need to figure out SSL. Thanks!
Edit3: got it all working! Thank you again for this fantastic lightweight app.
Thanks for reporting.
Installed RadicalePortable on a Windows Server 2008: All is functioning fine.
I have a question though:
The version in the download is Radicale 0.8. Can I upgrade Radicale to the latest version by just copyig the Radicale 0.10 over the existing Radicale 0.8 (as there are basically no changes to config.ini) ?
Thank you for the great job you are doing.
Yes, I would assume so.
Radicale Portable has been updated to Radicale version 0.10, so you might want to consider performing a regular update. However, because user files in the \Data subdirectory will be respected by the installer and not overwritten, you will have to apply some changes manually.
Here's how to proceed:
1. Backup Radicale data by clicking the Radicale task tray icon → Data → Export
2. Update Radicale Portable with the most recent version
3. Delete all files in \Data\config\templates and replace them with copies from \App\DefaultData\config\templates
4. Select a configuration file template in \Data\config\templates and drop it on the batch file in the same directory
5. Modify the resultant \Data\config\config.ini if you had changed any further settings in your previous configuration
6. Restart Radicale Portable
In case you are not sure about your previous configuration, you can always open a *.radicale export using the 7-Zip program and navigate to the appropriate location within the archive, for instance \Data\config directory, and have a glimpse at your backed up config.ini.
i'm a happy user of your portable radicale app on my Windows 10 home pc.
Would it be possible for you to update the portable app to the newest version?
That would be really kind of you!
is it possible to reupload the file? The link is dead.
Is there any similar project for Radicale server with GUI? Commandline configuration is pain.
