Frigcal — Personal Calendar GUI; No Login Required


Welcome to the products page for Frigcal, a calendar that's personal, private, and portable. Frigcal is a GUI program coded in Python/Tk, which stores your calendar entries in portable ICS files that work across platforms and programs. With Frigcal, your calendar data is your business, not something to be scanned and monetized by nosy companies. For a quick tour of Frigcal's features, see its User Guide's Introducing Frigcal, its PC screenshots, and its Android how-to.

New: Frigcal's source-code package below (only) was updated in May-2022, to patch an import statement in the embedded pytz library broken by a change in Python 3.10. The fix is crucial on Android, which runs only source code.


Frigcal runs on Mac OS (a.k.a. macOS), Windows, Linux, and Android. It's available as a platform-specific Mac app, Windows exe (both 64- and 32-bit), and Linux executable, plus a complete source-code package that runs on all four platforms. Click the download link below to fetch the package you wish to use. The app, exes, and executable may be easier to install and run, but source code can be studied, is required on Android today, and nullifies issues covered by the next section's pointers.

For more details on Frigcal's download packages, as well as their complete install and usage instructions, see the main README.txt. In brief, you'll fetch, unzip, and run either the unzipped app itself (Mac OS), a same-named executable inside the unzip (Windows and Linux), or the program's main script in the unzipped source code (all platforms).

The latest getting-started pointers:

Mac OS users
See the tips and fixes for your platform's first-run warnings, and app-folder permissions. Both of these apply only to the Mac OS app, not source code. The readme covers Launchpad on your platform. Mojave users: see also this.
Windows users
See the tips and fixes for your platform's first-run warnings, executable start-up speed, and blurry GUIs on Windows 10. The first two of these apply only to Windows executables, not source code.
Linux users
You can add Frigcal to your applications launcher by fetching this file and installing it per steps 1..4 in this tip. Per this note, Frigcal's Linux executable was broken by recent Linux changes; please use the source-code package instead.
Android users
See this doc for details on running Frigcal on your platform. In short, you'll fetch and patch its source-code package, and launch it in an app's IDE. Android 11 users: see also this.
