Google Calendar for Chrome

No Longer Available to Install

This Chrome extension is no longer available to install, though the source code is available here to fork & modify.

Why?

For more than a decade, this has been a side project for me, and I have enjoyed working on it for most of that time. Thanks to all the users and contributors for your hard work, especially our volunteer translators, and everyone who has contributed bug fixes and performance improvements over the years!

This was originally a hackathon project encouraged by the Chrome and Calendar teams at Google, before the public launch of the Chrome Extensions API. I had never intended for this to be a personal project that I’d maintain for so long, and the fact that it has lasted & thrived over a full decade is, quite frankly, remarkable in hindsight!

Over the years, I’ve attempted to convince the Calendar team to adopt it as part of their first-party roadmap, but it is not something they’d like to take on, which I fully understand. During the last couple of years, the number of requests I have received from various teams at Google to make changes (small and large) to this extension far outweigh the amount of time I am able to spend on it.

At this point, it is clear to me that it’s best for our 5 MM+ users, for Google, and for myself to declare this project formally shut down.

I realize this is disruptive to those of you who have come to depend on this little tool, but fear not, there are alternatives! If you’d like to continue using this, you can also run it directly from source on your own machine.

Alternatives

Source Code

This Git repo will remain available, in case anyone is interested in forking it and releasing it as their own extension under their own account. The Apache 2 License explicitly permits it, and I encourage you to do that.

Other Calendar Extensions

There are several other extensions available that include similar features. Feel free to send pull requests editing this README to list your extension here.

Or search the Chrome Extensions Store for “calendar”.
