Plans is a powerful and flexible Web calendar. Plans has features like recurring events, merged calendars, event icons, custom themes and templates, MS Outlook export, SQL or flat-file data storage, and browser-based management.

Main features:

  • Multiple Calendars:
  • One installation of plans can support many calendars.
  • Calendars can share information with each other.
  • Each calendar is managed independently (unique password, custom options, custom look & feel).
  • Multiple calendars running on the same installation of plans can be "embedded" in completely different websites.
  • Recurring Events:
  • Plans uses a powerful and flexible recurring event model.
  • International Support:
  • Plans supports multiple languages.
  • Weeks can start on days other than Sunday.
  • Plans supports arbitrary date formats (mm/dd/yy, dd/mm/yy, etc.)
  • Database Support:
  • Plans can store data in flat files or an SQL database.
  • Sharp-looking:
  • Plans is the nicest-looking web calendar.
  • Plans has several downloadable themes available.
  • CSS-based layout makes it easy to match the colors & fonts with your website.
  • Open Source:
  • Plans is licensed under the GPL. You can freely modify the code for your needs. Many organizations have done so.
  • Extendable:
  • Plans' architecture allows add-ons and standalone programs to re-use its framework.
  • Plans can export events to other platforms, including MS Outlook and Palm.
  • Template-based design:
  • Plans uses HTML templates to allow easy customization of the look & feel.
  • Each calendar can have its own custom template, even located on a different server.
  • Requirements:
  • For Admins/Webmasters:
  • Plans runs on unix or windows-based machines.
  • Plans is written in perl, and requires perl version 5.6 or better.
  • Plans requires a host that can execute perl cgi scripts. Perl is available on machines running Windows, through a free program called ActivePerl.
  • Plans 7.0 and higher requires the CGI::Session perl module. If you are unable to uninstall this module, please contact the author for assistance.
  • Plans requires about 2 Mb of space (this may increase if large number of events are added).
  • Plans will not run on free Geocites accounts (they don't allow custom cgi scripts)
  • Plans will not run on free Tripod accounts (they allow custom cgi scripts, but don't support Perl's Time:Local() package, which is an integral part of Plans).
  • For Users:
  • Plans requires a web browser. Plans works with current versions of Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari, Konqueror, and Opera*.
  • Plans does not work under IE 5.2 on Macintosh.
  • Mozilla Firefox is recommended.
