DynCal dynamic calendar icon

Your calendar icon will show you the current day of the month. Works on Sailfish OS 2.0.2+.

You can simply customize the icons (to change icon pack or add your own holidays) by following these steps.

.: READ FIRST :.
Systemd timers are not triggered when Jolla is in deep sleep, so if you take your device after a long inactivity period it may take a while before the calendar is updated (usually a couple of seconds). It's not really my fault, I tried to do the best I could considering my knowledge and current Sailfish OS behaviour, If anybody knows a better implementation, don't hesitate to contact me.

.: THANKS TO :.
Coderus, Schturman.

Hello Fravaccaro, DynCal and DynClock are much appreciated, yet I have some difficulties with these. I am not sure if it is due to the latest Sailfish updates, but since a few months the Calendar icon starts moving to below all the other apps on my Jolla. It happens at night. Removing and re-installing does not help. It's not even possible to remove it.

I hope that this does not happen with my new Xperia and soon with Sailfish on it!

With DynClock I also experience something weird: the icon has disappeared, it's a black spot now with the word 'Clock' only. When I tap on it, the Clock functions normally. It is impossible to delete the Clock app. It simply does not go away.

It seems you need to rename the calendar icons 1.png, 2.png, ... 9.png in /usr/share/harbour-dyncal/icons to 01.png etc. Or you wait to the 10th of the month ;-) Or you wait for an update of the app. But I don't know more about this fault and fravaccaro needs to take a look into this.

Fixed, sorry for the inconvenience :) I redone the pictures but - as you noticed - I mistakenly omitted a 0.

No icon on the Fairphone 2 and Jolla Tablet since 01.10.2016

Yesterday it worked, today - a black icon.

Same issue on Intex Aqua Fish.

I have a previous version installed, yet warehouse doesn't recognize it as installed anymore. Now I refreshed your repo and tried to install the latest version getting a dep-resolution-failed error

I never installed any hebrew-calender stuff. What?

Israeli holidays includes the obsolete function in the spec, so if you have Schturman's repo enabled, a system upgrade may have automatically uninstalled my DynCal and installed his.

Have you thought about changing icon shape to square? This way day number would always fit and holiday icons would look way better.

fravaccaro's picture

Well, the aim is to keep the icon look and shape as close as possible to the stock one.

I'm not closed to your idea, though :)

Surprised to see Halloween icon :)

fravaccaro's picture

I stored 13 holidays icons in the script...wait and see :)

Seems to work fine.

When patch removed it also removed the claendar icon. rebooted calendar icon back, but Launch combine patch no longer working, needed to be re-installed/activate combine launcgh patch .Reboot again, all ok 

fravaccaro's picture

I uploaded a new version which should fix the issue (in case of any trouble in the future, usually a home screen refresh is enough) - I tried on my phone running the launcher combined patch and everything seems to work fine.

Hi

This isn't update the date, only when I restart HS or phone. What's wrong? I tested on 1.1.9.28 .

fravaccaro's picture

Hi,  it looks like Sailfish OS doesn't trigger the daemon while the device is in deep-sleep state, while it's triggered during normal usage and pre-sleep state. I'm looking for an alternative solution, sorry for the inconvenience.

If anybody can help, I'm uploading the source on github.com, just look for my nickname on there.

[EDIT] Fixed, hope it works for you (at least it does during my testing).

Oh, that makes me feel nostalgic :D

Thank you for dynamic calendar icon.
I've installed yesterday and it's displayed 22, but today (23) it still displays 22.
How can I solve this problem?

fravaccaro's picture

Have you tried  to restart the homescreen?

carmenluci's picture

I've restarted homescreen and now it's working.

Doesn't it update automatically?

objectifnul's picture

Confirmed OK with SFOS 1.1.7.28 too.

pichlo's picture

I have enabled your repository just to get this. Fantastic, thank you!

Two silly questions:

1. Could we have a similar one for the clock icon? :)

2. How did you get the little icons in the folder captions in the attached picture? It looks cool!

fravaccaro's picture

Thanks, I hope you'll find other useful stuff there :)

1. It's in the pipeline, but it will take a little bit to finish it.
2. I used the emoji keyboard https://openrepos.net/content/penguin/emoji-keyboard (also Dolphin may do the trick, but I've not tried)

Fantastic add to icon. I hope all possible Jolla stock apps got some feature some day.
One of most interesting thing after latest 1.1.9.28 update.

Thanks.
