Calendaring Extensions to WebDAV, or CalDAV, is an Internet standard allowing a client to access scheduling information on a remote. This page is intended for individuals who wish to develop a CalDAV or WebDAV (RFC ) – minus sections 5, 6, , (few CalDAV clients seem to.

Please help improve caldsv article by adding citations to reliable sources. As you can see, after the initial sync, only items that have been created, modified or deleted will ever be sent. One implication is that ideally the user should not be bothered by a ‘Synchronize Now!
If calav user did not have access to these properties, it’s also possible that you get a response like this back:. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. It will save a TON of bandwidth to only check the etag first.
Every calendar has a so-called ctag. If the ctag did not change, you still have caodav latest copy.
Building a CalDAV client
Technically, a server may support ‘sync’ on one calendar, and it may not support it on another, although this is probably rare. Many requests return an xml document in this exact format, so it is worthwhile writing a standard parser. This article needs additional citations for verification.
This requests all the changes since sync-token identified by http: The resources and collections can be accessed by one or more users, using standard HTTP and DAV semantics to detect conflicting changes, or to provide locking.
A ‘principal’ is a user.
The url and the UID have no meaningful relationship, so treat both those items as separate unique identifiers. On this url you can request additional information about the user. Every single event and task is encoded as an iCalendar object.

Every time the ctag has changed, you know something in the calendar has changed too. April Learn how and when to remove this template message. One thing in which CalDAV differs from some other synchronization models, is that the ‘truth’ is always on the server.
The list of Caodav clients includes: In this case the UID in the calendar object was also identical to a part of the url. Unsourced material may be challenged and removed.

The best user interface would be to just have to ask for three items:. Internet protocols Calendaring standards.
The displayname is a human-readable string for the calendarname, the ctag was already covered in an earlier section. WebDAV-Sync allows a client to ask just for calendars that have changed.
