Calendar generator

The calendar

It is the most convenient for me to organize my schedule in a monthly table on A4 paper, with days in the rows and the hours in the columns. First I tried to find a suitable online generator, but nothing I tried matched my needs. For about a year I prepared the tables manually in OpenOffice. Realizing that such tables will be the choice for future years, I wrote the following Python script that generates directly printable PDF files for each month specified. I believe you will find it useful, too!

As an example, you may download the joined 12-page calendars for whole years:

2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020,
2021, 2022, 2023, 2024, 2025, 2026, 2027, 2028, 2029, 2030,
2031, 2032, 2033, 2034, 2035, 2036, 2037, 2038, 2039, 2030,
2041, 2042, 2043, 2044, 2045, 2046, 2047, 2048, 2049, 2050,
2051, 2052, 2053, 2054, 2055, 2056, 2057, 2058, 2059, 2060...

The Python script

You may download the script here:

cal.py

Feel free to edit it to your needs. It is also a good example of making tables with the reportlab module in python. Usage is very simple; download it and run, e. g.,

python cal.py         # generates calendar for current month

You may specify the month as the first parameter, and optionally also the year as the second parameter.

python cal.py 7	# generates July of the current year
python cal.py 7 2015	# generates July 2015
