fedocal is a web based calendar application.

Get this project:

Source: https://pagure.io/fedocal.git/ Mirror on github: https://github.com/fedora-infra/fedocal (Please use Pagure as the main repository and make sure you run your patch against it)

Documentation: http://fedocal.rtfd.org


This project is a Flask application. The calendars and meetings are stored into a relational database using SQLAlchemy as Object Relational Mapper (ORM) and alembic to handle database scheme changes. fedocal provides an iCal feed for each calendar and relies on python-vobject for this. Finally, pytz is used to handle the timezone changes and dateutil to allow date manipulation over months/years.

The full list of dependencies can be found ine the requirements.txt file.

Running a development instance:

Clone the source:

git clone https://github.com/fedora-infra/fedocal.git

Copy the configuration files:

cp fedocal.cfg.sample fedocal.cfg
cp alembic.ini.sample alembic.ini

Adjust the configuration file (secret key, database URL, admin group...)

Create the database scheme:

FEDOCAL_CONFIG=fedocal.cfg sh createdb

Register the application to iddev for development:

oidc-register https://iddev.fedorainfracloud.org/ http://localhost:5000/oidc_callback

Add the following two lines in your configuration file fedocal.cfg:


Run the server:

python runserver.py --config fedocal.cfg

You should be able to access the server at http://localhost:5000 (do not use as it will no work)

/!If login in does not work and gives you an invalid return_uri check
the redirect_uris in the client_secrets.json file and make sure it matches exactly (check http vs https, trailing slash vs no trailing slash...). You may have to re-register as editing directly the client_secrets.json file will not work.

Git Branches:

This project has three principal git branches:

  • master: this is the default branch in which development is done. It is the branch from which releases are made. It is the branch feature branches are branched from and get merged into.
  • staging: fedocal is deployed in the Fedora infrastructure in openshift using s2i, the staging environment is built from this branch. This branch has one extra commit that is not in master which adds all the files and changes necessary to deploy fedocal in openshift using s2i. This branch is therefore rebased and force-pushed when the staging fedocal instance is updated. Pull-Request should not target this branch.
  • production: this branch is used for the same situation as the staging branch but for the production fedocal instance. It also contains an additional commit that is not in the master branch and is therefore force-pushed after a rebase when the production fedocal instance is updated. Pull-Request should not target this branch.


This project contains unit-tests allowing you to check if your server has all the dependencies correctly set.

To run them simply call:



To stop the test at the first error or failure you can try:

tox -- -x


To run a single file you can try:

tox -- tests/test_flask.py -x
