I finally got around to spin­ning off MyGoogle­Cal as a sep­a­rate web­site. I opted to rename the script to RESTYLEgc to avoid step­ping on Google’s toes. It was some­thing that’s been ges­tat­ing over the past year. I com­pleted the site over the hol­i­day week­end since I had the time avail­able. The new site is at www.restylegc.com. I’m also host­ing the script at Google Code, and I even added a Google Group to facil­i­tate dis­cus­sions. After see­ing the com­ments top 100, I real­ize a blog really isn’t suit­able for lengthy dis­cus­sions. Hope­fully, the forum and wiki fea­tures will be bet­ter for the end-user.

I updated MyGoogleCal4 with a small bug­fix this week­end as well. That will be the last update. Future devel­op­ment will con­tinue with RESTYLEgc. Since the code was orig­i­nally pub­lic domain, I opted to go with an MIT open source license. I also got the code in a Sub­ver­sion repos­i­tory which I should’ve done a long time ago. With the Issues tab at Google Code, I can bet­ter track and encour­age bug reports and fea­ture requests.

The code is still free, but paid sup­port is avail­able. I’ve also got some other ideas of where I want to take the site. So stay tuned!

    Great to hear MyGoogle­Cal is being opened up. The code really saved my tail last year, and I know it’ll only become bet­ter after this.

    Tech­ni­cally, the script was already open under pub­lic domain. The tech­nique of pars­ing a buffer and replac­ing text is rather triv­ial, after all. How­ever, in order to host code on Google Code, you have to choose a license and I went with the most unen­cum­bered license avail­able which more or less says: do what you want with it; just pre­serve author­ship. I would rather earn money from sup­port­ing the code than try­ing to directly sell some­thing so sim­ple, which may not even be pos­si­ble any­way given Google’s soft­ware licenses. I like releas­ing code as a pay­back for all the code I’ve been able to lever­age which far exceeds my pal­try contributions.

    This thing is awe­some! I’m using it on a num­ber of my client’s web­sites! Thanks for your contribution!
