Working with a Trumba Calendar

Published on

Recently I got fed up with my YMCA’s calendar due to all the stuff they overlay on it. They use Trumba (Trumba offers web-hosted event calendar software for publishing online, interactive, calendars of events) who it turns out have a pretty nice API.

The trick is getting the calendar’s “webName” which I get from searching sources in DevTools, then the URL is as simple as (and they also support other formats.)

I only wanted events for one location and certain event titles, so I added a bit for that.

    title: str = None
    start: datetime.datetime = None
    end: datetime.datetime = None

    signUpUrl: str = None

    def __init__(self, **kwargs):
        self.title = kwargs.get('title')
        self.start = datetime.datetime.fromisoformat(kwargs.get('startDateTime'))

    def time(self, bound):
        if bound=='day':
            return self.start.strftime('%a')
        return getattr(self, bound).strftime('%I:%M%p').lstrip('0')
