a widget to list events from a JSON backend. the widget may be included by any website to share community events.
our goal is to share tech-related events from the various groups in beijing. though any community would be welcome to reuse the code.
to make sharing easy a small widget should allow any community to display events on their website.
a link from that widget should allow community-managers to submit events.
new events will be stored in a JSON backend, and distributed to all websites using the widget.
in this way, related communities, such as the python meetup, perl china, ruby meetup, BLUG, BJGUG and others can share their events with each other.
to allow selection, some kind of tagging should probably be supported.
also moderated submission from visitors to share other events interesting for our communities should be possible.
frontend code is hosted at https://gitcafe.com/BLUG/community-calendar.
the JSON backend is currently hosted at www.techgrind.asia as part of a larger platform being developed there. it is conceivable to develop a standalone backend or reuse another existing backend like the google calendar (google is not accessible in china, so this option is not available here)
