Cynical Calendars is designed to be an observer of calendar events. It watches and reports on events that are created and maintained outside of Indigo itself. Cynical Calendars has no actions to create or change calendar events. It is really quite simple.

So what is the point? Cynical Calendars lets you create timed actions in Indigo by making events in iCal. Want an event that happens weekdays at 5pm? iCal knows how to do this, and now Indigo can follow it. Want remote editing of events? Use a Calendar App on your iPhone, and the calendar events you created in Indigo will track your change. With Cynical Calendars, iCal and any other calendar program or App on a Macintosh or iOS device becomes your graphical user interface to Indigo scheduled events.

Cynical Calendars works with calendars through the CalendarStore interface of Mac OS X, using direct system interfaces. This means it can successfully deal with any type of calendar supported by your Macintosh - including local calendars, calendars shared through iCloud, subscribed calendars, and CalDAV calendars. No relays are required. Fundamentally, if it shows up in iCal and can be managed there, this plugin can deal with it. Conversely, it can only work with calendars visible to your Macintosh - you have to add a calendar to iCal to observe it.
