I’ve mentioned a number of custom calendar components, most recently a nice interactive calendar with event highlighting and labelling.

Here’s an open source library called MXLCalendarManager that allows you to parse .ics iCalendar files.

MXLCalendarManager provides methods allowing you to load the .ics files, and methods for easily grabbing the events for a specific date.

There is an example included showing how to extract events from a few .ics files when the user clicks on a date.

Here’s an image showing the included example in action:

You can download MXLCalendarManager on Github here.

A nice way to use iCalendar file data.
