Calendaring with Drupal

Most people visualize events in a daily, weekly, or monthly calendar format, so using Drupal to create and manage calendars is a desirable feature for many sites. Since Drupal 4.7, the Calendar module has handled this need, but for Drupal 6 and 7, there is an alternative, the FullCalendar module. Calendar and FullCalendar are both built around the Views module, but their different use cases makes picking the right one for your project an important decision.

In addition to the features offered by Calendar, FullCalendar provides:

  • Drag-and-drop editing of events
  • Displaying Google Calendar feeds
  • Ability to display nodes, users, terms (any fieldable entity)
  • Visual representation of duration
  • Learn more about the options and features of both modules, and discuss their flexibility, performance, and stability.

Intended audience: Site builders, content creators, lovers of Drupal
