Converts the Unimelb timetable page into an iCal file
[Update - August 2019] v1.2.0 has just been released which updates the semester break date to work properly for semester 2 2019 (see version history below for more info). Chrome Extension that converts the University of Melbourne student timetable page into an iCalendar/.ics file, which you can then import into iCloud/Google Calendar/Outlook Calendar or any other calendar program that supports the iCal file format. To use it: just go to the Student Portal and navigate to your timetable. A small icon will pop up in the toolbar - click that and you can probably work out the rest :) Features: * (NEW!) Fetches semester start/end dates automagically from the Unimelb academic calendar * Scrapes all timetable data (subject code+name, times, location) * Repeats timetable for duration of semester * Excludes repeats from the mid-semester break * Ability to include week-long events that are labelled with the University week # (plus one for the mid-semester break) Please report any bugs on my GitHub repo: https://github.com/nuclearpidgeon/UoM-Timetable-to-iCal Version history: * v1.2.0 (August 2019) - update the semester break date for semester 1 2019, and add an automatic semester selection (based on which one starts closest to the current date) * v1.1.5 (February 2018) - update the semester break date for semester 1 2018 * v1.1.4 (August 2017) - fix date fetching issues with the new Unimelb calendar page (worst 'API' ever!)

- (2019-07-02) Rohit Sudarsan: Excellent app. Very convenient. I was recommended this by the IT person at Stop1 (the most helpful they've ever been haha) Would only suggest if the calendar could somehow adjust for the 1 week break that occurs during semesters. For eg. the app plots weeks 1-13 whereas officially the Uni calendar spans weeks 1-12 and one week in between for a break (eg. Easter). I find myself manually correcting this because deadlines are based on the official week number set by the university. Otherwise it's a fantastic app.

- (2018-07-10) Jack Z: Awesome :) saves hours of manually making a calendar. Only improvement I can think of is midsemester-break detection, so that the week-long events match up with the actual week number after the break.
- (2018-02-26) Thanh Vo Hong: Love it mate! Its's super useful, especially for new student like me. P/S: I fork out your code to test out some new ideas and perhaps improvements. I'll create a branch and open PR on your source once it works. Cheers!
- (2017-02-15) Edmond Stewart: Excellent addon. Should be added to the UniMelb timetable page (or integrated there in the first place!). In their defense, IT did refer me to this when I asked about it.

- (2016-03-02) Andy Pringle: Fantastic extension. It is ridiculous the uni does not provide this info in .ics form. Thank you. Only reason it got 4 stars is that the URL for Principle Dates is not right. It does not direct to 2016 dates.
- (2015-07-27) Richard Bestel: One of the best working extensions I have ever come across. It's actually unbelievable how well it works.
- (2014-08-02) Noemie Heinen: So simple to use and awesome!

- (2014-08-02) Phil Clark: Perfect, does exactly what it says quickly and easily.
- (2020-02-19, v:1.2.0) Matt Harper: my.timetable update
Hi, This addon has really helped me out in the past but now that there's a new timetable (my.timetable) system, are there plans to update it for compatibility? Thanks, Matt
- (2018-07-11, v:1.1.5) Semester 2 available?
Semester 2 2018 available?
- (2017-07-29, v:1.1.2) Javen Mao: Cannot download extension
A pop out appears: "An error has occurred Download interrupted"
- (2017-05-11, v:1.1.2) Olivia Keegan: Doesn't add to Calendar
I think the Calendar mac app must have been updated, because the .ics file no longer adds successfully. Also, the key dates page formatting has changed so the university dates information fails to scrape.

Why does the extension need to access my browsing history?
