EWS::Calendar::Viewer - View Your MS Exchange Calendar as a Standalone Web App
I recommend you use something like App::BundleDeps to deploy this under a fastcgi server environment. Configure the application like so:
privacy_level = limited start_of_week = 1 <Model::EWSClient> <args> server = myserver.example.com username = oliver password = s3kr1t # or in EWS_PASS environment variable </args> </Model::EWSClient>
And then start the Catalyst application, perhaps using one of the bundled server scripts.
This can be set to
public to show only your free/busy status,
limited to show the title of the event as well, or
private to show all details of the event in a tooltip.
Set this to a number from 0 to 6 representing Sunday through to Saturday respectively.
You'll need to set the server fully qualified domain name, and username for the calendar's account. The password can be set in the file using the
password option or via the environment variable
If the Exchange server uses NTLM Negotiated Auth then also pass the following:
<Model::EWSClient> <args> use_negotiated_auth = 1 </args> </Model::EWSClient>
Obviously, this setting is in addition to the other
args mentioned above. If you're unsure whether NTLM is required, try it without and if you get an
Error: Unauthorised response then you probably need the setting.
This application brings with it a lightweight web server environment, so you can get up and running quickly. First, install the module and its dependencies.
Then create a configuration file as in the "SYNOPSIS" section, above, and save it in your current directory as
ews_calendar_viewer_local.conf. Finally, run the
ews_calendar_viewer_server.pl script. It listens on port 3000 by default but you can change that (see
