Alright, I went back to stable release, as it's supposed to be, since there's also gcalcli-git, which is currently broken, because the dependencies have changed radically. See my comment there.

I haven't tested the optdepends yet, so please tell me if they don't provide functionality as intended.

If you switch to gcalcli-git, you'll have to auth gcalcli again on google.

Ok, I haven't updated gcalcli on my system for quite a while. I get

ERROR: Missing module - No module named httplib2

So it looks like I have to look into it. Thanks for the hint itemzero!

"ERROR: Missing module - No module named apiclient.discovery"

Some googling seems to suggest that I should have a "" which has the mentioned module, but it is not present on my system.

Is it possible that is in python-gdata but not python2-gdata?

(Kind of a newbie so I apologize if I'm missing something obvious.)

Note: You'll have to uninstall python-gdata first, because it doesn't seem to be in the conflicts of python2-gdata.

Good point, thanks!

Please change dependency python-gdata to python2-gdata.

Ok, sorry, I was on a bad mood... I'll update it in a minute

It is quite stable. The problem is you're using python3 to run it. gcalcli must use python2 because of the google gdata library. The AUR package needs to modify the shebang to "#!/usr/bin/env python2".

Disowned it again, this is really going on my nerves, I was hoping that the package would be quite stable...

the_isz, you obviously know how to deal with such things, please take the package!

got the following output from the newest version:

File "/usr/bin/gcalcli", line 332
except Exception, e:
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

This is fixable adding the following line to the PKGBUILD after the install

sed -i -e '1s/$/2/' "$pkgdir/usr/bin/$pkgname"

The "real" solution would be to add a file which would then install the
script, automatically adapting the binary name to python2. But as long as it's
only one file, the above solution is totally Ok, too.
