When I am away from my computers, I often need to see the appointments of the upcoming weeks in order to make arrangements. Unfortunately, I can't make Android MobileOrg sync with my local Android calendar. As a workaround, I generate a screenshot of one of my agendas (a month, no todos, only appointments).
Since I am not able to define this PNG image as my lock-screen background (my original plan), I created a lock-screen link to the image instead. To get to the agenda from lock-screen I have to slide the lock-screen link, enter my security pattern, and then my image viewer shows me the agenda.
To semi-automate the generation/update of the screenshot image, I am using following Elisp snippet:
(defun my-export-month-agenda-to-png-via-screenshot() (interactive) (message "Generating agenda ...") (org-agenda nil "n") ; generates agenda "n" (one month without todos) (if (my-buffer-exists "*Org Agenda*") (switch-to-buffer "*Org Agenda*") (org-agenda-list) ) (message "Waiting for Screenshot ...") (sit-for 1) ; (sleep 1) ... doesn't re-display and thus screenshot ; showed buffer before switching to agenda (message "Say cheese ...") (setq myoutput (shell-command-to-string "/usr/bin/import -window root /home/vk/phonesync/agenda.png")) (message (concat "Screenshot done (" myoutput ")")) )
