CalDAV: Sync Google Calendar and iCal

Thank you Google!

For some time now, I’ve stopped using Google Calendar in favor of iCal. I used to “try” manually syncing them before through, well, the export/import method. I finally got tired at some point, and although third-party tools came out eventually, I was satisfied with my local calendar setup.

Now i’m glad CalDAV is officially out, and such hassles are out of my way. The steps from Google Support page are as follows (yep, that simple!):

  1. Download the set-up tool here.
  2. Open the tool and enter your Google Account username and password.
  3. Click Sign in.
  4. Select the calendars you’d like to add to iCal (Note you may only add calendars for which you have ownership privileges), and click Add to iCal.
  5. Add your email address to your Address Book card by selecting Add Email. You’ll be prompted to add your email address only if your address is not already in your Address Book.
