Rainlendar Lite v2.14.2 Updated

billon on 25 May 2018

Rainlendar is a skinnable, easy-to-use calendar that resides on your desktop and shows the days of the current month. You can add events and tasks with customizable icons and formats to the calendar and be reminded when they occur. Rainlendar uses the standard iCalendar format to store its events and tasks so you can easily transfer them between applications.

Cross-platform (Windows, Linux, OS X).

Note: Rainlendar Lite is the freeware version of Rainlendar Pro (Payware). The lite version is missing network shared calendars, Outlook support and other features.

I can't used the translation in the portable version. How can I do it?

The source code of the old version can be obtained here: http://ipi.fi/~rainy/legacy.html

If you look for the old version of Rainlender (v0.22.1) you can get the "pro" features for free (i.e. Outlook, iCalender, etc). The functionality is still the same.

Just amazing interface - very customizable and beautiful; smooth and intelligently designed. Compatible with the ICS open calendar format that so many other programs use (iCal, Mozilla Sunbird, Google Calendar, etc).

Negatively, the program can be occasionally wonky (getting 3 months to display at once takes some work). But a terrific program -- use it daily.

if u use google calendar in rainlendar, do not upgrade to V 2.3 as google calendar is only available in the pro version of rainlendar

To upgrade:

1. Exit program if you haven't.
2. Install as instructed above to a temporary folder.
3. Move all files to your current Rainlendar directory except for "rainlendar2.ini". Start program.

Lite version has a 'portable' installation mode.

Easily the most eye-pleasing calendar out there. Very cool to look at and just as great to use.

As mentioned by webfork in the forums, unfortunately Rainlendar Lite 2.5 seems to be missing the portable option at installation. I don't know yet whether it can still be used portably or not. Version 2.4 still has the portable install, though.

Now that there's no "Portable" option, there's still a method: just install as normal to any directory. Create an empty text file and name it "Rainlendar2.ini" where settings will be saved to. You're all set.

Still use this program daily for over a year.
