I am looking for a simple way to generate calendar pages in LaTeX, something like this: http://www.latextemplates.com/template/monthly-calendar - however without me having to think about the "correct" week-days to calendar alignments. It should be possible to automatically layout the pages correctly by specifying the date (e.g. February 2017).

Furthermore, it must be possible to edit the text in the calendar easily in LaTeX, so this not just for print out and filling in with ink. I guess the best would a two step process, one that generates the LaTeX file with entries for every day, and then one can edit the agenda of particular days. Another possibility is to have the calendar entries in some simpler text format (it should be possible to have this in git version control) and parse and insert them correctly from the latex file.

  • is this helpful: Typeset calendar but with the ability to write notes and todos? (it's one of the suggestions in the "related" column on the sidebar here.) – barbara beeton Jan 29 '17 at 14:09
  • @barbarabeeton thanks, this was indeed the same template I had at hand; the problem is you have to manually construct all the months. I'm looking for something procedural that basically creates this template with parametric input for month and year – Emit Taste Jan 29 '17 at 14:13

    this answer (which probably isn't helpful otherwise -- tex.stackexchange.com/a/1227/579) mentions that it's necessary to use python to access the relevant dates. maybe a request for enhancement regarding the cited calendar at latextemplates would be worth trying. – barbara beeton Jan 29 '17 at 14:24
