I'm migrating to org-mode and trying to replace desktop calendars (Rainlendar) with org-agenda outputs.

Conky is my first choice, but after all it is not easily written to show such things like the agenda. The syntax has its quirks and there are other issues.

I would like to work with HTML and conky doesn't do that currently. Is there a light-weight desktop app that would show static HTML content with periodical refresh from a file? It doesn't have to support all of the HTML. If the software would react to mouse clicks (to launch the agenda to a larger window, for instance), it'd be preferred.

Yes, I know org can export to ICS. I tried to migrate that in Rainlendar but resulted in too much hassle. – progo Oct 1 '12 at 16:05

A bit later, but I just found this solution. Hope it can help.

The package is Gtk-Desktop-Info.

It's good. :) I'm not running Ubuntu so I'll have to look into the details on installing – progo Jan 15 '14 at 10:42

I do not know what your source org file looks like, but have you tried the "ascii" export option? (C-c C-e a) You could create a batch agenda export job that produces a ascii version of your file or subtree and then have Conky pull in the contents of that exported file.

I export the org-agenda parts in text in a batch process, and I want to apply some coloring to it, hence the question. – progo Oct 5 '12 at 3:16
