Tutorial How to Teamspeak Sinusbot & Google Calendar


New Member
- VPS (virtual private server, Linux Preferred)
- Apache Webserver with a website that is running
- a Functional Teamspeak Server
- Python 3

- This Script: https://github.com/SeattleDSA/google-calendar-helpers
- Sinusbot: https://sinusbot.github.io/docs/installation/linux/
- This Script for Sinusbot https://forum.sinusbot.com/resources/rss-feed.143/
- Calendar API and a public calendar

I am not going into full detail, if you read this i assume you followed the tutorials on the above websites !!

1. Create a Google API Key https://console.developers.google.com For more info read the tutorial on this webpage: https://github.com/SeattleDSA/google-calendar-helpers

2.Download and extract/Deploy the Google Calendar Helpers Script, i would advice you to put it into your apache folder, since this is public accesable ( /var/www/html/Calendar)

3. Configure config.py.example and change the name to config.py when you are done. (you only need to fill in the details of the Google stuff)

3. test the script python gen_rss.py -> if succesfull it will create a folder called output with yourfile.rss

4. Install Sinusbot (follow the tutorial on https://sinusbot.github.io/docs/installation/linux/) & make your sinusbot admin or assign the right permissions for channel editting

5. Download the rss reader script and place it in /opt/sinusbot/scripts

6. Restart Sinusbot and log into the Sinusbot webinterface

7. on the web interface open settings -> scripts and look for RSSFeed

8. set it to english, give it the timeinterval you want (i have 60 minutes)

9. Configure your RSSFeed
- Rssfeedlink -> yourwebsite.com/output/yourfile.rss
- feed to channel (specify your calendar channel here)
- Maxfeed 0 (amount of items displayed)
- Limit Characters 300
- Feed Array output: [size=+2]%FeedTitle[/size]
%Feedday %Feedmonth %Feedyear
- The other settings can be left empty

10. look in your teamspeak if the channel is updated, if not check your sinusbotlog

11. Final Step: since the serverside is not automated yet, you need to create a cronjob, if you do not know what it is please search for it. Basicly it is a small script/task you create to make stuff automaticly happen

Open your Linux Terminal and do this:
sudo crontab -e

0 * * * * cd /var/www/html/calendar && source venv/bin/activate && python gen_rss.py

Then save this, with these settings and if you do everything right you will have a calendar channel that updates every hour.

If you are unsure Reboot everything and see if it is working.
