How to: Add Multiple Google Calendars into iCal

16/07/2020 Comments off


Do you have a GMail or Google account and use Google Calendar?  Have you ever needed to view multiple calendars in iCal, but can’t? Getting your Google Calendar into your iCal is fairly easy with a few simple steps.

To begin, you will need to do is fire up iCal, in iCal “Preferences,” and click on “Accounts” at the top. Then under “Account Type” select “Google” and fill out your username and password. After the window disappears go to “Server Settings” and make sure the server address is, and that the port “use SSL” is checked. After you have checked over those things you will need to click on “Delegation” which should be right next to “Server Settings.” Click all the boxes of Calendar Categories that you would like to have in iCal and it in a few minutes your calendar should have the events from Google Calendar. iCal will automatically bring in new changes every 15 minutes; however, if you wish to have it done faster, just change the rate in the “Refresh Calendars” box.

There you go, all of your Google Calendars should now be in iCal, now you don’t have to view Google Calendars’ “Microsoft looking” interface.

Get Lynx for Mac OS X 10.7 Lion

11/07/2020 Comments off

Source: OSXdaily


Lynx is a text based command line web browser, it’s relatively popular within unix communities but it also has a variety of general uses too; it’s great if you want to discretely browse the web and read articles at work or school, and developers use lynx frequently to test accessibility and to roughly estimate how spiders or crawlers view a website. Because it only loads text and avoids javascript and images, it’s also lightning fast.

Anyway, after updating to Lion I discovered my previous installation of lynx was not functioning. Thankfully it’s very easy to install a working version with the help of MacPorts.

Installing and Running Lynx in Mac OS X 10.7 Lion

For the purpose of this walkthrough, we’re going to keep requirements to a minimum and install lynx through MacPorts, here’s what you’ll need:

Assuming you have now installed Xcode 4.1 and MacPorts 2.0, here’s how to install lynx:

sudo port install lynx

MacPorts will then fetch all the required dependencies including ncurses and zlib, and then proceed to install the lynx browser.

Once it’s finished, just type ‘lynx’ at the command line and it’ll launch as expected. You can then hit “G” to go to a URL, or open one directly from the command line.

This opens, for example:


You then just use the arrow keys and return/enter to navigate around a site.

Lynx is great, enjoy!

Add a Recent Items Menu to the Dock

10/07/2020 Comments off

You can add a Recent Items menu to the Mac OS X Dock by using a defaults write command. The default is set to “Recent Applications” but once the Dock item exists you can adjust it to feature other recent items too.

Launch the terminal and enter the following:

defaults write persistent-others -array-add '{ "tile-data" = { "list-type" = 1; }; "tile-type" = "recents-tile"; }'

That needs to all be on a single line, so if you copy and paste it make sure the command is one string.

You will then need to kill the Dock:

killall Dock

Now right-click on the newly appeared Recent Applications Dock item and you can change it to be Recent Applications, Recent Documents, Recent Servers, Favorite Volumes, or Favorite Items.


If you want to remove the Recent Items menu, just drag it out of your Dock.

MailRecent (Mail Plugin for Mac OS X)

Source: Gregory F. Welch

Adds “Copy to Recent,” “Move to Recent,” and “Go to Recent” menu items to Apple’s Mail application. These menu items contain dynamically-updated lists of recently used mailboxes. The number of mailboxes kept in the list is determined by the “Number of Recent Items” setting for Documents in the Appearance panel of the OS X System Preferences.




Once installed (see instructions below) as you drag or option-drag a message to a mailbox, that mailbox should then appear under

  • “Copy to Recent” and “Move to Recent” submenus under the “Messages” menu, and
  • a “Go to Recent” submenu under the “Mailboxes” menu.

Similarly if you use Mail’s built-in “Move To” or “Copy To” menus to move a message to a mailbox, that mailbox should then appear in the lists. The recent mailboxes will be sorted alphabetically, the same as OS X does for recent documents. (You can change the sorting behavior using the Terminal application as described below.)

Un serveur web intégré à OSX

05/07/2020 Comments off

Si vous êtes sous Mac OSX et que vous avez besoin d’un petit serveur HTTP sur le pouce afin de mettre à dispo quelques pages web statiques (pas de PHP, uniquement du HTML), il n’est pas nécessaire d’installer un Nginx ou un Apache.
Il suffit d’ouvrir un terminal et d’entrer la commande suivante :

python -m SimpleHTTPServer 8000

Ensuite, avec votre navigateur sur la machine distante, rendez-vous sur http://IP_DE_LA_MACHINE:8000 (ou localhost:8000 si vous êtes en local) et naviguez dans les répertoires jusqu’à atteindre le fichier HTML que vous souhaitez afficher. A noter que vous pouvez changer le port dans la commande.

Rien de sécurisé là-dedans, donc faites attention, mais l’astuce est toujours bonne à connaitre.
