Sunrise, the excellent calendar that was bought by Microsoft just to shut it down, is going offline on 31 August.
Thus, I was looking around for replacements on the various platforms I use (Sunrise was available for all of them) and that could synchronize at least my iCloud and Google calendars (Sunrise even synced Facebook and Gitlab out of the box).
The latter was the hardest part because syncing iCloud calendars is not supported.
Well, of course it is – because Apple actually is using the calDAV protocol. But as usual, there is no official documentation.
Fortunately, I found a resource that – although outdated – gave me the right clues to connect Lightning with iCloud.
Here is what you need:
If you replace the two placeholders,
Now enter this URL as “CalDAV” location into the Lightning dialog for creating a new calendar, and – after the calendar was added – your credentials*, and voilà! you should be able to sync your first** iCloud calendar in Thunderbird.
* Don’t forget to use an app-specific password if you are using 2-step authentication!
