Hey Phil,

Sorry for the delay, but a while ago we wrote an xcomp to wrap libical (https://github.com/libical/libical <https://github.com/libical/libical>) and read/write ICS files.  If google can read ICS then it might be useful.

https://github.com/artsman/Omnisical <https://github.com/artsman/Omnisical>  (Builds are only Studio 5/6 — haven’t tried compiling it on 8 yet)

A lot services just take the ical file as an HTTP POST.
