Hi all,
Coder's Calendar is a Chrome and Firefox extension that I've made,which displays details of upcoming and ongoing coding competitions. Currently shows details of contests on Codeforces, Topcoder, Hackerearth, Hackerrank and Codechef.

Coder's Calendar is available for download at:

Star the project on Github to show your support:
https://github.com/nishanthvijayan/CoderCalender

Please comment if you find any bug or if you don't like any feature.

UPDATE: As requested by many users,I've added the option to filter out websites.Update the extension to see the changes
Click the settings icon on the header to open the options.

Sounds great! I'll wait to see how many upvotes you get and then I'll probably install it! Thanks for your effort!

      It's really good, but I wish there was a way to filter contests by their site or something like that since there are a lot of contests in the list!

Great idea! It would be nice if we could select which contest(site) we would like to see in calendar.

    And it would be nicer if we could remove some contests according to will. Like the Project Euler contest on Hackerrank. No use keeping them in the top 2-3 always.

      Good job. Now I have other updates for you to do, of course if you want to upgrade your application.

      First, GUI of individual contest could be more user friendly. What I mean about it is that icon of site could be on left side (because we read left to right, so we could see that first), next you can change labels like start, duration and end with some icons like start button, stop button and some watch. You could add and end time, too. You don't need day of contest it is unnecessary, because everything is thrown in a small space and we need just one second to move mouse down and click on clock to see a day.

      And second big upgrade would be maybe some button for calendar where we could see all contests for one month.

        Placing the icons on the right felt more natural to me,probably because I'm left-handed I guess. :) Let me see what I can do.It might take a week or more to make all these changes,I'm kinda busy with exams right now. Thank you for the reply.

This project is a lot similar to this one. Even the app icons are similar.

    Yes,the idea is quite similar.I came to know about Challenge Hunt just a few days ago.I does seem rather nice. But I think it is available only in chrome.

      Your app seems to be doing a lot better from what I've seen in the comments. I was using Challenge Hunt so far but I'll give it a go.

    Rev. 2   Vote: I like it 0 Vote: I do not like it

    I'm planning to publish this on Opera soon.But till then you will have to use this workaround.

    1.Go to https://github.com/nishanthvijayan/CoderCalender
    2.Download the project as zip or use git clone.
    3.Now open Opera.Click View->Show Extensions
    4.If Developer mode is not enabled,enable it.
    5.Now click 'Load Unpacked Extension' and open the 'chrome' folder inside the project folder.

    This should install the addon on opera.Worked for me.( using Opera 28.0)

        Huh..that's weird..Check the settings and see if you have accidentally switched HackerRank off..

        If its ON,try switching all options OFF and then ON and see if its fixed.I once noticed a similar bug but I was not able to reproduce it,so I just let it go.

Good job (Y) !!

You can make "Add to calendar" button add the event automatically to Google Calendar without opening the calendar's web page and waiting the user to press "Save" ... as an update.

When I close Firefox and open again calendar item disappears. But when I disables and enables it appears. Can't it start automatically ?!

    Are you saying that the extension icon disappear every time you close and open Firefox? Or it the contest entries that disappear?

        Seems to me like its a Firefox problem.I've never had such a problem before nor has anyone ever reported anything similar.Try uninstalling the extension and installing it again.

Not sure whether this is still ongoing project, but you can take in consideration new UI design for date/time format. Something like this.
