Glom: Calendar Portal

Over the last couple of days I added a new “layout item” to Glom’s detail view. It works like the existing Related Records portal, but presents the related records via a calendar. It uses Mathias Hasselmann’s recent gtk_calendar_set_detail_func() addition in GTK+’s svn trunk.

Obviously this isn’t a perfect example. Any school administrator would be annoyed at having to add new lessons every week even if they are the same as the week before. Schedules are notoriously difficult to handle in generic database systems, but maybe there’s a neat way to even make this example useful by adding just one or two new features.
