Create calendar events from Keyboard Maestro


Hey guys, I’m looking for a way to create calendar events from KBM variables I’ve collected trough RegEx (names, start/end dates/times and location).

As I could not find an action that makes them on KBM itself, I guess I could use Automator for dealing with it, but I was unable to have KBM serve it’s variables into Automator Workflow.

I guess I could also use Applescrit for It, but I’m so noon on it.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!


AppleScript will probably be the easiest way - you can read Keyboard Maestro variables into it no problem.


It will depend on what you’re doing—Applescript does sound like the most obvious but if you’d rather avoid it (and I can’t say I would blame you; it’s something I need a lot more practice with!) you might be able to save the variables into a text file or something and then use something else to perform the next step—maybe Automator with a Hazel rule trigger would work? (Or I guess you could jump over to iOS and run Shortcuts but that doesn’t seem terribly convenient.)


It is possible to send variables to Automator from the command line if you do want to use Automator.

This post has a good example.

Hope that helps.
