calcurse: Copy local objects to the CalDAV server and vice versa.
$ calcurse-caldav --init=two-way
try on your machine

The command "calcurse-caldav --init=two-way" is used to initialize the synchronization between the calcurse calendar application and a CalDAV server, allowing you to synchronize your calendar data between different devices.

Here is a breakdown of the command and its options:

  • "calcurse-caldav": This refers to the calcurse-caldav command-line utility, which is a component of the calcurse application designed for synchronizing with CalDAV servers.
  • "--init": This option is used to initialize the synchronization process.
  • "=two-way": This indicates that the synchronization will be performed in a two-way mode, meaning that changes made to the local calcurse calendar will be sent to the CalDAV server, and updates from the server will be applied to the local calendar.

In summary, this command allows you to initiate a two-way synchronization between your local calcurse calendar and a CalDAV server, so that any changes made in either location will be reflected in the other.
