First I am working on getting the calendar to look good on a phone. Then will be feeding it events to display. then, outputting info on clicked events!
Check it out here! more details soon!
This is just the start!! Also, it’ll be a lowcode approach to having a calendar in Thunkable. Only a little code.
i’m getting this on my android galaxy s20!
You’re getting that in a web preview. You’d want to see it on your phone in the companion app. Lemme know how it looks there
