Scalp is a bundle for iCal that enables the sharing of calendars over FTP, SSH or SFTP connections.
The developer created it, he explains, “because .Mac is expensive and WebDAV can be hard to come by”.
It depends on SIMBL (Smart InputManager Bundle Loader), the same Cocoa application hack that powers the Safari plug-in PithHelmet , iAlert and other useful apps. A copy of SIMBL in included in the disk image and must be installed first.
Full instructions on how to install and run the app (some fiddling with URLs is required) are included in the disk image as well. Note especially the known bugs section.
The hack, which only works with iCal 2.0.3, gets its name from “the unfortunate result” of combining cal and scp, the SSH copy command.
Donations from grateful Scalp users are not refused by the developer. You can get Scalp from his web site .
