I finished the European/German rules. I was faster then I planned I would be, because the rules I had from earlier were not as bad as I thought.

General Stuff about the Rules
I made Hazel rules for dates with the two formats:
- Gregorian little-endian, starting with day (Day-Month-Year, Europe)
- Middle-endian, starting with month (Month-Day-Year, U.S./English)
In addition both versions support the Gregorian big-endian, starting with year (Year-Month-Day) format.
Everybody heard (e.g. here
) of syncing errors, data loss, doubled entries with Calendar and iCloud. But even if iCloud gets more reliable one day, it is nice to have an additional, up-to-date backup of Your Calendar data. Of cause Time Machine does the job, too. But I like having an off-side in-the-cloud backup and I like Dropbox
(referral link). Maybe there are other ways to automatically do the backup, but on a quick web research I didn’t find anything for my needs. So I created a time triggered Keyboard Maestro
workflow, which does the job.
This article is about automatically backing up a Contacts app archive. The whole workflow is very similar to Automatically Backup Calendar to Dropbox with Keyboard Maestro, so I won’t go into details.
