Add to Calendar Button in Framer

This is an override in Framer that you can apply to any button element to turn it into an "add to calendar" button. It adds an event to the user's Apple or Google calendar, depending on their device. Feel free to copy the code override to your project and start using it on your websites.

How it works?

Since the code supports both Apple and Google calendars, it will automatically detect what device the visitor is using and take the appropriate action.

If the visitor is on a Mac, it will download an 'event.ics' file that can be opened to add the event to the Apple Calendar.

If the visitor is using an iPhone and clicks the button, a sleek native Apple Calendar UI will appear where they can finish adding the event to their calendar.
