Yes. LiveWhale Calendar is a LAMP-based, PHP/MySQL application with fairly simple system requirements. We do provide cloud hosting services, and can also do CORS-based embedding of hosted calendars in your pages. Finally, data from the calendar is freely available in RSS, ICAL, and JSON formats for use on third-party websites.
Hi, we’re White Whale Web Services. We’re a web design and development company that works exclusively with colleges, universities, and independent schools around the world. We create beautiful, useful, and truthful work that reflects the authentic spirit of the communities it represents.
We developed and released LiveWhale CMS, a full featured enterprise web content management platform, in 2007-08. We released LiveWhale Calendar, an independent product based on the same platform (and included with the CMS), in 2012.
We think our products are easier to use than any other enterprise software available today. Every decision we make is with the needs and habits (and hopes and dreams) of our users in mind.
Our client list includes the University of Oklahoma, the University of Akron, NYU, Georgetown Alumni, Syracuse School of Architecture, Texas A&M, Tarleton State University, Adams State Univesrity, Santa Clara University, Marian University, Carthage College, Lake Forest College, Lewis & Clark, College of the Atlantic, Ursinus College, Penn Law, Penn Nursing, Penn Medicine, Alma College, Southwestern University, Washington College, Barcelona Graduate School of Education, and more.
It depends on the level of customization you require. A basic installation and configuration of the calendar to match your general design template can be accomplished in as little as 2 weeks.
If you have specific custom design requests, or data migration needs beyond importing feeds from other applications, that can add more time. In general, we suggest that 3-6 weeks is probably a realistic timeline for most implementations.
Free support is by email only, with the exception of emergency support which is available by phone. Guaranteed response times are detailed in a Service Level Agreement (and we’re almost always way faster than we promise to be).
Probably! LWC produces and consumes standards-based feeds, and we have a robust read API; that’s enough to ensure integration with most common database tools. And if it’s not QUITE that easy, we’re also happy to work with you on custom integration projects.
