Exchange Calendar is an **add-on for Thunderbird and Lightning** that provides **Exchange calendar support**.
## Introduction
Exchange Calendar is an add-on for [Thunderbird](
and [Seamonkey](
It extends the [Lightning]( add-on to provide
[Microsoft Exchange]( support.
Exchange Calendar extension can:
* Synchronize calendars, tasks, and contacts with a Microsoft Exchange server.
* Create, edit and update events and tasks.
* Display contacts from your address books and the global address list
(they are only readable, they are usable with address autocompletion).
* Manage the Exchange « out of office » feature.
This extension requires:
* Lightning extension corresponding to the Thunderbird release.
* The Exchange server has to provide an Exchange Web Service.
This extension was developed by its original author (Michel Verbraak) for
Exchange 2007, 2010 and 2013.
The ExchangeCalendar community is now maintaining this extension. Support is
best effort and cannot be guaranteed. Contributions are welcome.
## Contributing
This add-on is open-source and based on the work of many [contributors](
### Installing developement tools
You will need to install Dom Inspector, Javascript Debugger and some other development tools. Fortunately `Thunderbird addons` makes it easy to install all of these:
Now using bash we'll compile the addon we need (which are written in wiki)
This add-on is open source and based on the work of many
This project is a community driven effort to develop and maintain the
"Exchange EWS Provider" extension originally created by Michel Verbraak.
### Provide feedback, report issue
You are welcome to provide feedback on our Github project:
Please note that the project is built only for latest stable Thunderbird release
and latest stable Lightning release.
The more information you can provide about an issue, the easier it becomes to
reproduce and fix. Examples of helpful informations are:
* Thunderbird version
* Lightning version
* Active Thunderbird add-ons
* Log output
### Get project and build it
cd ./exchangecalendar_master; chmod +x ./; ./;
To build the add-on, you have to:
# clone this project
git clone
cd exchangecalendar
# build it
make build
Then an `xpi` file is created in the project folder.
This file is directly installable from the add-on page of Thunderbird.
If it doesn't work, please check you have these tools installed (example for
sudo apt install git-core zip
### Patch the code
To help us to maintain the code, we will be thankful to follow these main
* Use indentation with 4 spaces
* Avoid too long lines, try to break long lines into smaller ones
* Avoid to write "spaghetti" code with too many if/else imbrications
* Try to keep code simple to help us maintain it on long term
Note that our `Makefile` has a `beautify` target which will try to beautify
all JavaScript (requires `jsbeautifier` Debian package) and XML code
(requires `tidy` package) to help maintain a clean code.
When your patches are ready, you are welcome to do pull requests on our
Please help us to review your code by making multiple small pull
requests instead of big ones modifying big parts of the code.
### Translate
You are welcome to provide translation updates on our Transifex project:
