Overview

Colorize events in the new Google Calendar. (Keywords: Gcal color colors event)

In the old (pre-2018) Google Calendar, the names of events were shown in different colors. Google changed it to show the names in black, with just a colored dot to the left of the name to show the event's color. This extension changes the text color back to the event's color, and hides the dots. Events take up slightly less space without the dots. TO CLARIFY, this extension does NOT add new colors, nor does it provide a new way to choose colors. That function is already built into Google Calendar: (1) Each of your calendars has a default color; that calendar's events are shown in that color unless changed. You can change a calendar's color in the Settings. (2) When creating or editing an event, there's a dot that shows the event's color; click the dot to change the color. Open source, hosted on GitHub. If you have any problems or requests, the best thing is to file an issue there. Or fix it yourself and submit a pull request! https://github.com/adelespinasse/gcalcolor

Hi, I really liked this extension, but its behaviour has changed over the last couple of days. Previously if I put a colon after a word at the beginning of an event title, it would appear highlighted in the label colour. This was extremely useful for making particular events visible and distinguishable. But now this facility is gone, can we get it back? Win 11 PC Edit: it's back! I hope it stays, the alternative of coloured text with a dot is hopeless.. added another star

That must have been a change in Google Calendar, not the extension. I didn't even know about that method. Google Calendar makes small changes all the time, whereas I haven't updated this extension in several years (it says January 30, 2024 on the Chrome Web Store page, but that's only because I updated the description).

I don't get it. I saw nothing to add custom colors.... and the details literally don't say how to use this. There is NO WHERE to add new or custom colors.

Please see the clarification in the description. GcalColor does not add new colors and does not change how colors are chosen, it just changes the color of the text to match the dot, then removes the dot.

it has changed the name to the color instead of just a colored dot (THANK YOU!) however, I cannot find any additional colors. What am I doing wrong? No + sign or new colors on list thanks!
