remind entry to ics with selection
#!/bin/bash
#
# The following script is a ugly hack. But it works, so yeah \m/
#
# It uses awk, cut, head, tail, rem2ics and fzf (whereas this is only for the
# selection-process and could be replaced).
#
# Purpose:
#
# Let the user select one of his remind calendar entries (nicely formatted, though)
# and export this entry to ics.
#
# Note:
# The format the script prints in the selection process is the following:
#
# <number> | <date> | <time (optional)> | <description>
#
# The number is lateron used to re-retreive the entry from remind. If the calendar
# in remind changes in between, this WON'T WORK.
