Example of API docs lists all events

See original GitHub issue

Hello all,

I’ve tried to implement the calendar API with a simple nodejs server. I just copied the quickstart exmaple form here: Google Calendara Node Quickstart

It all works fine, besides the issue, that I can’t filter any events. Instead of receiving only requested events the API lists all events in calendar:

function listEvents(auth) {
  var calendar = google.calendar('v3');{
    auth: auth,
    calendarId: 'primary',
    timeMin: (new Date()).toISOString(),
    maxResults: 10,
    singleEvents: true,
    orderBy: 'startTime'
  }, function(err, response) {
    if (err) {
      console.log('The API returned an error: ' + err);
    var events = response.items;
    if (events.length == 0) {
      console.log('No upcoming events found.');
    } else {
      console.log('Upcoming 10 events:');
      for (var i = 0; i < events.length; i++) {
        var event = events[i];
        var start = event.start.dateTime ||;
        console.log('%s - %s', start, event.summary);

AS response I get every single calendar entry (currently 63 items from 2014 till end of 2018). So either timeMin nor maxresults have any effect on the query… I’m doing something wrong? I currently only tested it local but it should work in debug mode as well, or?

Environment: Windows 10 Node: V8.9.2

Any tips? Or is this just a bug. To check it again, I’ve set up a new nodejs project which only contains the quickstart example file. But same result

Use those versions and change a little something like below.

npm install googleapis@25.0.0 --save npm install google-auth-library@1.0.0 --save

let google = require('googleapis');
let OAuth2 = google.auth.OAuth2;
let oauth2Client = new OAuth2(clientId, clientSecret, redirectUrl);
let events =;

Yeah - for others that fall into this, the trick is to not install your own version of google-auth-library. That quickstart had some really bad advice. Just install googleapis, and it will bring it’s own copy of google-auth-library along with it 😃
