This module works with all versions of JomSocial and installs natively in Joomla 1.5, 1.6, 1.7, 2.5 and 3.0 in one install package.
The look and feel of the calendar can also be changed via CSS or by creating a theme using the jQuery UI Themeroller: http://jqueryui.com/themeroller/
Use your own custom Themeroller theme or select one of the 25 included themes.
Features of this module include:
Option to limit the calendar to display only public events
Option to limit the calendar to display only certain event categories
Assign different colors to different event categories
Change the look of the calendar via CSS or a jQuery Themeroller UI theme
Choose which calendar views and buttons are available
Other available configuration options include changing the displayed time format, changing the words (language) displayed, and more.
The module includes documentation on configuration options and instructions on how to set up a Themeroller theme and CSS tweaks.
The calendar uses the jQuery library. Joomla templates that load the library at the bottom of a page might cause the calendar to not appear. While I've done my best to avoid this issue, it might require one of the free Joomla plugins that helps you manage the loading of the jQuery library.
- Update includes new, updated look for basic calendar style.

This fully GPL solution cost a whopping $8.00 (yes, you read that right... eight lousy US bucks - which won't even by two combo meals at your average fast food joint). However, it installs and works like a dream.
Major plus points:
JQUERY - Not only is it backed by the power of jQuery, but even comes with the option of disabling jQuery/ jQuery UI embedding (very useful for those like me who use plugins like SC Query or JBLibrary).
THEMING - This calendar uses jQuery UI. You have the option of using the predefined themes (and most them are readily selectable within this module) OR go roll your own at the Themeroller lab - yep, this extension can take your custom themes too. And as a BONUS... if you use SC Query (a free plugin also available here at the JED), you can simply have SC Query load jQuery UI, then select your theme from the options provided in the module.
DOCUMENTATION - This is a HUGE plus, as many extensions suffer from EXTREMELY poor docs, if any are provided at all. READ the doc enclosed, and it explains pretty much everything.
SUPPORT - The developer is very responsive and concerned that you like his work. I found Andrew very approachable and eager to help.
But you want a calendar COMPONENT, you say?
Just download the free and amazing M2C (module to component) extension (also listed here at the JED), put your JS Events Calendar module in a unique template module position (I created one called "calendar"), and then assign that position when you add M2C to your menu items. You now have an instant Jomsocial calendar "component" that looks amazing and a lot more expensive than what it is.
There are only a handful of extensions I've ever been this pleased with (especially commercial, as that lot has proven particularly disappointing overall). This is definitely one of them. Kudos to the developer. Most highly recommended.
