Citadel vCard Sync

Date: Fri, Dec 27, 2013

Imports vCards in to the Citadel Mail Server


Features

  • Citadel Sync will work on most operating systems including Linux, Mac, PC, Android …
  • Converts a multi vCard file in to many for each to hold a single contact
  • Adds UID and REV fields to the vCard if missing
  • Uploads vCards to a given remote Citadel Mail Server
  • You can specify, which folder on the server to upload to
  • Can populate the Display name field from first and last name, or populate first and last name from display name

Features planned

  • Compare revision state and sync in case you modify a vCard on the server. This is not supported in version 1, vCards on the server will be over written by the local once.
  • Create an executable for Android etc.
  • Create a single vCard to hold all contacts, so it can be used as an address book in Thunderbird etc.

Features not supported

  • Does not support non standard vCard fields like: (If you must have one or two of those let me know)
    • X-EVOLUTION-RADIO
    • X-KADDRESSBOOK-X-AssistantsName

Hints:

  • Backup your vCards before you start using citadelsync, both local and server
  • Backup your config file before you upgrade to a new version of citadelsync
