    Mozilla/Kontact connector

    Hello,

    I'm looking for a connector which can be used to connect from Mozilla Thunderbird and one for use with kontact. It should be able to handle appointments, tasks and address books.

    As far I know there is no real connector for mozilla yet. Kontact from KDE4 has a (maybe not finished) akonadi ressource for opensync but it requires various libs (opensync, samba4, etc). Its horrible to get it to build.

    One way to get appointments and tasks is to use the ical ressource on zarafa which is possible with thunderbird and kontact. But addressbook entries are not accessable and the configuration must be done manually. You have also take care to use the right urls.

    Now I think we need 2 connectors: one thunderbird and one for kontact (in my opinion for KDE4 _and_ KDE3).
    Maybe a shared base could be useful.

    I had talked with A. Rößler on Linuxtag 2009 in Chemnitz (in Germany) and he point me here to publish my ideas. I'm willing to help/work on creating such an connector to get an solution for open clients. I'm open for comments/help/etc.

    Just talk here


    Best regards

    Christoph

    Hi Christoph,

    do you have some news, about the connector front ?

    I'm thinking about solutions to connect to the zarafa server using akonadi resources. If we found a way to get all the Information we need, we can perhaps develop a new akonadi resource.

    Another idea is to use the zarafa sdk and develop an extra service running on the server, who translates the openmap/openchange/or-something-else-Calls to zarafa compatible calls.

    That is a good idea.

    Thats more better I think, groupdav sounds good.


    With best regards

    Hello Steffen,

    Someone created a plugin for the carddav protocol that is in the 7 version.

    You can find more info about it here:

    Can we hope for built-in Carddav support in 7.0, especially Apple Addressbook in OS X (and Linux/Thunderbird/Sogo-Connector)? This is the last puzzle to complete my private Groupware.

    Thank you, bye!

    Hello Sledgehammer,

    I can tell you that it is unlikely to make it into 7.0. Maybe 7.1.
