Re: [Evolution-hackers] Compile Evolution Mail as .so file with API for other GUI on ARM device


Thank you for answer.

Yes. I'm looking for mail engine that will be able to communicate for instance over DBUS which some UI.
My device does not uses, GTK and Cairo.
It future, I would also append my software with Calendar functionality.

I choosed to work with Evolution because I saw similar email client called Anjal that utilize Evolution but has own UI.

Could you tell me from which git should I clone

And could you tell where to start, or what should I read some to
- build mail engine library ( - should I follow this process)

IIUC you want to use the engine of evolution, but not the UI. If so,
I've been working on a mail daemon which has all the mail logic built
in and exposes mail (basic) interface over dbus. If you aren't
interested in that, you can look at which is a new
library that I added a week ago in master which provides most of what
you are looking at except the UI.
