Re: [Evolution-hackers] contacts sync from eds to idevice.

Hi Milan,

Thanks shall have a look at syncevolution site did not know it

The updated gtk3 eds-to-idevice code is on github at

It is a one-way sync at the moment and the eds address book functions
used are not using the async functions at the moment.

It dependencies libraries are all available on fedora 3.20
and uses autotools to build at the moment, but could be changed to

If used with iOS 9 or 10 libimobiledevice library will have to
compiled from the lastest git head on github, using Openssl 1.0.2h not
sure if it work with the latest Openssl 1.10 in fedora rawhide.

Any advise on the idea or code or what would be required to
have it included in eds as a sync backend to an idevice would be

As evolution does not have the capability at the moment
to sync contacts to an idevice, I was wondering if this would be 
a worthwhile project to add to evolution.

it sounds interesting. I'm wondering, is it anything what for
syncevolution [1] cannot do? I understand the syncevolution as a
complete solution to move contacts/event/memos/tasks between the
evolution-data-server and the servers (and/or devices, if I'm not
mistaken). That is, maybe it'll make more sense to include it there,
have all of such functionality at one place. That doesn't mean it
couldn't be part of the evolution-data-server, I'm only unsure how
test and maintain the code, because I do not have any idevice (or I
but I'm not aware of it; it depends what you understand behind that
name). By the way, what would be the new dependencies to be able to
compile your code?
      Thanks and bye,
