What is Conduit
Conduit is a synchronization application for GNOME. It allows you to
synchronize your data between online web services (Gmail,, Flickr, etc) and your computer.

What Can Conduit Do
From an end user perspective Conduit has reached the level of being
useful. Conduit can currently perform the following sync partnerships;

* Two way file/folder sync on gnomevfs volumes
* Two way Tomboy note sync via gnomevfs volumes
* Two way Tomboy note sync via ipod notes
* One way sync of files/folders of photos to Flickr, Smugmug and Picasa
* One way sync of FSpot tagged photos to Flickr, Smugmug and Picasa
* Sync and export of Evolution memos and tasks.

In the one way sync/export case Conduit is smart in the sense that if
a piece of data has not been modified then it will not be
synchronized/exported again, it will replace the existing data.

Conduit has a full featured DBus interface to allow other application
authors to use Conduit to perform the synchronization and export tasks
of their applications.

Whats Planned For Future
 * Gnome mailing list!
 * Google gdata support (Notes, docs, base)
 * Direct PC-PC sync over local LAN using Avahi

I am actively looking for help with this project. Contact me if interested.
 * Conduit is written in python and PyGTK
 * Conduit has been designed to be easy to extend. It implements a
plugin system much like deskbar.
 * One of Conduits main aims is to encourage other developers to
come onto the project through supplying:
     ** Full API Documentation:
     ** Developer Walk through:

More and more people use online services to organise their life, I
hope Conduit can be the bridge between peoples computers and the web.
