Subprojects: GPE-ContactsThe contact manager
|Function||GPE-Contacts is a simple but flexible personbal contacts manager. It stores contact details such as addresses and is able to categorize them. It has a very scalable user interface supporting a wide variety of target devices. GPE-Contacts uses DBUS to connect to service provider applications (GPE-Beam and GPE-Bluetooth) to provide IrDA (IrOBEX) and Bluetooth (BtOBEX) support for beaming them in vCard format. The application supports both plain GTK and the Maemo software environments.|
|Coordinators||The coordinators for this sub-project are Philip Blundell (email@example.com) and Florian Boor (firstname.lastname@example.org) If you want to contribute to this project, please contact the coordinators or the GPE mailinglist.|
The application is considered to be stable and is maintained actively. The source code can be found in SVN, module base/gpe-contacts.
Distributions known to ship GPE-Contacts are:
GPE-Contacts is distributed under the GPL.
Apart from the scalable user interface GPE-Contacts makes use of a very flexible database design provided by libcontactsdb. The fields a contact consists of can be modified by an XML description without modifications to the application itself. Major parts of the user interface can be controlled by a keyboard (if present). The import of vCard files is possible from the command line and from the graphical user interface.
