An Outlook Contact Clone for the CLI (nox)?


Hi,

I would need in emergency an application like this for the console, because I have too much contacts.

In the abook program one cannnot add some notes to it.

Whatever solution, python, perl, ... I take. I would be so happy that a clone of this image could exist under the console.

Why console? - why not? (reply: I work over ssh and do not need x11 for vim or admin)

what about http://code.google.com/p/goobook/?


a cool alternative would be to use the google contacs over CLI
googlecl - command-line tool for access to (some) Google services
is it working to get contacts for MUTT?
Code:
pip or easy_install
-------------------

This is the recommended way to install goobook for most users.
When installing this way you will not need to download anything manually.

Run pip or easy_install::

    $ pip install goobook
    $ easy_install -U goobook

easy_install is part of setuptools which should come with most distributions,
pip is a newer replacement.
forget to install this. My admin will never want to install pip or easy_install


Isnt there a bash script that does like goobook?

Code:
Contacts
Tasks:

add: Add contacts. add "Jim Raynor, jimmy@noreaster.com" contacts.csv
delete: Delete contacts. delete --title Jerkface
list: List contacts. list name,email --title ".*bob.*" > the_bobs.csv
add-groups: Add contact groups. add-groups "Work" "Friends"
delete-groups: Delete contact groups. delete-groups "Friends"
list-groups: List contact groups. list-groups "my group"
how to query?

How to configure login of googlecl without firefox nor X11?








at home I install googlecl, I am coding a code for replacing abook for mutt under sh
Code:
if [ "--list" = "$1" ] ; then 
        google contacts list name,email,phone,address,notes,nickname,im,organization,notes

        exit
fi
