Manage contacts via CLI

Project description

folks.py [id] [property] [property=value]

A simple CLI address book with backend stored in an .ini-file
(default ~/folks.ini).

USAGE
folks is intented to be grep-, sed-, columns-, cut- and awk-friendly:

# list all id's
./folks.py
# output:
sven
rocker
nisse

# list properties of given id
./folks.py sven
# output:
name:Sven Larsson
tele:+4670677151
email:sven@larsson.com

# get some options of an id
./folks.py martin | grep phone | cut -d: -f2 # output: +46462462446
# shortcut, if you don't like grep:
./folks.py sven tele
# output:
+4670677151

# sets properties
./folks.py sven tel=325236266 email=sven@email.com

# search (and limit output to certain properties if you want to)
./folks.py --footballers=1 tele
# output:
sven:tele:0703453455
martin:tele:070143151

If you need more import channels than stdin, edit the text file. I'm
just a frontend.

PROPERTIES

You are yourself responsible for what a "property" is, for example
"tel" vs "tele" vs "telephone". If you want to consolidate the format:

sed -i -e 's/^tele /tel /' your-file.ini
