A cli tool for converting vcf files to abook

Project description

VCF to addressbook

A python script for converting .vcf contact files into abook files to be used in the addressbook program for Mutt/Neomutt.

Note: This project is in the Alpha stage. Help with testing on various distros/vcf versions would be appreciated


  • Python 3.6+


Run pip install --user vcftoabook


Simply run vcftoabook file.vcf to generate an addressbook file. VCFtoAbook also works on directories and will parse all the .vcf files in a given directory and output one addressbook file. You may also specify an output file/path with vcftoabook file.vcf -o <path>/<filename>. Run vcftoabook -h for help.

To update an existing addressbook file, specify the -a flag and point your -o flag at the path to your addressbook file. VCFtoAbook will attempt to merge new incoming contacts with your existing ones and overwrite your output addressbook. Backups not included. Example: vcftoabook -ao ~/.abook/addressbook somecontact.vcf
