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.


Currently tested with:

  • Arch Linux
  • Nextcloud 16.x VCF version 4


  • [x] Refactor into a proper command line application
  • [x] Test with multiple vcf versions.
  • [x] Ability to add directory of vcf files
  • [ ] Ability to update existing addressbook with new contacts/emails
  • [ ] vdirsyncer/caldav support(?)
  • [-] Build deployment packages
    • [ ] AUR
