A syncronization tool for vdir

Project description

vdirsyncer synchronizes your calendars and addressbooks between two storages. The supported storages are CalDAV, CardDAV, arbitrary HTTP resources and vdir.

While i use it daily and haven’t experienced data loss (even when vdirsyncer crashed), i don’t know if the documentation is sufficient. If you have any questions regarding the usage, feel free to open a new issue.

It aims to be for CalDAV and CardDAV what OfflineIMAP is for IMAP.

CardDAV/CalDAV Server Support

vdirsyncer is currently tested against the latest versions Radicale and ownCloud. While Radicale seems to work perfectly, ownCloud currently has problems detecting collisions and race-conditions. However, given that this is a problem with every setup involving ownCloud, and that ownCloud is widely used, it apparently isn’t big enough of a problem yet.

See Bug #16 for informations on problems with ownCloud.

How to use

As all Python packages, vdirsyncer can be installed with pip:

pip install --user vdirsyncer  # use the pip for Python 2

Then copy example.cfg to ~/.vdirsyncer/config and edit it. You can use the VDIRSYNCER_CONFIG environment variable to change the path vdirsyncer will read the config from.

Run vdirsyncer --help. If you experience any problems, consult the wiki’s troubleshooting page or create a new issue.
