Poor Man's Syncing
« on: March 24, 2009, 10:39:13 AM »
I understand from a few older posts here that actual syncing via SyncML is somehow on the agenda, but not on the roadmap so far, i.e. you don't currently have any release dates planned... but in the meantime could you comment on one or two possible ways of doing a sync for mobile devices anyway?

Here's an idea:
* there already is an ical-export feature. Now couldn't you change the exporter function so that for a specific URL it would return all calendar entries (for a specific set of wrkspaces that i've access to) (for a given interval of time, say 1 month ago and all future entries) without the need of submitting a form, just by calling a URL?
I fantasize that this would be enough for me to subscribe to that ical file within thunderbird / lightning as if it were a live ical server - and then I'd know how to sync the stuff into my mobile phone from there. It would obviously be read-only for now, but hey, that's better than nothing...!

Similar thing with addresses:
* cheapest way here would be if the address book were exported in a field order of my preset, e.g. the Thunderbird Address Book preset. That way at least I'd need only three clicks to re-import the addresses out of OGoo into TB every few weeks. Again, that's read-only for now, but better than nothing.

I suppose I could write that my own if i scrape together my little knowledge of PHP. But I could also imagine there are bounty coders around in this forum perhaps?

of course then one could also think of implementing the full groupDAV protocol http://www.groupdav.org/draft-hess-groupdav-01.txt.
Have you developers any thoughts on this?

EDIT: Sadysta has solved the first part of my question already. I could have used the search function more imaginatively...

Syncing calendar entries from oGoo with Sunbird / Lightning and other ical importing applications (read-only, but hey, it's free):
