I have a new toy – a Nokia N900 cell phone. It is a nice gadget. But I miss a easy way to synchronize my contacts, calendars, tasks etc. with KDE’s Kontact.
N900 <-> USB/WLAN <-> Laptop/Kontact
Yesterday I ask for a solution to synchronize (at freenode#kontact). The answers are more or less: Setting up a Groupware-Solution (e.g. Horde) – sync the phone with this server – sync Kontact with the server.
But I think there must be easier solution for “normal” users without setting up such a server. And now I have a new long-term pet project.
I found a few tools that I could possibly use (The list is not exhaustive.):
- SyncEvolution (N900/Maemo side)
- the build-in synchronization – ? (N900)
- Akonadi SyncML Agent (Kontact side)
But at first I have to bootstrap my C++, Qt and KDE-programming knowledge. My plan is to help kde-pim a little bit to become familiar with the whole environment. At the moment I’m setting up a KDE development environment. It runs in a VM. If I have more experience, I will run it directly on my gentoo os.
So, qt-copy is compiling… 😉
Btw. I finished the go-lang tutorial. I like the language. But at the moment I have no project to use it.
