[Ubuntu QML] Importing Google Contacts
December 17, 2013 13 Comments
I have a lot of contacts in my phone… I am sure you will have more, but syncing over 500 contacts to Ubuntu phone using the command line for Syncevolution gets tedious.
So I wrote a little QML app to do the trick for you. Unfortunately, to run a system command the application has to run unconfined, so I have not yet submitted it to the store.
But if you want to install it yourself it is pretty simple:
- Download this file
- push the downloaded file to your phone, like so: adb push com.ubuntu.developer.vtuson.contactsimporter_0.9_armhf.click /home/phablet
- then run this to install it: adb shell “sudo -u phablet pkcon -p install-local /home/phablet/com.ubuntu.developer.vtuson.contactsimporter_0.9_armhf.click”
You should be good to use it now, the app looks like this: (and if you want to check out the code is here)
