Hi, I just started developing a custom addressbook(1) backend and have a few questions regarding the API. First I wonder about the functions get_contact_list, get_contact and get_changes. They don't seem to be used by evolution. Are there applications around that use them? Do bad things happen if I don't implement them (set the callback to NULL)?
The other thing I can't get to work is authentication. If I abort an action with GNOME_Evolution_Addressbook_AuthenticationRequired then evolution is simply displaying me an error message. I would have expected that it asks me for username and password and calls the authenticate_user callback. How can I get this working? Greetings, Matze (1): If you wonder about what sort of backend I'm hacking: I'm scratching an itch after failing to setup openldap/groupdav servers correctly. I'm hacking a backend that works on a simple webdav server (no groupdav extensions needed) it probably won't scale for thousands of addresses has race conditions (an address might theortically appear twice if 2 users modify it at the exact same time) but you can use any webdav server and it already works nicely and fast for my 50 personal contacts... _______________________________________________ Evolution-hackers mailing list Evolutionfirstname.lastname@example.org http://mail.gnome.org/mailman/listinfo/evolution-hackers
