 Sure why not, it's always good for the brain:-)

I did a look at vala. It looks not so difficult.

 The build itself works properly, right? Running your newly build
 Evolution fails, if I read your log correctly.
 

Thanks for your help. You got it.

 It wouldn't be hard to create and install a libsyncevolution.so which
 contains all the necessary logic to execute a sync. That might be
 easier
 than wrapping a command line tool. On the other hand, Genesis already
 does that quite successfully.

OK, Patric. I'll checkout syncevolution code ASAP (tomorrow or on
saturday) and starting finding how I to build such a library, this
should be usefull for other projects, too.

Re: [Evolution-hackers] concurrent modifications of items in GUI and EDS database

 Hello!
 
 I'm currently thinking about synchronizing data with SyncEvolution in
 the background while the user is active with the Evolution UI. Some
 users already do that via cron jobs, but it is known to be problematic
 for several reasons, among them change tracking and concurrent editing
 of items.

I started studing a plugin to do the sync on user request. I'm going to
present my idea in another email just to have clearer threads.

[Evolution-hackers] Cannot run evolution built using jhbuild

2009-01-07 Thread Stefano Canepa
Hi all,
I would like to write an e-plugin to run syncevolution but as I'm new
to evolution development I decide, may be I'm wrong, to start build from
source using jhbuild thinking that this is the quickest way to satisfy
the requirements. I just followed 
http://projects.gnome.org/evolution/build.shtml.

The build process completed with big problems. When I'm running a
Debian unstable with gnome 2.22. When I try to run the new evolution I
get the errors pasted here: http://pastebin.com/m6d825bf5

So my question are:
1) is using jhbuild the correct way to get latest evolution and develop
an e-plugin?
2) what's going wrong the evolution built by jhbuild?

TIA

[Evolution-hackers] Funambol sync from evolution

2009-01-07 Thread Stefano Canepa
Hi all,
I'm trying to develop a plugin to run configure and run syncevolution
on user request. My idea is to have a plugin like the one that sync with
the ipod adding an option on the context menu in calendar and
addressbook. On user request the plugin will run syncevolution,
displaing an error message if there is no syncevolution on the system
and the log and all messages of syncevolution if there are logs or
messages.

I would like to try to develop it in python as I see that evolution is
now capable of loading plugins written in this language, but it should
be no problem in developing in C. Wich language do you suggest to use? 

TIA
sc
