About

LibKPeople is a contact aggregation library for KDE.

It is *not* a KTp specific library, we are simply the first adopters as well as the developers so the wiki page is here for the time being. This page is about the libkpeople changes needed to make a release of KTp with libkpeople support.

Big discussions about libkpeople should CC the pim mailing list.

Setting up

Install libkpeople (https://projects.kde.org/projects/playground/network/libkpeople)

Reinstall KTp, and you have metacontacts everywhere.

You may also want to install PersonViewer a tool to view all contact information from all sources (http://quickgit.kde.org/?p=person-viewer.git)

TODO Port away from QStandardItemModel It's slow and won't be accepted by PIM. PersonItem and ContactItem are fine, we just need to just not inherit from QStandardItem and do model stuff ourselves (apparently)

Public API Review

Below are a list of issues, please resolve (either by fixing or discussing) then remove from this list

The list of public classes are:

  • PersonsModel
  • PersonsModelFeature
  • AbstractPersonsPlugin
  • BasePersonsDataSource
  • DuplicatesFinder
  • Match
  • MatchesSolver
  • PersonActionsModel
  • PersonsPluginManager
  • PersonData

Anything else in the main lib is private and thus I don't care.

PersonsModel

Why is addContactsToPerson async but removeContactsFromPerson syncronous?

I /think/ if you call removeContactsFromPerson that contact is now not in the model, not inserted as a contact anywhere.

Testing

See git://anongit.kde.org/scratch/mklapetek/PersonViewer for a generic "new addressbook" KTp has kpeople support merged as an optional dependency



git://anongit.kde.org/scratch/vhanda/delete-pimo-people.git is a useful too for wiping all PIMO:Persons useful for testing merging repeatedly.
