Nextcloud Integration on Plasma Mobile


Bhushan Shah


Plasma Mobile requires cloud-based sharing to provide scalability and flexibility, cost efficiencies and access to data anytime, anywhere. Nextcloud is a data-sharing platform, which is not only free and open-source but highly secure and easy to use. It is in the interest of Plasma Mobile to implement complete Nextcloud Integration. The system will implement a bidirectional data synchronizer to keep the local data and the data on the Nextcloud server in sync.

Proposal : GSoC Proposal - Nextcloud Integration on Plasma Mobile

Project Goals

1. Add a plugin to implement nextcloud account service.

2. CardDav and CalDav synchronization of accounts added by KAccounts using Sink.

3. Add the contacts synchronized by Sink to the KPeople datasource and hence, accessible to Plasma-Phonebook app.

4. Create a plugin to make calendars and events synchronized by Sink accessible to Calindori app.

5. Create a plugin for files/folders/photos synchronization.
