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

|IN PROGRESS||Add widget to PersonViewer to view associated websites|
|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)|
|DONE||Rename examples||[mailto: Aleix Pol
< Aleix Pol
|IN PROGRESS||Fix tests||PersonData 80% done. PersonsModel to do||[mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org
|DONE||Cache sub-resources in PersonsData||Vishesh to implement in Nepomuk Core||[mailto: vhanda
|DONE||Move KTp plugins to k-ci-i|
|DONE||Add method to KTp::ContactsModel runtime switch from libkpeople or not.|
|TODO||Add PersonData method to KTp::Contact|
|TODO||KTp Contact has helper methods to get name + avatar for person|
|TODO||KTp ContactFactory can get personData as a feature on load, otherwise use Tp stuff.|
|TODO||Fix the singleton AccountManager problem||I don't know how many times I've shouted at people about the problem with using AM as a singleton.. and now we've done it in libkpeople. Brilliant.|
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:
Anything else in the main lib is private and thus I don't care.
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.
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.
