Kdepim Synchronization With Web
« on: April 09, 2007, 05:58:23 am »
Well, after much mucking about,
I have a sync solution which works with an online calendar server and is bidirectional.

It uses kdepim 2.2.7 (version matters as ical definition has changed)
and thyme 1.3, an online calendar server available from http://www.extrosoft.com,
if you'd like to use my calendar server instead of installing it, send me a PM.

The beauty of the method is that changes are synchronised nicely and it's all ical so can be accessed from Firebird, Apple iCal etc...

Ok, install kdepim, start kopi (after reset) and edit the settings in >>Synchronize>>Configure
   1.  Change your device name to zaurus
   2. Make a new profile, I called it thyme
   3. Set the Profile Kind to "Remote File"
   4. enter the following commands (I used wget first, then curl but I'm sure you could just use curl)

Pre sync (download)
   cd /tmp && wget  --user=USER  --passwd=PASSWD -N http://myserver.com/thyme/remote/ical.php/2/zaurus.ics
   
Local temp file
   /tmp/zaurus.ics
   
Post sync (upload)
   curl -u USER:PASSWD -T /tmp/zaurus.ics http://myserver.com/thyme/remote/ical.php/2/zaurus.ics

I havent tested either PHP calendar, but this looks like a free, simple, .ics web display php script alternative.   From a quick look, it looks like the same procedure would work with the phpicalendar script.

Looks interesting, let me know if you get the sync working.

EDIT
I've had a bit of a look at it, but it is not as complete a solution as thyme,
which allows creating of new events on the web as well as synchronisation.
Just to recap, with the thyme/korganizer combination I can create and edit event on the web AND the zaurus and they are updated between the two.

I haven't tried, but this the extrosoft website (http://www.extrosoft.com/) lists ways of importing/exporting to outlook.  It doesn't look there is a simple sync solution as outlook only supports the ical 2.0 format incompletely, but I think manual export/import of CSV files works (maybe could write a script).

I know this is a pretty old thread just wnted to report I followed a similar procedure to sync with davical:

http://rscds.sourceforge.net/

I was using davical to sync my agenda between two laptops my blackberry and samsung u700 and some co-workers, now i can have this on my Zaurus too.

The procedure is pretty similar:

presync:
cd /tmp && wget --user=USER --password=PASSWORD -N http://SERVERADDR:81/caldav.php/USER/home/ && mv index.html mycalendar.ics

post-sync:
curl -u USER:PASSWORD -T /tmp/mycalendar.ics http://SERVERADDR:81/caldav.php/USER/home/
