Quickfix: Import your nextcloud addressbook into twinkle

Hi All,

 

I just switched to the twinkle-softphone and found that there is no way to import anything into the addressbook. I am currently learning python so I thought this is a nice little project to work on. Note that this only works on python 2.

Tested on Ubuntu 16.04LTS, Ubuntu 18.04,  Nextcloud 13 and TWINKLE 1.9.0

It works for me and may not work for you. Please comment if you have any issues with this.

 

#twinkle addressbook importer for nextcloud

nextcloud_protocol="https://" 
nextcloud_username="your_nextcloud_username"
nextcloud_password="your_nextcloud_password"
nextcloud_url="the_nextcloud_url"

        phone_type=r3[1]

        #write new line to file.

        file.write(this_line+"\n")

#close the file
file.close()
