Contact book application
Open, NormalPublic

Description

Our Plasma Phone dialer features a basic contact book application which can show contacts from the KPeople backends.

It needs more fine grained controls and functionalities. such as,

  • Ability to add new contact
  • Ability to remove contact
  • Modify existing contacts

Several address books should be supported; e.g. local (device-only) account, nextcloud account, etc

These functions would make use of the KPeople API, KContacts and KGapi for Google accounts.

Knowledge Requirements: Willing to learn Qt/QML, CMake

System Requirements: You can develop this application on normal Linux system, and test it in native Linux system. If you want to test it on Plasma Mobile system, you can use actual Mobile device or Plasma Mobile x86 ISO in emulated environment.

I can start working on this task. I have experience in QT and C++ and CMake as I using it for some of mine and some floss projects. Not that much experience in QML but I'm learning it for one more floss project too.
Do we have some basic source code for this up which should be improved or it need to be developed from scratch? I will study API's and QML now and please answer with should I start developing this and if some more resources are needed please refer me to proper addresses.
Thanks

Thank you for working on this! You can use our app development documentation and app template as a starting point. The existing dialer application will probably be helpful as well.
