Hello.

I am not sure if this stuff has been fixed with in the newest release
but....

1- Is there a way to edit the fields used for when matching horde fields
to the fields with an imported file.
After importing a new list of contacts it then asks me to match my
excel fields to hordes.
My excel file has business street,business city,business zip,biz st
Horde has business addy
I could merge my excel file but I do not want to since when I export the
contacts to print labels I will have to unmerge those fields. So how do
i go about adding fields to horde?

2- Is there an app for black berry?

3- if no app is there a .mobi to look @ email?

Thanks
Eric

Search through the turba archives for a discussion between Michael and me. But basically, you can set the horde fields to anything you want (I don't mean matching, I mean creating the fields so that they exactly match Outlook). Look at sources.php and attributes.php. And keep turba enquiries on the turba list.
2- Is there an app for black berry?
Not that I know of - but I let the horde team comment. However, in my experience if you have a recent blackberry, the webmail client works well enough in a pinch. Even better if you set your options to be icon only.
There is a mimp module (depreciated) that you can install - but that's a very WAP 1.0 experience.

It would be nice to get bona fide clients for Android, BB and iOS, but that would be a job for a developer.

I experimented a bit with the horde XML-RPC interface to do some stuff
with Ansel, on my Android device, and I know that the android-xmlrpc
library works talking to that (although there are some problems with
the android-xmlrpc library in relation to responses which are "NULL"),
but I don't know to what extent the API extends across the mail
modules.

This sounds interesting, anything you can share with us? One of my
goals is to provide an uploader for Ansel for iOS, but haven't gotten
much past the "that would be nice" phase of development.

Hi Mike,

I'll be honest, I got to the point where I could query the API for
what modules were installed, and I think look at what I could get to.

The project is here:
https://spriggs.org.uk/android_and_java/workspace/Horde4Android/

Be warned, it was my first semi-sensible Java project, so the coding
is *ROPEY* as hell.

The person I was sort of working on it with got pretty wrapped up in
other things (between us first starting talking about it, and me
making the SVN repo, she lost her job, and then after I committed the
version you see here, she got a new one which took up all her time),
and I then got distracted by other stuff (I'm a bit of a magpie when
it comes to coding projects :( ) so I never progressed any further
with it.

All the best,

Hi Jon, I thought a while about doing a simple android client for the mnemo
app next january to expand upon that experience later on.
Are you interested in joining?

Hi Ralf,

I'll certainly be following the project with some interest, but I'm not sure
my coding skills are up to the task - especially not in Java. That said, I'd
be happy to give it a try, if you're comfortable with a relative java novice
getting involved?

If you're comfortable with how the android platform lines up, it might be
worth making a library for interacting with the horde rpc system, and then
exposing that as a series of intents, so you could (for example) specify
horde://host.name/rootpath to get the RPC calls working against that root,
meaning you could auto-configure your application by using a QR-Code,
without making your users have to enter a (potentially) long URL into a
device with a small or on-screen keyboard.

A good example of this is the sendtocomputer application.

All the best,

I'm overcommitted, but very interested in this. I have an android
phone, I knew java a while ago, happy to re-learn, and I've gotten as
far as writing and running a hello world app in the SDK. And half my
life is in my Horde install, so having it on my phone in any easy way
would be awesome.

Along these lines... has anyone looked into having Astrid
(http://weloveastrid.com/) use Nag as a backend?

Good idea - I've raised it on their feature-request site:

Yes, when I started using Android. At this point there wasn't any todo
app that was able to support any backends different from their own and
RTM. Has this changed?

I've been using TouchDown for Exchange for this. It supports syncing
tasks via Horde's activesync support. Maybe a bit overkill if you
don't want the rest of the AS functionality, but as Jan said, there
didn't seem to be any stand alone app that would support a custom
backend.


Thanks,
mike
