Syncevolution extension

Orrin McGill
I am looking for someone that uses the extension "Syncevolution" to sync their Android cell phone with Evolution address and calendar.

Or recommendations for a better solution.

I haven't decided on which extension to use if there are others.

I am using Linux Mint 19.3 and Evolution 3.28xxx

Once you found someone, what would happen / change?
Basically: Please ask instead of asking to ask. :)

(Also, IIUC it is not some extension but an application on its own.)

If you (or anyone) has improvements for

        Hi,
the SyncEvolution is a 3rd-party software, it is not part of the
Evolution project. You may get better luck using their mailing list:
[hidden email] .

For what it's worth, I'd recommend to use some public server (like
Google, when you talk about Android) and connect the phone and
Evolution itself to it, without a need of the man-in-the-middle (the
SyncEvolution). The advantage is that the data will be on the (Google)
server, no need to take care of its backup and such. The disadvantage,
maybe, is that the data will be on the (Google) server, you'd need the
connection to it in order to synchronize the data.
        Bye,
        Milan

Both sides [Android & Evolution] also support CardDAV/CalDAV so you can
have network based client/server sync without depending on a
proprietary "cloud" [aka: SaaS] service.

Client/server is very much how these devices and apps are designed for,
and provides a smoother experience.
