The librem 5 is interesting me for all the reasons I have found on this site.
But, I did not read how sync could be done. Caldav and carddav syncs with my nextcloud instance should be done easily.
Are they ?
If not, when could they be ?
yes L5 stack will use EDS exactly for that reason - EDS natively supports ca*dav and will bring remote contacts and calendars. Gnome apps like geary, contacts and calendars are using GOA as identity provider (support nextcloud) and EDS as data provider (supports webdav transport). So fear not for that’s already been thought of.
Yes, you are right. But that only works for now. If we speak about mobile GNOME like for the Librem 5, I doubt that anyone would want to do it like that. Personally I don’t want to use Evolution anymore. I’m waiting for Geary supporting Inline PGP and S/MIME and then I never have to install it again.
It is okay, of course better than Outlook But way too heavy in my opinion. Had an issue which sometimes led to unrealiable mail sending in the past, too. I just want to use Gnome Calender and Contacts (preinstalled) and an application which is only for sending mails. But I configured my mail provider to encrypt all incoming and sent mails with my public PGP key so I’m stuck with Evolution at the moment for these two issues…
CalDAV and CardDAV so far work with Evolution: Install Evolution, add the resources there and you can uninstall it again. They are kept anyhow, so Contacts should show them and yeah - calendar is WIP. It would work there too but not adaptive so far.
