|adx - addressbook.xml|
What is adx
|What you need||A web browser.
Firefox strongly recommended (fastest for adx; works out of the box online and offline/local).
You might need a little command line tweak for other browsers (like Chrome).
|Operating System||Linux, Windows, Mac OS, Android, etc.
The OS doesn't matter, just a web browser is needed.
Contact management incl. web accounts
|Supported online accounts||
Skype, Twitter, Facebook, Google, digg, tumblr, pinterest,
|Semantic data||Microformats (hCard 1.0, XFN)|
|How it works (usage)||Open addressbook.xml in your web browser and
you get an address book with many features
|How it works (technically)||XML + XSLT = HTML
address book (XML file) is tranformed (XSLT file)
by web browser to HTML
|Online usage||Yes (Just put the adx files on any web server)|
|Offline usage||Yes (e.g. drag and drop the files from hard disk to your browser)|
|What you should know||adx provides no editor for contacts.
Contacts are stored in addressbook.xml (text file)
which needs to be edited in an external tool.
A simple text editor works, even Notepad.
|Quick start||Download, unzip and open file
addressbook.xml in your browser
|Supported browsers||Basically all modern web browsers are supported on any OS.
Recommended browser: Firefox (fastest for adx and works out of the box for online and offline/local usage).
For other browsers see known issues below.
Chromium based browsers like Google Chrome, Opera, Vivaldi, Brave work by default only online (but not locally).
Reason: Chromium's more restrictive security model.
Workaround: Start this browser with cmd line param "--allow-file-access-from-files"
IE: Changing a security option to allow active content may be needed to run adx.
Firefox 3+, Chrome/Chromium/Vivaldi/Brave/Opera15+ (see workaround above), Safari 3+, Opera 9-12, IE, Edge.
While browser versions mentioned were tested at least once, for latest adx release only following
browsers were actively tested (under Ubuntu): Firefox, Chromium, Vivaldi, Brave.
If you encounter any issue with a certain browser (version) please let me know.
