|adx - addressbook.xml|
What is adx
|What you need||A web browser.
See known issues for Chrome/Chromium below.
|OS||Operating System independent (e.g. Linux, Windows, Mac OS, etc.)|
Contact management incl. web accounts
Skype, Twitter, Soup.io, Delicious, Digg,
|Semantic data||Microformats (hCard, XFN)|
|How it works||XML + XSLT = HTML
address book (XML file) is tranformed (XSLT file)
by web browser to HTML
|What you should know||adx provides no editor for contacts.
Contacts are stored in a simple text file (addressbook.xml)
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. See known issues below before you start.|
Chrome/Chromium 5+ works by default only online (but not locally).
Reason: Chrome's more restrictive security model.
Workaround: Start Chrome/Chromium with cmd line param "--allow-file-access-from-files"
IE: changing a security option may needed to get started
Firefox 3+, Opera 9+, Safari 3+, IE 6+, Chrome (see workaround above).
While browser versions mentioned were tested at least once, for latest release only following
browser were actively tested (under Ubuntu): Chromium 34 and Firefox 31.
If you encounter any browser issues please let me know.
