I'd like to run this on several laptops/desktops. It'd be great to sync changes across machines.

A sync to Google would rock, too -- then just have every machine sync to Google.

Or some other solution.

Thanks,

  • That would be very nice. Looking for it too.

     
  • even syncing via ftp/ssh/sftp will be nice.
    Any way to sync without conflicts.

    Sync is possible using dropbox.

    Save the .osmo directory in dropbox and add symlinks to this in the home folder, so at /home/me/.osmo (symlink)

    This way you have one directory whose data is accessed from multiple systems. Dropbox usually handles conflicts fairly well, though I do my best to reduce its likelihood by quitting the program when possible. and also by setting a sleeptime of around 10 mins so that the program is launched only after the data has been synced

    • labels: --> sync, tasks
    • status: open --> closed
    • Group: --> Next Release (example)

    The file sync method described above is also possible with owncloud or unison.
    Google has no open/standard protocols for sync, let's avoid using proprietary APIs. Standard protocols should be used, and CalDAV is a good candidate (allows syncing events/tasks). There's a general discussion about sync on https://sourceforge.net/p/osmo-pim/feature-requests/121/.

    Closing this for now, feel free to reopen this bug report if you think it's needed, or comment in #121.
