Part of an npm package called gv, the gv contacts command is a way of importing contacts directly from your Google account into ppl. It imports contacts’ names, phone numbers and email addresses.


goog2ppl is a python script for converting a contacts.vcf file exported from Google and breaking it up into pieces suitable for initialization as the contents of a ppl address book directory.
